The place:  Georgia (the State, not the European country)

The evidence:  HB 1

The author:  Rep Bobby Franklin (R)

What he’s done:  has introduced a 10-page bill that would criminalize miscarriages and make abortion in Georgia completely illegal. Both miscarriages and abortions would be potentially punishable by death: any “prenatal murder” in the words of the bill, including “human involvement” in a miscarriage, would be a felony and carry a penalty of life in prison or death.

The result:   Under Rep. Franklin’s bill, HB 1, women who miscarry could become felons if they cannot prove that there was “no human involvement whatsoever in the causation” of their miscarriage.

See the Mother Jones article, here.

First it was redefining rape.  Then changing the designation of domestic-abuse victims to “accusers”.  Now if you can’t prove your miscarriage was natural, they want to charge you with murder.

Insane.  Completely, totally, over-the-edge, insane.  Anyone who can in good conscious be a Republican must simply not understand what their party stands for these days.  The elephant has lost it’s mind.
