In response to tvoter's comment:
In response to A_Concerned_Citizen's comment:
They don't investigate every miscarriage.
Now they will have to.
ME determines the "cause of death" every time and it is document in the vital statistics.
Medical Examiners DO NOT determine cause of miscarriages. You're delusional.
This is where you neo-cons get all stupid.
A miscarriage, in utero, does not fall under the perview of the ME because it is not recognized by law as a 'person'. It is a potetial person under law.
There are extenuating circumstances such as attacks by others resulting in the termination of pregnancy but as a general rule, ME's DO NOT investigate miscarriages.
It's ludicrous to think that an ME is going to investigate the miscarriage of a ten week old fetus in utero.
Which brings up another point;
At what point in the pregnancy does criminal intent begin?
Miscarriages happen at every stage of pregnancy.
Come on, don't be dumb just for the sake of your argument.
