Georgia Lawmaker Pursues Taliban Justice for Women
Here it is: any woman who endures a miscarriage in Georgia would have the burden of proof to demonstrate the the miscarriage happened naturally and was not the result of human intervention. Even if one accepts the strictest prohibitions against abortion,this is un-American and heavy handed. Our entire legal system is based on "innocent until proven guilty."
While it's difficult to imagine such a mean-spirited law could pass and surely it would not survive court challenges, the very notion of it is a dreadful slap against American freedom and that women are equal citizens worthy of the full rights of citizenship.
Georgia residents must oppose this with all due fury.
