Death of a Salesblob

With Kansas inexplicably taking steps to surrender its crown as dumbest state in the union, Tennessee is bolting right for the opening.

Under this proposed legislation, death certificates would have to be filled out for all aborted fetuses within ten days of their demise. This might propose a bit of an administrative problem, as an aborted fetus does not have a name, address, Social Security number, place of birth, or any other kind of identifying feature of the sort that is normally recorded on a death certificate. This makes the resulting document slightly less useful than a blank piece of paper except for its actual purpose, which is providing a means to facilitate the harrassment of women.

I look forward to Tennessee's next bold legislative proposal, which I'm guessing will be requiring funerals for every chicken eaten within the state lines.

(Thanks to Maud for the tip.)

It's clearly an identity theft precaution. Another quality of the unborn is that they never pay their bills.

Well, not to mention keeping tabs on the number of abortions performed and by what medical professionals (who have to certify the death).

Keep in mind, too, that the nutsack promoting this piece of "legislation" made a name for himself a couple of years ago trying to join the Black Caucus in the TN lege.
