Abortion or miscarriage or what? Prepare for a tsunami of legal wrangling.

If it is illegal to intentionally terminate a pregnancy, how will law enforcement know if a miscarriage is intentional or not? The answer: investigate. Investigate every miscarriage as a possible crime. Determine what pills women have been ordering. Follow up on those who may have assisted them in any way. On and on. Gather the evidence.
