Activists Mailing Photos Of Used Tampons To Georgia Politician

Of all the anti-abortion legislative f***ery to happen recently, one of the saddest stories is out of Georgia. As I blogged in Today’s Lady News on Wednesday, GA State Representative Bobby Franklin has introduced a bill that would would classify abortion as “prenatal murder” in order to criminalize it, which would thus require miscarriages to be investigated by the state.
