    It’s my understanding that this law will also criminalize a woman who has a miscarriage. “Prosecutors may interrogate women who miscarry to determine whether they can be held responsible; if they find evidence of culpability, they may charge, detain, and try these women for the death of their fetuses." If the fetus inside a woman is considered a distinct, living person with full legal recognition, incarcerating a mother would (legally speaking) also be imprisoning a person who had committed no crime nor had a trial. Strange how these lawmakers want to ban all abortions, but do nothing to help those already born by improving education, healthcare access, and making sure they have a healthy diet.
