Of Course There’s No Republican War On Women – ‘Tennessee Is About To Turn Pregnant Women Into Suspected Criminals’
Now remember…..this is the teabagger Republican Party that wants ‘small’ Government. They want Government ‘out of your life’…..unless your a woman.
‘Tennessee is poised to become the first state in the country to subject women to criminal assault charges if they use drugs during their pregnancy’.
‘Last week, both chambers of the state legislature passed Senate Bill 1391, which would ultimately allow the state to scrutinize miscarriages, stillbirths, and birth defects to try to determine if drugs played a role’.
‘Farah Diaz-Tello, a lawyer with the National Advocates for Pregnant Women’ :
“The law is so broad that it could lead to charges against a woman who drives recklessly, gets in an accident, and then loses pregnancy. It could also be used against women who try to self-induce abortions,” Diaz-Tello told the Daily Beast. “She becomes a criminal due to unlawful pregnancy loss.”
