The Republican Party's attack on women's reproductive rights has put the nation on a terrifying path

In the United States, the GOP have embraced the American "Christian" version of fundamentalist Islamic law which dictates that women are the property of men and their principal purpose for existence is reproduction. (Photo illustration: Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images)

The GOP’s Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice is on its way.

During Mike Pence’s first year as governor of Indiana, his state put a young woman in prison for having a miscarriage, alleging that she’d taken an abortion-causing drug. Purvi Pateldidn’t have a trace of such a drug in her system, but Pence’s state sentenced her to 20 years in prison anyway. Just a few years earlier, Indiana had also held Bei Bei Shuai for 435 days in the brutal maximum security Marion County prison, facing 45 years to life for trying to kill herself and, in the process, causing the death of her 33-week fetus.

Utah charged 28-year-old Melissa Ann Rowland with murder because she refused a C-section, preferring vaginal birth for her twins, and one of them died. Sixteen-year-old Rennie Gibbswas charged by the state of Mississippi with “depraved heart murder” when her baby was born dead because his umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck: her crime was that she had cocaine in her bloodstream, according to prosecutors. Angela Carder was ordered to have a C-section to deliver her baby before she died of cancer; both she and the baby died from the procedure.

These cases have exploded in recent years, as the GOP and the nation’s law enforcement system have embraced the American “Christian” version of fundamentalist Islamic law which dictates that women are the property of men and their principal purpose for existence is reproduction.

Carder case, the state "took" the only reason she had to live...a little longer...

Oh, and this case is really confounding.  I wouldn't be surprised if you CANNOT FIND an OB soon with these issues and new laws we are but a "heartbeat" away from charging OBs with murder every other day .
