The response to a Newsweek profile on Jennie McCormack by anti-choicers has been a bit of a head-scratcher.
Last week, a 20-year-old woman in New York City was arrested on charges of “self-induced abortion” and faces first-degree misdemeanor charges. Initial news reports indicate that she intentionally caused the miscarriage/abortion of her 24-week fetus. The woman disposed of the fetus in what was probably the only way she could think of: wrapped in plastic bags and placed in the trash receptacle of her apartment building.
Rep. Bobby Franklin (R-Marietta, GA) of “rape victims aren’t victims” and, now, miscarriage is “prenatal murder” infamy, is not simply a “Lone Ranger,” as some call him. He’s exactly what happens when we allow a GOP full-scale war on women, girls and families to get this far.
Miscarriage, oops, I mean “prenatal murder” in Georgia; Choose Life plates in North Carolina; and according to a new study mothers who work outside the home are actually making our children sick!
