    I don't even know what to say to this. I can't believe it's 2010.

    it shouldn't really take until the third paragraph to realise that they are talking about deliberately induced miscarriage

    this terrifies and upsets me. as if i'm not scared enough of miscarriage! and i'm not even an advocate of abortion unless for medical/special circumstances... but this is just terrible :(

    that's what i was thinking.

    and how on earth are they going to judge whether something was deliberate or not?

    i mean... falling down the stairs and losing your child must be harrowing enough. and then being charged w/murder?! :stress:

    that's easy, they just ask if you are a mormon or not

    wow this is a retarded bill . I mean how will they prove if it was a accident miscarriage ? I mean I feel bad for women who will have real accidents and have to pay for it . I mean it gonna make women not call 911 when it happens and suffer heath issues because of it . God retarted Mormons in Utah

    Exactly, I think that's one of the biggest problems with it too. It really endangers women, who will probably now be terrified they're going to end up in jail when they miscarry. So I wonder how many of them now, WON'T seek proper medical care?

    i agree completely apart from the last comment.

    i dont think this bill was directly transcribed from the book of mormon.

    80% of utah's legislature are mormons, so they are kind of responsible

    What can I say the book of Mormon might be full of surprises , I saw a thing on America Most Wanted about this Mormon man that used a paddle to beat people . He was like some kind of minster who thought it was okie to marry 13 year olds because quot on quot "The Bible says its okie were married now thats what matters" . And Might I add he had like 14 brides who were all before the age 14 .

    He also was trying to bring his 1st wife back from the dead claiming he dose everything he dose's for her , an like held on to the dead body for like 20 years then he burned it an made one of his young brides eat the ashes .

    There was some horrible funny AMW things of like this old guy beating people with a paddle .

    South Park did a pretty good episode, where they sum up how idiotic Mormonism is.

    They do realise that 1 in 3 pregnancies miscarry anyway? Like, mostly before the woman even knows she's pregnant?

    2010 means nothing in utah. a place that is basically half mormon and believes the garden of eden was in missouri.

    dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.

    This is scary. Most women don't intentionally miscarriage so I wonder what will happen to an average woman who just loses her baby.
