The real agenda of "pro-lifers"

I once used this as a hypothetical of what might occur if "pro-lifers" get their way, and now it's apparently real. From Pandagon, a woman in Pittsburgh has been charged with concealing the death of a child for not seeking medical treatment for a miscarriage (she was about 4 months along when the miscarriage occurred). The ME determined that the fetus died of natural causes.

The statute involved here requires concealment "so that it may not come to light, whether it was born dead or alive or whether it [the child] was murdered or not." Note the use of the pronoun "it." The statute clearly requires a birth. Generally speaking, a miscarriage is not considered a birth.

This is not about protection of life, it is about control of women, period.
