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]

Mary Pilcher-Cook was rated 0% by Kansas Association of School Boards.

And she's catholic, anti-union, pro-gun and death penalty, etc., etc, etc. She's a republican through and through.

Life as I know it now

The Handmaid's Tale seems less like fiction every day.

Life: She sure sounds like a winner. I'm surprised she's Catholic. Most of the Catholics I've known are gung ho about birth control and abortion and all that, but liberal on economic issues. Pilcher-Cook is the worst of both.

Jim: Maybe it was a documentary.

@ Jim, the GoOpers use it as an instruction manual. But but, there is no war on women according to them. I'll be over here being fitted for a full coverage burqa if anyone needs anything a sammich or shirts ironed, anything.

Jess: And there'll be no more uppity comments from the womenfolk after God's Own Party takes over the Senate later this year :)

These are just more of the same people who want to give Social Security numbers to fetuses, and who would like to legally call it 'murder' if people use contraceptives or have miscarriages. I don't feel like that is an exaggeration, because those people are out there... designing punitive legislation that forces their religion and their 'morals' on everyone.

Snave: You're right, I don't think you're exaggerating. It's impossible to caricature these people, because they're actually more twisted and wacko than anyone could possibly imagine.
