Tennessee Arrests First Mother Under Its New Pregnancy Criminalization Law

Today in: "Lawmakers hate women and only want them to be fetus incubators" Tennessee arrested a women days after the birth of her child and charged her with assault for testing positive for meth.

To quote one of the opponents of the law this woman is being charged under:

"This view of pregnant women essentially means that as soon as you're carrying a fertilized egg, you've lost your medical privacy and your right to make medical decisions," Paltrow pointed out. "But all matters concerning pregnancy are health care matters. Pregnancy, like other health issues, should be addressed through the public health system and not through the criminal punishment system or the civil child welfare system."


The US is becoming more and more of a scary place as right wing assholes assert their control over the political process.
