It’s time for another episode of Republican Outreach, this time in New Mexico.
Should a recently introduced bill in New Mexico become law, rape victims will be required to carry their pregnancies to term during their sexual assault trials or face charges of “tampering with evidence.”
Under HB 206, if a woman ended her pregnancy after being raped, both she and her doctor would be charged with a felony punishable by up to 3 years in state prison.
I can’t fathom this actually becoming law, but let it be known that someone actually thought it was a good idea. And in this case that someone is Rep. Cathrynn Brown (R).
The outreach to women continues.
