Utah passes law criminalizing miscarriages.

As if things weren't bad enough these days, states like Utah have been working hard at rolling back women's rights and leaving them vulnerable to criminal prosecution if they miscarry, and the state thinks it was even remotely intentional.

H.B. 462 the revised vision of the bill was signed into law today by Utah Governor Herbert. This bill, although slightly altered to remove the term "reckless", continues to pose a serious threat to the safety and rights of women in Utah.

I strongly urge you to contact women's rights advocacy groups such as NOW, as well as The ACLU of Utah and The Planned Parenthood action Council to help support their fight in any way you can.

While you're at it, let Utah know that you oppose their heinous attack on women by contacting the Governor At his Utah office, or e-mail through his webpage.
