Tennessee has passed a bill that identifies mothers who miscarry as murderers


Courtesy of The New Civil Rights Movement:

The Tennessee House last week voted 80-18 to make miscarriage — or the killing of any fertilized egg — murder. Last night, the Tennessee Senate passed by a 28-2 margin a companion version of the bill. The bill specifically includes all embryos “at any state of gestation in utero.” Tennessee’s Republican Governor Bill Haslam has not indicated if he will sign the bill.

To be clear, this bill goes further than covering, say, a violent attacker harming an expectant mother who then, unfortunately, miscarries. This bill, House Bill 3517 and the Senate’s companion, makes anyone’s actions that presumably cause a miscarriage murder. Opponents of the bill question how law enforcement would actually enforce this law or determine if someone’s action was a direct cause of a miscarriage.

1. Salem witch trials begin again

Women, we own the market place. If this state or others refuse to recognize the sovereignty we have over our bodies and our children, then we refuse to recognize the white male dominated power.

Think well what you will "buy" with your freedom or your enslavement.

2. It was either KY or TN debating this last year because they said some women might claim they had

Natural miscarriages were actually sneaking behind the lawmakers' backs and getting abortions or doing away with their babies with the morning-after pill or other such remedies.

In other words, your womb is no longer under your control, it is the property of the state.

Can we call it fascism yet?

The third reich had women locked up in birthing centers to make sure they produced cannon fodder.

This is working up to be the same thing.

3. With all of the crap going on the US,

THIS is what state legislators are working on? What the fuck is wrong with these people? Don't they see real problems that need addressing? I guess they must be getting inundated with letters about forced miscarriages.

4. Why just stop with miscarriage, extend this bill to sperm also

All sperm will need to be collected and held until proper use can be made. This is so far away from simple reality. I thought some years back the anti abortion group would not stop with abortion so now it is complete control of every womans body, sharia law at it's best.

9. Years ago I was laughed at for predicting mandatory uterine inspections after miscarriages.

I would say I have the last laugh, except this isn't funny at all.

12. GOP women should be specifically targeted for prosecution

Any healthcare professionals should make sure that the wives and daughters of GOP politicians are the first reported and the first to go to jail.
