Utah is poised to criminalize miscarriage (thanks, novapsyche)

Utah House and Senate pass bill that would criminalize miscarriage -- "A bill passed by the House and Senate in Utah this week could make it a crime to have a miscarriage, with penalties up to life in prison."

HB0012 -- text of the bill

In Utah, Miscarriage = Criminal Homicide -- article at Amplify

When Miscarriages Are a Crime... -- article at Slog, Seattle's Only Newspaper

If you live in Utah, please contact your governor, who is the only person standing between this bill and reality.
