Should House Bill One in in Georgia (Currently on 2nd reading) go into law unamended, abortion will be classed as murder.
Republican Bobby Franklin has sponsored proposed life begins at conception legislation, stating that it can use the Tenth Amendment to override Roe v. Wade and make abortion or miscarrying in an unauthorized fashion a felony. The lengthy legislation will make women apply for birth and death certificates each time they miscarry, and should they do it outside of the hospital or if one of the womb police suspect she has induced it, she can be investigated as a murderess.
A report of spontaneous fetal death for each spontaneous fetal death which occurs in
200 this state shall be filed with the local registrar of the county in which the delivery occurred
201 within 72 hours after such delivery in accordance with this Code section unless the place
202 of fetal death is unknown, in which case a fetal death certificate shall be filed in the county
203 in which the dead fetus was found within 72 hours after such occurrence. All induced
204 terminations of pregnancy shall be reported in the manner prescribed in Code Section
205 31-10-19. Preparation and filing of reports of spontaneous fetal death shall be as follows:
206 (1) When a dead fetus is delivered in an institution, the person in charge of the institution
207 or that person's designated representative shall prepare and file the report;
208 (2) When a dead fetus is delivered outside an institution, the physician in attendance at
209 or immediately after delivery shall prepare and file the report;
210 (3) When a spontaneous fetal death required to be reported by this Code section occurs
211 without medical attendance at or immediately after the delivery or when inquiry is
212 required by Article 2 of Chapter 16 of Title 45, the 'Georgia Death Investigation Act,' the
213 proper investigating official shall investigate the cause of fetal death and shall prepare
214 and file the report within 30 days; and
215 (4) When a spontaneous fetal death occurs in a moving conveyance and the fetus is first
216 removed from the conveyance in this state or when a dead fetus is found in this state and
217 the place of fetal death is unknown, the fetal death shall be reported in this state. The
218 place where the fetus was first removed from the conveyance or the dead fetus was found
219 shall be considered the place of fetal death
You may be wondering about circumstances; exceptions to the thou shalt not abort rules. Well, there are none. Every fertilized ova is considered a person with the same rights as any other citizen. It doesn't matter if you were raped or molested. It also doesn't matter if you have cancer and will die without treatment because cancer treatment will cause a miscarriage and what's the point of living if you'll be doing life for murdering something the size of a lentil. You are expected to carry the little bean to term or until you die.
There's also talk about birth defects. Well, if God wants a baby to be born without a brain or with all of its organs fused together, so be it. Yes, it will die within 5 minutes of birth and further traumatize a family that knew they were going to have a dead baby, but that's God's will. It's also God's will if a mentally disabled woman dies from an ectopic pregnancy that resulted from being raped by a relative because you can't kill that little zygote, but it can kill you.
Yes, it's Georgia, the State that has tried numerous times to establish religion, but if they have their way, every state will have no legal abortions and no contraception. Women will have no reproductive freedom, no sexual rights, and diminished privacy rights. Her liberty will no longer be hers, for if she aborts her rapist's baby, she'll serve 4 times as long as he will. Hell, if it's twins, she could get the death penalty. Her life and liberty matter less in the State of Georgia than something that weights less than a matchstick and she's most certainly less valuable than her male peers. She's a womb with a view on a world that is a mirror.
Geez, those Muslims you bitch about might just end up envying you. I mean they stole stoning rape victims from Deuteronomy 22, so maybe you can come up with even more innovative additions to the law to shut those bitches up. The Ayatollah will be sending you gift baskets full of oil and sweets and sweets made from oil.
The fact of the matter is that women have always sought termination of pregnancy, and Biblical preaching won't stop it. But banning abortion will kill women, I can assure you of that. Illegal abortions account for 25% of maternal deaths in Latin America, in Christian Uganda, it's at over 50%. Over 80 000 women, many with young children, die annually due to unsafe abortions.
Yes, I know Bobby Franklin has a degree in religion, but America was not founded as a Christian nation. Booby Franklin wants America to turn into something which it never was, and in doing so will tarnish the democracy that made America exceptional in the first place. He also wants to go back to a day when young girls were forced into loveless marriages due to unplanned pregnancy and then make it harder to leave an abusive bastard. If Bobby Franklin wants to belong to a patriarchal Pentecostal cult, that's his choice; but his freedom of religion does not give him the right to deny liberty to an entire gender.
