This powerful piece captures the angry sentiments of many of us quite nicely, regarding the proposal described:
This week the Georgia State legislature debated a bill in the House, that would make it necessary for a woman to carry a stillborn baby until she ‘naturally’ goes into labor just as, according to Representative Terry England, pregnant cows and pigs do.
I know it’s just one state senator, and I know he’s not representative of the U.S. But this should not be a debate in any state. Americans can do better than this. I’m not saying I expect better, because I’ve been given too many reasons not to. But I’m not lowering my standards, Americans! Let’s get our acts together, already.
