God is criminally liable for abortions

Rep. Bobby Franklin of Georgia wants to hold women criminally responsible for miscarriages if they are unable to prove there was no human causation.

Under Rep. Franklin’s bill, HB 1, women who miscarry could become felons if they cannot prove that there was “no human involvement whatsoever in the causation” of their miscarriage. There is no clarification of what “human involvement” means, and this is hugely problematic as medical doctors do not know exactly what causes miscarriages. Miscarriages are estimated to terminate up to a quarter of all pregnancies and the Mayo Clinic says that “the actual number is probably much higher because many miscarriages occur so early in pregnancy that a woman doesn’t even know she’s pregnant. Most miscarriages occur because the fetus isn’t developing normally.

As one may easily guess, Franklin is a religious nutbag. So if we take his buggered perspective on reality, all these fetuses that are getting aborted naturally the fault of God. Thus, under his bill, God is a baby murdering fiend, responsible for more baby deaths than any human. Ever.

So I have to cheer on Franklin’s attempt to take down the most evil character that has ever existed in all of fiction. Sometimes symbolic justice is important. Go Franklin!

  1. Jesus, surely that must be a joke? Could someone actually be that nuts and hold a position of power? It’s well known that miscarriages, often called “spontaneous abortions” (at least that’s what we were told had happened to our first child at 20 weeks) occur naturally and doctors are not sure why they happen. But this wank-stain wants to hold someone accountable, and put them to death.

  2. I’m not sure how you got to God being liable here, but there is one major problem with the bill.

    Presumption of guilt. Here the accused would have to prove there was no human involvement? No, no, the state must prove there was human involvement.

  3. I explained how God is liable. You can review the post if you want to find out.

  4. The bill wont pass….but sure has us taken our eyes off the real problems we face. I’m kind of glad this jerk presented such a bill……..it polarizes the sane from the insane…that’s always good … most of us are sane….most of the time….

  5. I see what you meant by God being liable, just not criminally liable. By definition Gods involvement wouldn’t be human involvement which the bill seeks to criminalize.

    But again the problem I see isn’t what the bill seeks to do but how it seeks to do it. You might agree or not with the aim of punishing mothers who are careless with their pregnancy, doesn’t really matter.

    The big problem is the presumption of guilt. Essentially being attaindered by the legislature if you can’t prove that it wasn’t your fault.

    Even if you admit to something the state still has to prove your guilt. By the laws of most states and the federal government even a confession doesn’t prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, you did something.

  6. …….”punishing mothers who are careless with their pregnancies”?????

    Conception is an involuntary biological function when the sperm inseminates the egg and human will has no power to prevent it unless artificial means are taken to prevent it either before or after conception.

    So you might want to punish women who do not take these artificial means of prevention??? I guess one who agrees with punishing women who have careless pregnancies are all for preventing pregnancy before conception but not after it.

    It’s a ridiculous statement to allow to agree or disagree with this fact. It does matter. It matters because we have crazies out there like Rep, Franklin feeding on statements like this who do agree with punishing women.

    Shall we then allow for those in agreement that pre-prevention ( birth control) and post prevention (abortion) be mandatory procedures for careless women? Or just pre- prevention as Rep Franklin demands?

    I agree with most of your previous post but this line about careless women could not escape my attention.

  7. Well, Biblegod is a well-known genocidal deity. His acts of violence and depravity have been displayed for hundreds of years in various translations of their so-called ‘holy’ text. So, it stands to reason that we need to bring Him to justice.

  8. I wasn’t talking about the getting pregnant part.

  9. I think Rep. Franklin’s mother should be held criminally liable for not drowning him in the bathtub when she had a chance.
