Stumped Anti-Abortionists Strike Back

Remember this quaint meme and video from sometime last week where anti-abortion protesters had no blessed clue what to do with “criminal” women who would seek and complete illegal abortions?

Well, Utah has decided to try to fill this important void in outlawing illegal abortion practices — women may become living crime scenes:

The Utah House of Representatives will hear a controversial proposal that could hold physicians responsible for homicide if they perform abortions deemed illegal by the state.

Under current state law, abortion is allowed only in cases of rape or incest, if the fetus cannot survive outside the womb or is unlikely to survive, or to save the mother’s life or preserve her health.

Abortions that don’t meet any of those standards can result in third-degree felony charges.

If you live in Utah or you want to send some strongly-worded letters to the Democrats in their House of Representatives about this bill, here’s the UT House website.  Tell these representatives that doctors protecting women’s health is not an air quotation myth.

I’ll update this entry with more coverage as I find it, after the jump…
