86. Actually, yes. The next logical step is to criminalize women who use Birth Control--
Certain websites, contrary to all medical and scientific arguments, insist that birth control pills make women miscarry (abort)--let's not even go into morning after pills, which do just that IF the woman is preggers.

If this law passes than you can move on up to both outlawing morning after pills (probably already outlawed in Utah), and birth control pills. And you don't round up the women and send them to prison. The aim here is to scare them into not doing this sort of thing. You try, (as in certain countries that shall remain nameless but that, for some reason, we're fighting because we consider them backward and barbaric) to scare women into doing what you want them to do. Like don't take B.C. pills or try to terminate a pregnancy. You make them feel guilty, ashamed, criminal, in danger of being imprisoned, an outcast, etc. if they even consider not having babies.

That is the aim here. To intimidate, scare, and abuse women into submission.
