    The Rep. won't be happy until all us women are barefoot and pregnant.  I guess if they can't just dump Roe, they'll undermine women's rights wherever they can.  

    In the last 4 years, I've 5 miscarriages and only saw the dr. twice.  The other 3 times, I didn't bother calling the dr. until 2 days later.  According to this, that would put me in jail.  But how are they enforcing this?  Will VA women be forced to have pregnancy tests done every month?  Will there be an equivalent of the blood stained sheets on the wedding night test?

    I'm posting this link on my birth clubs, too.  There are women that live in VA there.

    Good God, this is so dumb.  In Los Angeles, to stop people from throwing their babies away, they implemented safe drops.  Not this draconian law.  Does Rep. Cosgrove really believe that people are this dumb?  If, he's not lying in his email, then removing this line or at least re-wording it to where it after, say 20 gestational weeks, shouldn't be an issue.  Of course, we live in this world.  I wouldn't put it past any Rep. to be lying through his/her teeth.
