Miscarragies to be Illegal in Virginia
Oh so glad I left Arlington/Washington DC now and I'm not even a woman. This is so unbelievable... Get this one: HB1677, "Report of Fetal Death by mother, penalty" and check out the super–scary passage everyone is quoting:
When a fetal death occurs without medical attendance, it shall be the woman's responsibility to report the death to the law–enforcement agency in the jurisdiction of which the delivery occurs within 12 hours after the delivery. A violation of this section shall be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor.Remember when Republicans said they wanted to keep government small and out of your business? Well those days are long gone.
Update: Looks like Cosgrove has rethought his position after getting pummeled with emails. Check it out.
