Another woman charged with murder. She tried to kill herself while pregnant. She survived. The baby was delivered, and then did not survive.

Woman is arrested for falling down the stairs while pregnant and other horror stories.

Here's the link: http://colorlines.com/archives/2011/02/nine_reasons_to_hate_anti-abortion_billboards_that_target_black_women--and_one_reason_to_feel_the_lo.html

I'm not really sure what else to say other than this: if the most dangerous place for an zygote-African-American is in fact in the womb, I wonder if the same people who put up this ad supported Congress's recent decision to defund a place to get pre-natal care. Oh wait, the only "dangers" they care about are the woman's choice.

Death penalty for exercising Constitutional rights...and beyond

Recently I became outraged by Representative Bobby Franklin's attempts to make miscarriages punishable by death. You can read all about it here. Though a small, secret part of me is happy because I believe, or fervently hope, that this will be the death knell of the anti-choice movement. Franklin's idiotic bill takes anti-abortion to its logical extreme. If abortion is murder, then a miscarriage is manslaughter. And since women may conceive and miscarry without knowing it, every woman must be examined every month to be sure she did not murder a zygote American unknowingly. It is my hope that rational minded people will see this, and by extension the entire anti-abortion movement, as the farce that they are.
