The war on women who dare to have sex continues.
It gets worse. Franklin wants to create a Uterus Police to investigate miscarriages, and requires that any time a miscarriage occurs, whether in a hospital or without medical assistance, it must be reported and a fetal death certificate issued. If the cause of death is unknown, it must be investigated. If the woman can’t tell how it happened, than those Uterus Police can ask family members and friends how it happened. Hospitals are required to keep records of anyone who has a spontaneous abortion and report it. Yup, we’ve been waiting for someone to suggest this–and Franklin has.
The complete bill is here for your bathroom reading.
This isn’t the first WTF moment for Bobby Franklin. He’s also lobbied to have rape “victims” referred to as rape “accusers”. He has equated the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell to letting ‘unrepentant’ drug dealers in the military. Oh and he wants to do away with driver’s licenses because there’s nothing about needing one to drive a car in the Constitution.
