Read this. Just read it.

Utah wants to criminalize miscarriage. Seriously.

I get where they are coming from - they want to prevent some cracked out woman from intentionally trying to kill her fetus with alcohol, drugs, self-harm, etc. But how are they going to determine if an action is "intentional"? How are they going to even know that a woman has miscarried (especially, if she is too afraid to go to a hospital for medical help because she might land in jail). There is nothing but negativity and danger and a lot of falsely imprisoned women down this road.

I am so outraged by this that I honestly have no more words.

I agree! That is super retarded, there is no way you could differentiate between intentional miscarriage and a host of other circumstances. I am dumbfounded by political ignorance yet again...
