Are we preparing to send women to jail for spontaneous abortion?
“In the criminal justice system, miscarriages and crimes against the unborn are considered especially heinous. In police departments across the nation, the dedicated detectives who investigate these felonies are the overworked and harried Maternity Division.”
A pregnant woman was shot in the stomach. She was indicted in her baby’s death with the claim she caused the argument which got her shot by ANOTHER person with a gun.
No, I am not making this up. Read it for yourself:
A pregnant woman shot in the stomach is indicted in her unborn child's death
Once again, Alabama is at the forefront of a nationwide debate over the rights of pregnant women.
“A Jefferson County grand jury indicted Marshae Jones, 27, based on her alleged role in starting a fight that led to the gunfire, CNN affiliate WBMA reported.”
How does this even make sense? The woman was shot by someone else. She didn’t shoot herself. She couldn’t cause the person who shot her TO shoot her. Therefore she cannot be to blame for the loss of her child and therefore there is no criminal act for her to be blamed for. What is wrong with white people in Alabama?
What is the game? No white legislator in Alabama gives a good-goddamn about that Black woman or her child. Is this woman a test subject for legislation they can then turn on White people in the future to promote the preservation of the White race? Remember these fourteen words?
“We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
Yeah. These guys. You knew it had nothing good associated with it, right?
The slogan was coined by David Lane, a member of the white supremacist terrorist group known as The Order (Lane died in prison in 2007). The term reflects the primary white supremacist world-view in the late 20th and early 21st centuries: that unless immediate action is taken, the white race is doomed to extinction by an alleged “rising tide of color” purportedly controlled and manipulated by Jews.
Because of its widespread popularity, white supremacists reference this slogan constantly, in its full form as well as in abbreviated versions such as “14 Words”, “Fourteen Words,” or simply the number “14.”
- Will this mean women who are pregnant can’t DO anything anymore if it could result in miscarriage and her possible punishment?
- What about those women who miscarry spontaneously, which happens more often than you’d think?
- Will there need to be an investigation into every miscarriage taking place across the nation?
- Will we have to create a new department of the police department?
Will Police Departments get a Maternity Division, an elite series of detectives trained to recognize when women spontaneously abort or when they engage in an activity like: shopping, cleaning, sweeping, childcare, laundry, cooking, driving, skeet shooting, or a host of other activities which could, but not necessarily cause, spontaneous abortion in early pregnancy?
Don’t pregnant women have enough to worry about from getting good neonatal care to the challenges of Preeclampsia?
Should they have to go into a witness protection program if they spontaneously abort through no fault of their own. This look suspiciously like another page in the Handmaid’s Tale, where women and the control of their bodies, is no longer in their hands.
This should make you crazy angry and you need to start recognizing all of the laws which affect women taking place all over the country, particularly where their reproductive rights are concerned. If there was ever a time to champion a cause, this one is worthy.
No woman should fear going to jail because she gets angry and spontaneously aborts, through no fault of her own.
Criminalizing pregnancy or the accidental/spontaneous abortion by a woman which results in a criminal investigation of the same should NOT be an aspect of the criminal justice system.
Stop such draconian laws at the source. Find your local city, state and federal officers and let them know how you feel.
These laws are both immoral and unconstitutional and portend an oppressive reproduction system where women will, as usual, bear the burden of a male-oriented justice system, designed to disenfranchise and criminalize pregnant women.
This is insanity, sheer insanity.
