Satori's arguments are valid. Try to shoot one down.
Statistics on why miscarriages happen, need to be gathered.
The legislation is currently in effect. The changes are...........from 3 days...To 12 hours. Probably for the reasons that Satori iterated.
I think its one of the lamest piece of beurocratic crap I've ever heard. Honestly the odds of a miscarriage being down to domestic abuse are a billion to one. So lets say there were two cases in the entire of the US in one year, the police would have to follow up every miscarriage to check if the woman is bruised. Now im sure some woman do have miscarriages due to car accidents, falls etc, so you have to rule these out...
And if they did, how do you think these guys would feel? 99.9% of them wouldn't have laid a finger on their wife, and would be dealing with the miscarriage themselves.
This is frankly silly. You don't refer all women who wander into A&E to the police, so why do it with miscarriages.
I've just read the proposed bill which says all miscarriages must be reported. THis despite the fact that many miscarriages just seem like heavier than normal periods.
Silliest thing i've heard in some time.
And stats on miscarriage are generally gathered through the hospital and doctors reports. Most women that know they have miscarried will go to the doctors or hospital themselves. You can't force people just to get a bit better standard deviation on your statistics. This is not a police matter whatsoever.
Sartori/douglas i would advise you both look at the lower of those two links at the top of this thread. If you still have the same barmy agreement with the bill after reading through it...
