So, a New Mexico legislator is proposing a bill which would make it illegal to compel or coerce a person to have an abortion in order to destroy evidence of “criminal sexual penetration or incest“.
New Mexico’s Democratic Party chairman calls it an “atrocious piece of legislation.”
It’s odd, but none of the stories I found actually named New Mexico’s Dem Party chairman, presumably, that would be Javier Gonzales (Santa Fe).
The person introducing the legislation is Rep. Cathrynn Brown, from Carlsbad.
What is atrocious about passing a law that makes it a crime to force someone to have an abortion in order to destroy evidence of a sex crime? Sure, abortion is a hot-button topic, but, this, it seems to me, is a no brainer. Is it that Dems want sexual predators to have the ability to force people to have abortions?
