Virginia GOP Attorney General Candidate Tried to Force Women to Report Miscarriages to Police

This weekend, the Virginia GOP selected state Senator Mark Obenshain as their candidate to succeed fellow right-winger Ken Cuccinelli as the state’s top prosecutor, in a move that has brought condemnation of Obenshain’s track record by state Democrats and other left wing activists.

In a shocking piece of legislation, Obenshain introduced a measure in 2009 that sought to force women to report miscarriages to the police within 24 hours — or face up to a year in jail.

The bill reads as follows:

“[SB962] requires that when a fetal death occurs without medical attendance upon the mother at or after the delivery or abortion, the mother or someone acting on her behalf, within 24 hours, report the fetal death, location of the remains, and identity of the mother to the local or state police or sheriff’s department of the city or county where the fetal death occurred. The bill also specifies that no one shall remove, destroy, or otherwise dispose of any remains without the express authorization of law-enforcement officials or the medical examiner, and that a violation of this section is a Class 1 misdemeanor.”

Cuccinelli, who made headlines after recently trying to uphold his state’s unconstitutional anti-sodomy law, was pleased by the selection of Obenshain. In a post from his Twitter account, Cuccinelli said that the attorney general candidate would be “a great addition to the team.”

    Just more proof of what I have been saying for many years, these guys want to get the government off our backs when it does something FOR us and on our backs when it does something TO us. They rail about tyranny but it really isn’t tyranny that they are against it is not being allowed to install their particular brand of tyranny. Myself, I don’t want any form of tyranny but my eyes are open and I know that it is the extreme right that wants to impose it, not the left.

    Most spontaneous miscarriages end up in the toilet.
    “Mr. Medical Examiner, I’m sure you have nothing better to do than come over here and look in my loo.”
    “Too right, darlin’. I’ll be there tomorrow. Meanwhile, don’t flush or you’re going up the river.”

    Don’t suppose this genius knows that 15-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriages. And you want to investigate them all, Obenshain? Umm, who’s gonna pay for this nonsense?

    Are all Tea Party Republican male politicians totally INSANE ? Enough with the “Invasion of The Fetal Fanatics and Reproduction Radicals.” We do not have enough money to keep police departments open for real crime and criminal investigations. Where do these out of touch with reality politicians think the $$ is going to come from ? Cutting more food programs for the poorest of the poor ? Any man who is in politics or is thinking of running for public office that starts in with controlling every females reproductive system regardless of age, should immediately be denied the right to run for public office for the rest of his life and those already holding public office need to be terminated and loss of all perks, benefits, lifetime medical coverage and pensions. These men were/are not elected to run the uteruses of America’s women. They need to get their noses out of womens privates. Why do they think you call them privates in the first place ?

    Love you comments and emphatically agree! Terminate all public figures that act to control women’s private parts! Any white man that only wishes to protect the white man’s right to control every other person on earth needs a public flogging and mandatory schooling in Science! They wouldn’t know what to do with themselves!~

    And I think that every time any male ejaculates, has a “wet dream”, has a little “leakage” that might, perhaps contain his seed, he should have to wipe it up and put it in an airtight container and deliver it to the gentleman’s home or office. Sounds great!
