It seems a democratic politition is trying to make it a law in PA.  I think the goal is to cut down on 'back-alley' abortions, or women hurting themselves in desperation.  Then again, the sentence is a fine or up to a year in prison!  Isn't that a little much? Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Should women who don`t check into a hospital or report to the police after a miscarriage be punished by law?

Well, maybe to prevent abortions but why is it anyone's business if they've had a kid die?

What a horrible idea! What vicious little Nazi came up with this one?

What Brunnen_G said. This is absolutely ridiculous.

Totally huh?!

This is plain nuts.

You have to register it as a death of a life if the pregnancy goes past a certain time. It is law in some countries to do so. There is a woman up for a murder charge here in Ireland because she didn't register her miscarriage.

But that's just stupid, if the baby is born dead then it's already dead, that's not murder.

Yep I know that. The point I was making is that asking a mother to register the death of a baby is not a 'nazi' idea as somebody posted above. It's common practice in some countries and I think it's justified. If they weren't registered then it would be more likely that women would carry out their own abortions and nobody would be none the wiser

Where does common sense fail so badly that legislation has to intervene in people doing harm to themselves? This is so retarded.

If somebody kills herself with a coathanger, so be it. They have the Darwin Award they always wanted, and now everybody else can go grieve in a corner if they want to. Laws have no place here whatsoever, unless we want inept people having kids.

I think they'd show up to hospital as a matter of course, but it shouldn't be absolutely required of them. And why on earth do the police need to know about it. As if they haven't got enough to do.

I don't think it was a Democrat, and I don't think it was Pennsylvania, unless there are two cases of this same exact thing...I remember reading several articles about Republican John Cosgrove a Representative in the Virginia House of Representatives proposing a law that if a woman didn't report a miscarriage within 12 hours she could be charged with a misdemeanor.

Personally, I think the idea that a woman should have to report her miscarriage to authorities is ridiculous. I am absolutely against this.

Also, wat in the world does the "I am pro-life" picture have to do with this...?

burnteffigy is right. i got the story wrong. it is a republican and it is in VA. sorry about the confusion, everyone . if someone knows how i can change the story info, let me know.

I don't think they should be.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 11:15:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with Brunnen G
what a right wing naziish idea this is
oh this guy Republican John cosgrove
well i am sure he means well
besides the removing womens rights part

Which total moronic MALE asswipe came up with this idea?! URGH!
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 9:48:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
It should depend on the age of the fetus...a woman should really get a D&C done after a miscarriage, though.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 9:56:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
if the baby dies inside u shouldnt you get it removed before it does any damage to you??? it wouldnt be classed as murder or anything cos it wasnt done intentionally! isnt the meaning of miscarriage - natural abortion, which means that something wasnt right with the baby and therefore it was for the best that the baby died anyway???
they shouldnt really be punished... it is already a punishment that they lost the baby and they may not be in a sound state of mind after the trauma to report it anyway!
