That act of child cruelty has drawn the attention of Georgia State Sen. Ralph Hudgins (R-Hull), who has introduced legislation to limit the number of embryos that fertility clinics can implant. The limit would be three for women over 40 and two for younger women. It should be passed into law.Once again, a conservative who routinely calls for government restraint in our lives except if the lives happen to be a woman and her doctor. Then, it's katie-bar-the-door.
Much will be said about the practicalities of this nonsense - particularly the expense and danger of requiring multiple treatments - but I want to talk about the bigger picture.
I understand that my ability to buy beer on Sunday and a woman's health are on astronomically different levels, but given the "liquor on sunday bill" failed once again yesterday and is now followed up by this weird, mean piece of legislation, I want anyone who still thinks the Republicans in this state believe government should stay out of our lives to raise their hands.
