15-Year-Old Girl Faces Life for Miscarriage

 

15-year-old Rennie Gibbs is charged with murder and faces life in prison for a miscarriage.

Prosecutors claim a cocaine habit is the reason for the baby´s death even though there is no evidence that support drug abuse was the cause the unborn child´s death.

Rennie Gibbs is just one of many women that are facing criminal charges in the U.S. on miscarriage laws.

upon investigating there is some false statements made in town papers favored by prosecutors .. anyhow, one has to wonder if a trend will happen with guys that might make false claims against an ex-girlfriend, I suppose be leery of conversations that might be recorded

  Grrrr...  
 
@Darkwave
Close, sorta =P ... Mississippi... and Alabama and Indiana are 2 other states they list, I see offhand, doing this kinda crap... and probably more.

@article

Using Laws that got put on the books, to protect women from abusive men who would do things like Punch them in the stomach to "get rid of the problem they caused"...

Gets ~twisted~ by these pieces of garbage that are probably just tryin to score brownie points for their version of "God", adding additional trauma on a person likely already traumatized by the miscarriage.

Additionally people with drug problems often have a long history of living with poverty, hopelessness, mental illness, domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, or some combination there of... and while I don´t make excuses for them, and don´t let those in my care use those problems as excuses, either... but they are still a Factor, and make it Harder to fix the problems they have...

and instead of getting Help, they´re getting More screwed over?

Worse. Screwed over by a system filled with people that think its Right to take away a woman´s own Personhood because of the unborn child they carry/ied?

Should we just make it simpler and go back to the day where Women are considered Property, Servants and Baby Factories?

I said this to Key already, but I´ll say it again.

I would probably give my right foot to be able to have another child, myself, again...

but I would probably give my Left foot, if these !@#$ing people would stop treating women the way they do.

  WTF!?!?  
 
they are sending a 15 year old to jail, what about the guy? she´s 15, isn´t it statutory rape??

and those other case at the source, dammit that is F$%ked up. this is why religion needs to be out of politics because for all their good intentions if you believe in a magic sky giant looking after everything, you are not living in reality enough to make good decisions and construct laws that cant be abused.

@vlynxy (in jest)
well it did make things easier ;p
And Really in a lot of places(M.E & Africa) it is still like that. looks like the USA is heading toward Sharia style laws too.

I find your jest very forgivable, since Key showed me this last night, and I´ve had plenty of time for my rage to dissipate =P

Plus I often find it very ~fun~ to "play" with those kinds of ideas, with people who don´t hold to strict beliefs that it´s the "natural order of things, for Women to Submit to Men"... That´s where I start to get ticked off again.

It´s Fun to ~play~ that way... it´s ~not~ fun, when it´s Real.

In "Nature", even Alpha Males don´t get booty time, unless the Females are Available and Open to it...

And while that may be prescribed by natural processes in many animals... humans have a greater degree of self-control and determination in such things.

When it comes to pregnancy... I ~totally~ see as precious, a life created at the moment of conception...

And I can ~also~ see the side where if a man had gotten a woman pregnant, and wanted to keep the child, and she didn´t... how hard that would be...

but it´s ~still~ Her life, and Her body.

Do I think it damages the person to choose to have an abortion? Yes. But it damages them ~More~ to have someone else´s will ~Forced~ on them.

But these effing bastards that spend all their time and money persecuting women because of a biological design should be spending that money and time figuring out a way to transfer a fetus into their ~own~ bodies to incubate it.

Only ~then~ will I ever say, any man has a say in the matter.

I´m not a man hater, I swear ~lol~

I just not "down" with this particular "sickness".

  Jail God  
 
If birth is his miracle, then miscarriages must be his will as well! There are 900,000-1,000,000 miscarriages worldwide every year

God is not currently available for comment. I think we should just start jailing the folks who claim to lead His followers till He shows up.

followers? you mean his accomplices to this genocide :o
