“Intentional or Knowing” Miscarriage is Criminal Homicide in Utah

Utah has joined Delaware and New York in criminalizing intentionally or knowingly caused miscarriages after a 17 year old girl asked someone to beat her until she miscarried.  The link, from Jezebel, is here.  Perhaps another option might have been to provide services or support for 17 year old pregnant girls–or better access to contraception or sex education to attempt to prevent unwanted pregnancies?
