Georgia anti-abortion bill would require investigations of miscarriages
I don't even know what to say about this. I'm fucking fuming. It's like these state governments are not even TRYING to hide their contempt for women's autonomy over their own body.
Like I said previously: ProLife=Pro-Fetus=Anti-Choice=Fuck Women, Who Gives a Shit.
The bill was apparently introduced by Georgia State Rep. Bobby Franklin and would "...classify the removal of a fetus from a woman for any reason other than to produce a live birth or to remove a dead fetus as 'prenatal murder.'"and that it would "it would require miscarriages to be reported by hospitals and other medical institutions, and a fetal death certificate issued."
What. The. Hell.
Of course, this is the same genius that introduced a bill mandating that victims of rape, stalking, harassment, and family violence be re-classified as "accusers."
As others have pointed out, if your car gets stolen, or your house gets broken into, or you have the shit kicked out of you, or you're murdered, then you're a victim. Get raped, and report it, and you're an accuser.

Has Franklin any daughters, I wonder? If something happened to one of them, would he be comfortable with them being referred to as accusers rather than victims?
I was being facetious the other day when I referred to Margaret Atwood and The Handmaid's Tale. I'm not finding it quite so funny now. If you've read it, you know what I mean.
This is downright scary.
