New Utah Law Would Make Miscarriage a Crime

This is troubling and disturbing to say the least.  Actually, I’m having a difficult time containing my anger for the Utah politicians that introduced this bill:

The bill passed Utah’s state legislature last Thursday and still needs final approval by the governor, but it continues to gain attention this week for its unusually restrictive language. It doesn’t address legal abortion, but allows punishment up to life in prison for an “intentional, knowing, or reckless act” that leads to a miscarriage or abortion without a doctor’s supervision.

So again, if a woman has a miscarriage she could face up to a lifetime in jail.
