This is why Republicans changed the rules of Congress to get Gorsuch and Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court: “This isn’t just “Handmaid’s Tale” speculation, either. Many states have already experimented with charging women for child abuse for drug use during pregnancy. In Montana, women are frequently HELD CAPTIVE DURING PREGNANCY for just this reason. Formalizing these efforts by declaring that embryos are the same as babies could drastically expand these efforts, moving it past just punishing women for drug and alcohol abuse and towards criminal investigations for any failure to follow medical advice during pregnancy.”
But lemme guess, feeding hungry newborns and kids will NOT be so mandatory.
