Georgia state rep. Bobby Franklin Wants to Criminalize Unauthorized Vaginal Bleeding

(ALTERNET)   Georgia state rep. Bobby Franklin, R-Marietta, proposed a law that would require rape and sexual assault victims — but not the victims of any other crimes — to be called “accusers” unless there was a conviction in their cases.

Then Franklin introduced a bill that would do away with drivers’ licenses, arguing that they “are a throw back to oppressive times.” As CBS reported:

In his bill, Franklin states, “free people have a common law and constitutional right to travel on the roads and highways that are provided by their government for that purpose. Licensing of drivers cannot be required of free people, because taking on the restrictions of a license requires the surrender of an inalienable right.”

(More details on both measures here.)

Now Lindsay Beyerstein brings us word of Franklin’s latest:

A Georgia Representative has introduced a bill to investigate all unsupervised miscarriages as crime scenes. Don’t believe me? Here’s the relevant language from HB 1, downloadable from legislature’s website:

When a spontaneous fetal death required to be reported by this Code section occurs without medical attendance at or immediately after the delivery or when inquiry is required by Article 2 of Chapter 16 of Title 45, the ‘Georgia Death Investigation Act,’ the proper investigating official shall investigate the cause of fetal death and shall prepare and file the report within 30 days[…]

Beyerstein adds that the bill “is radical even by the standards of people who think fertilized ova are people.”

One has to conclude that Bobby Franklin doesn’t need a challenger so much as a decent shrink.
