Miscarriage as Murder?
I was reading an article on the World Socialist Web Site on how an increasing number of states are charging miscarriages as crimes. The charges go as far accusing the mothers of murder. This saddens and angers me. Isn't already enough that these women have to deal with the emotional and psychological pain of miscarriage?! These lawmakers' sense of justice and logic are completely derailed! It is such an injustice that women are under attack whether we choose not to carry a pregnancy to term or whether it happens naturally.
