We had a discussion going a bit ago about the Georgia representative and his bill about punishing miscarriage and etc. This conversation has been started on one of the debate boards. You do NOT have to go, or even click on the link, it is at the Abortion Debate board.

I responded with my experience regarding pregnancy loss. We though some of you might like to respond with your experiences as well. Apparently in this proposed bill, a woman who suffers a miscarriage will have to PROVE that there was a medical issue or be subject to being prosecuted - up to death. I just can't imagine that - I mean, my miscarriages were for unknown reasons - that means there's no way I could have proved a medical issue. It's just ridiculous.

I haven't clicked on the link and I don't know if I will, but I went to that board a few years ago and just got pissed off. I know everyone has opinions but they can be just heartless. A ttcam girl (at the time) posted over there and they told her she should come back to this board because she was being too sensitive.

Ok, so I just went to the board (after I said I prob wouldn't!) and it was NOTHING like it was a few years ago. I actually didn't get angry! This whole proposed bill is just stupid! Anyway, thanks for sharing...

yeah Dustie - that's why I listed the board and said made sure to say "you do not have to go" I know it would be too much for some on certain days.

Luckily, I've grown pretty thick skin - not too much bothers me anymore, I guess I just don't care enough, IDK.

People can be so cruel, I hope that anyone who doesn't think they can click on it, I hope they don't.

It is ridiculous. Like I said over there, that's like saying had a heart attack, prosecute. Got diabetes, prosecute. High blood pressure, prosecute. Just plain ridiculous.
