Handmaid’s Tale?

Via Atrios.

This is hard to believe, but not impossible, especially since the state that is considering a law requiring women to report “fetal death” to police is Virginia. It’s called HB1677.


Report of fetal death by mother; penalty.
Provides that when a fetal death occurs without medical attendance, it shall be the woman’s responsibility to report the death to the proper law-enforcement agency within 12 hours of the delivery. Violation of this section shall be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Welcome to the Republic of Gilead, folks, a/k/a W’s America.
