ohh boy....

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

She's labelling a baby 'evidence'!!!! :hmm:
And what happens to the 'evidence' after a trial?

I believe her explanation behind the bill was to deter forced abortions on the part of the perpetrators of rape or incest - forcing the daughter you raped to get an abortion to destroy evidence for example.

Does that change anyone's mind about this?  Is this a veiled attack on abortion rights or simply a very poorly conceived piece of legislation?

UPDATE: 12:25 p.m. -- Brown said in a statement Thursday that she introduced the bill with the goal of punishing the person who commits incest or rape and then procures or facilitates an abortion to destroy the evidence of the crime.
“New Mexico needs to strengthen its laws to deter sex offenders,” said Brown. “By adding this law in New Mexico, we can help to protect women across our state.”

Leave it to a lawyer to focus on one tiny detail of a case, ignoring all other implications.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

And folk accuse the NRA of an all-or-nothing approach to guns - the same can be said about the pro-abortion folks.

A New Mexico state legislator is under fire for a proposal critics say could lead to felony charges against rape victims seeking an abortion, but the legislator maintains the measure is being misrepresented.

Rep. Cathrynn Brown, a Republican from Carlsbad, said Thursday she will revise the bill, which she said was intended to target perpetrators of rape or incest who try to cover their tracks by forcing their victims to have abortions.

The bill's language states that the crime "shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime."

Although the clause regarding intent would seem to preclude rape victims from being charged, several critics read the bill as possibly including them. Brown said she will clarify the language to remove any ambiguity.

New Mexico's Democratic Party chairman calls it an "atrocious piece of legislation."

Brown is an attorney who sits on the state Legislature's Judiciary Committee. She was not immediately available when contacted Thursday by FoxNews.com.

I don't get it. Can't they run DNA testing on the aborted fetus as evidence of the crime?

It seems having the victim of a sexual assault carry an unwanted and unplanned baby to term, then give birth is ,IMO, just down right cruel. It seems once again the victim is the one being punished.

With idiots like lawyer Brown in power, its no wonder our judicial system is so screwed up.

I'm not sure about this, but aren't medical personnel supposed to report violence crimes to the police? Like if they are supposed to report when they suspect dad is smacking the crap out of a kid or starving them, wouldn't rape and forced abortion count like that?

Violence against minors is supposed to be reported, .Rape of an adult ,which would be covered under this ,not necessarily .
