Dem Majority in Tennessee, thank you!

14 Feb

A Tennessee Legislator has proposed requiring death certificates for “aborted fetuses” in his state.

While this bill is unlikely to pass – attributable to the Democratic Majority in the Tennesse House – it is still utterly appalling. The idea of issuing death certificates for abortions is being widely covered, which just in itself is going to cause fear among women who may be grappling with the decision of whether or not to abort.

The proposer, Rep. Stacey Campfield (R-Ten), says this will be a great means of tracking the number of abortions performed in his state, even though the number is already being tracked, without death certificates.

Part of the proposal calls for the inclusion of the social security number of the woman who had the operation on the death certificate, even though for privacy concerns, this is illegal. Arg.

Another instance of a white man making decisions for me. Yuck.

    Good God! You would think that legislators would have more important things to do than sit around thinking of new and creative ways of limiting American (women’s) freedom. Although Republicans preach about smaller government (which I am all for), they seemingly want it to be just small enough to fit inside a woman’s womb — a new kind of rape, so to speak.
