This is a continuing topic from yesterday's American is a bad place. Well, as briefly mentioned in that one, it's pretty clear that America is a bad place for women.
Rennie Gibbs is accused of murder, but the crime she is alleged to have committed does not sound like an ordinary killing. Yet she faces life in prison in Mississippi over the death of her unborn child.It's a case of another unfortunate young woman who's problems could have easily been solved by lesbianism. When will society ever learn?
Gibbs became pregnant aged 15, but lost the baby in December 2006 in a stillbirth when she was 36 weeks into the pregnancy. When prosecutors discovered that she had a cocaine habit – though there is no evidence that drug abuse had anything to do with the baby's death – they charged her with the "depraved-heart murder" of her child, which carries a mandatory life sentence.
Gibbs is the first woman in Mississippi to be charged with murder relating to the loss of her unborn baby. But her case is by no means isolated. Across the US more and more prosecutions are being brought that seek to turn pregnant women into criminals.
It's only a matter of time before personhood amendments will effectively outlaw contraception and they're the hot new legislation this summer. So hey, maybe you better stock up on condoms now. At the very least maybe the pill or anything else that prevents fertilized eggs from implanting because hey, they are a full human being with all the rights according thereof in the eyes of the court these days.
Though maybe you'll only be good with all those birth control methods till the ONAN bill of 2014 awards full constitutional protection to individual sperms. Because if there's anything that you should take away from this story.. this story that happened when she miscarried FIVE YEARS AGO, it's that America is really pretty fucked in the head.
Or maybe you could do your part, ladies, and crush the patriarchy one menstrual period at a time. And soon, after every two months he'll have just enough genetic material to make up an entire person.
As you can see from this news article, the only legal miscarriage is the one you'll have in debtors prison. None of this Bourgeois bullshit. Clearly we just don't need feminism anymore. Not when the prosecutors are almost certainly actually convinced that women under this leadership isn't going anywhere. But hey, at least they can pin point you to the scene of the crime.
In fact, South Carolina was one of the first states to introduce such a fatal homicide law. Now national advocates for pregnant Women have found only one case of a South Carolina man who assaulted the pregnant woman having been charged under it terms, and his conviction was eventually overturned. Yet the group estimates there have been up to 300-500 women arrested for their actions
It's not so surprising that at least 38 to 50 states across America have introduced fetal homicide laws that were intended to protect pregnant Women and their unborn children from violent attacks by third parties - usually abusive male partners. But then look how it is being used. Clearly the prosecutors have some sort of personal bite on to this one.
It's rather sad when the reality of things is simply this:
-Get an abortion? Charged with murder!
-Give birth to a stillborn? Charged with murder!
-Kill a bunch of children?! What the fuck, are you crazy?
Oh, just another day in the office for Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack H. Obama. Because what else are you going to do? Sure you can blame it on sorcerers. And as if you didn't have enough stores to warrant the drive out there and found something but I'm not at liberty the office code.
Pregnant Iowa Woman Arrested for Falling DownThere's more to the story, which is really saying a lot about the sad state of our nation, but my favorite part about the story was that she got released only because she was in the second trimester, not the third.
Life can't get much worse for Christine Taylor. After an upsetting phone conversation with her estranged husband, Ms. Taylor became light-headed and fell down a flight of stairs in her home. Paramedics rushed to the scene and ultimately declared her healthy. However, since she was pregnant with her third child at the time, Taylor thought it would be best to be seen at the local ER to make sure her fetus was unharmed.
That's when things got really bad and really crazy. Alone, distraught, and frightened, Taylor confided in the nurse treating her that she hadn't always been sure she'd wanted this baby, now that she was single and unemployed. She'd considered both adoption and abortion before ultimately deciding to keep the child. The nurse then summoned a doctor, who questioned her further about her thoughts on ending the pregnancy. Next thing Taylor knew, she was being arrested for attempted feticide. Apparently the nurse and doctor thought that Taylor threw herself down the stairs on purpose.According to Iowa state law, attempted Feticide is an trying "to intentionally terminate a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person,
So given all the lack of proposed legislation to outlaw female sterility procedures, I'm left to believe that creating ever more tenuous murder convictions as being a little barrack IPA to finish you off if there is anything left.
