Welcome to Kansas: Have a Miscarriage, Go To Prison
Let's see if I've got this straight now: Conservatives hate Obamacare because they don't want a bunch of government bureaucrats coming between a doctor and his/her patient. But conservatives are famous for holding two or more contradictory beliefs at the same time, with absolutely no awareness that they're contradicting themselves. This explains a new law wending its way through the Kansas legislature that will require doctors to report any and all of their patients' miscarriages to the state health department.
What happened to Freedom? Limited government? The sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship? [see previous paragraph]
This attempt to bring back the Spanish Inquisition is being done through an amendment to HB 2613. HB 2613 was originally written for the sole purpose of updating the procedure for issuing a birth certificate when a baby is stillborn. The Salem Witch Trial amendment was introduced by state Senator Mary Pilcher-Cook (R—Fetus-Humper).
The legislator who introduced the original bill, Rep. John Doll (R), is no longer supporting his own legislation because of this amendment:
“I can’t support the bill as it was amended. I think it waters it down and makes it into a political statement. I wanted a bill to help give closure to some families — I didn’t want it to have anything to do with pro-life or pro-choice issues.”
Mary Pilcher-Cook has a long history of Bible-humping and fetus-worshiping. She's previously tried to eliminate exceptions for rape and incest in Kansas' abortion law, and to establish a sales tax on abortion procedures.
Gee, I thought taxes were job-killers, you know, strangling the economy and all that. Oh, that's right. [Again, refer to the first paragraph]
