Regarding Bobby Franklin’s “miscarriage bill” in Georgia, a reader and M.D. emails:
Since 30-90 percent of fertilized eggs spontaneously abort, seems, according to Franklin, every woman should be required to track their menstrual cycle, and if there is a variance, they need to account for it to authorities, such that a spontaneous abortion can be investigated to determine if somehow the woman was responsible for the death of a human being.
The audacity and misogyny of these wingnuts is almost too staggering to comprehend. One thing is for sure: they can’t possibly call themselves “small government Republicans.”
