This is what I was on about.
Over in Mississippi, as in several other backwater states, women who suffer miscarriages and stillbirths while they are using drugs have been and are being charged with manslaughter.
That's a real danger that hasn't gone away -- and if Conservatives have their way, it's a danger that will increase. Mississippi wants a law that will make the fertilized egg a legal person, so that every miscarriage will become a crime scene, every woman who loses a pregnancy a suspect.
Or, well, you know: every poor woman, every brown woman. I don't imagine any of the law-makers women will have to worry much.
