Ladies, ladies, stop your hysterical caterwauling in that shrill way you do that you do! It is okay that a Republican lawmaker in New Mexico has introduced you to carry your Rape Baby to term “to use the fetus as evidence” (carrying a sentence of up to three years!) in your raper’s trial! It is okay because the lawmaker in question is a woman.
House Bill 206, introduced by state Rep. Cathrynn Brown (R), would charge a rape victim who ended her pregnancy with a third-degree felony for “tampering with evidence.”
“Tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion, of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime,” the bill says.
It’s such a fine line between clever and stupid!
