    I know NM legislature is solidly blue and this will never pass, but this is just ****ing crazy. Wouldn't surprise me if ALEC was behind this and using NM as a trial balloon. Your move Virginia, Texas, Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama…

    Perhaps should the defendant be found guilty - the 'object' or 'member' that was used to commit the crime should removed so it can preserved in the vaults as evidence. That might even things up in suitably Biblical way.

    I wouldn't mind taking all our citizens who think this way and putting them into quarantine. They're really sick.

    The alternative is to require the state to pay for, and perform, whatever procedures are necessary to immediately remove the "evidence" from the body so as to preserve it for future trial.

    Can't the physician simply take a sample and reserve it for a certain period of time for each abortion and courts can apply to have the sample tested in some criminal cases.

    Yes, it's called an abortion. Take the sample. I'm sure the victim won't mind.

    In case you thought that the war on women would go quiet for the next few months, what with all the issues about taxes and government spending to deal with.

    They could take a fetal blood sample pre-abortion, run it for DNA, then destroy it. The victim wouldn't have any psychological tie. Would all be voluntary of course.

    It looks like she's made some amendments because, of course, she didn't exactly mean to victimize the victim. :rolleyes:
