You miscarried? Prove it!

I read an article today that just put my into a fit or rage and tears!

A few years ago, I suffered the loss of a child. It was the most painful experience of my life. I still struggle today with it.

Today I learned that Georgia State Rep. Bobby Franklin introduced a bill in his state last week that, if enacted, would require proof that a miscarriage occurred naturally.

This is absolutely insane! A woman has enough to deal with physically and emotionally after a miscarriage. They must now face speculation that they intentionally harmed their unborn child.

Many women do not know why they miscarry, it can happen without warning or explanation. So now, if a woman can’t prove that her miscarriage–or spontaneous abortion–occurred without intervention, she could face felony charges.

State Rep. Franklin is basically putting these grieving women on trial!

Something has to be done. So I decided to look up some information on Franklin.
