15-Year-Old Girl Faces Life in Prison for a Miscarriage? Why Conservatives Are Criminalizing Pregnant Women

Not only is this disturbing as a women's rights issue but it's disturbing from a "trying minors as adults" issue and treating those with addiction as criminals.  Will they do the same when a woman with diabetes miscarries due to her illness as well?  Maybe we should just throw in witchcraft and we can claim with pride that we've reverted to 1600's standards.
If they sink they're innocent? =)

How the hell did such a crazy law get passed?? And Gibbs is not even a woman herself, she is a kid herself!

 

And honestly, cocaine habit or not, women do not become vessels for other people when they are pregnant, they are still persons!

 

And I agree with Paul, trying minors as adults is a HUGE problem with the justice system in the US. Let's remind ourselves that this kind of crazy shit could not happen anywhere else in the world, except in some backwards theocracy.

From that same article:

 

Bei Bei Shuai, 34, has spent the past three months in a prison cell in Indianapolis charged with murdering her baby. On 23 December she tried to commit suicide by taking rat poison after her boyfriend abandoned her.

 

Shuai was rushed to hospital and survived, but she was 33 weeks pregnant and her baby, to whom she gave birth a week after the suicide attempt and whom she called Angel, died after four days. In March Shuai was charged with murder and attempted foeticide and she has been in custody since without the offer of bail.

 

This is what we do in this country to people who obviously are in big distress and need help: throw them in jail. WTF??

Trying kids as adults and capital punishment are two very screwed up actions; hate them both. 

 

Conservatives that I know hate it when we look at other countries and how they do things, this is America dammit and we do what we want! So what they don't jail their kids, we do and we love it!

That's why I don't understand why conservatives hate places like Iran, Afghanistan, etc., so much. They would feel completely at home in theocracies.

1. You'd have to prove the miscarriage happened as a result of Drug use.

2. It would be Reckless Homicide (similar to what a drunk driver gets for killing someone under the influence) I do believe and not Murder. 15-25 years, Not Life.

3. She needs rehab not prison.

4. Where are her parents? Wouldn't it be negligence on their part not hers, anyway, seeing as shes underage?
