I don’t find ‘miscarry’ in the article, unless the headline writer is playing some kind of word game. If you are supporting a controversial issue, it’s really more effective to maintain the semantic highground.

re: #1 Decatur Deb

I don’t think the article makes it at all clear, but I think what the author is getting at is that if you are miscarrying and go to the doctor, s/he may not be permitted to do anything other than try to save the pregnancy until the waiting period is over. “Emergency” is poorly defined so doctors will hesitate to act out of fear of prosecution. That will not help, and will sometimes harm the woman.

Again, I don’t understand why the med profession (AMA and schools) aren’t screaming their heads off.

from the article:

Before the passage of the budget, a number of OB-GYNs protested this provision. In the past, they’ve testified that it would make them hesitate before treating women. This is consciously modeled after the Irish law that resulted in the death of Savita Halappanavar.

“Number of”. Try to get a law that says how to set a bone, and watch the whole professional apparatus freak.

It appears that the GOP is on a mission to push Hillary’s vote total with single women in the ‘16 presidential election as close to 100% as possible.

It really is fascinating. They’re going all-in on alienating the largest voting bloc in the country.

The law makes provision for miscarriage: “Section 2919.16(K) spells out that the conditions allowing for immediate abortion: includes pre-eclampsia, inevitable abortion….”

An inevitable abortion is a miscarriage that is in process or hasn’t happened yet but will.

What I don’t see on the list is ectopic pregnancies or molar pregnancies. The first can be acutely life-threatening, the second should be dealt with ASAP as it risks the mother’s life with no probability of a viable fetus.

The article and law are both badly written.

Sooner or later a woman in the US will die while doctors are trying obey evil laws such as these. When that happens every person who voted in favor of them, and the governor who signed off on them, should all stand trial for premeditated murder. When convicted they should be sentenced to life without parole, because execution is far too merciful for them.

In that regard, I wish them luck, but not at the expense of the women who will suffer the consequence of these hideous laws in the meantime.

Because of the compensation rates and expense of malpractice for OB/GYNs, they’re at the low end of the compensation scale, which means they’re on the lower end of the political power among other doctors, too.
