THIS is APPALLING.  I heard about this a few weeks ago.  Does he not realize the metnal anguish these mothers go through on their own without being accused of something heinous?  Luckily, I think the general population is jsut as disgusted by his ignorance as we are and I highly doubt it would ever get signed into law.  But what an arrogant and archaic a-hole to even PROPOSE something so blatantly ignorant.  I know the bill is vague, and he doesnt specifically mention miscarriage, but it is intentionally vague as to be contrued as such.  What a jackarse

That article is not 100% accurate on the facts. This senator is really targetting abortion because he is pro life,including DIY abortions that some women attempt to pass off as miscarriages.

I dont really care for that senator eitherway

This thread was posted a few weeks ago as well. I don’t think there was ONE bee who thought it was ok.

Yeah, that plan is so offensive on so many levels.  Something like 20% of pregnancies end in miscarraige and he wants the state to investigate all of them for possible signs of abortion?  However you feel about abortion, the idea of investigating women who have just suffered a miscarraige, for some of whom it was a traumatic loss of a very wanted child, is totally unconscionable.  Not to mention a waste of state resources.

Oh if I had another miscarriage, I would totally go to jail – for beating up whatever idiot showed up to investigate me! Stay away from my uterus!

Things like this are so unbelievable to me.  You want to fight the abortion fight, go ahead, but stay on that topic.  Women don’t choose miscarriage and they don’t cause it and to imply otherwise is just moronic.

I cannot even imagine what this man’s thought process must be like. How hateful must you be to implement bills like these?

This is EMBARASSING for the state of Georgia, especially because I’m a life long resident.  It makes me want to scream!

I’m not saying I agree with the bill but I don’t think investigating miscarriages was his intent.  I think it was abortions.  Unfortunately bills are sometimes loosely written, as was probably in this case.

All I can figure is that he is targeting women who have “medical abortions,” i.e the ones induced by taking medicine. RU-486 or something, if I remember correctly. You go home from the doctor and essentially have a miscarriage at home. I suspect that is what he was targeting, though the way it is worded is ridiculously vague and so open to abuse if it were ever signed into law. Could you imagine a disgruntled ex-boyfriend having his ex investigated for a miscarriage because he is angry at her? Ugh!

Complicating the issue is the fact that many miscarriages go unnoticed – some women just think that they’re having an unusually heavy period. To make absolutely sure, I suggest that we send all our used tampons and pads to the senator for his personal inspection.
