Criminalization of pregnancy in US
This is just so awful.
Hundreds of women have been arrested, convicted, jailed, detained in mental institutions or forced to endure medical procedures as a result of the "criminalization of pregnancy" over the last four decades, a new report has found.
The report, which will appear in the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law, found that women were denied a wide range of basic human rights, including the right to life, liberty, equal protection and due process of law "based solely on their pregnancy status".
It found a wide range of cases in which pregnant women were arrested and detained not only if they ended a pregnancy or expressed an intention to end a pregnancy, but also after suffering unintentional pregnancy loss....
The war on women continues.
FYI - THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GUN CONTROL.
