Joining the fray
I know I'm coming in a few hours too late, but after reading about Campfield's ridiculous "death certificate" bill, it got me way too fired up to stay silent.
Surprisingly, after all that has been said about it, only one person has come even close to the real issue. Privacy...
If this bill is enacted, death certificates would be created for aborted fetuses. As many know, death certificates are public record. In an age when all state documents will be part of some database, its not unlikely that someday an employer will be able to hop online and search to see if a potential employee shares his/her pro-life viewpoint.
It just one more way to regulate morality. Until adoption is officially made a crime, we don't need to pave the way for abortion's equivalent to the sex offender registry.
UPDATE: After reading an update on Campfield's blog, he states that this would not create an abortion registry. He seems to forget that on every death certificate there is a place for a mother and a father's name. Technically, if the father of an aborted fetus is known, he could also be subject to unjust discrimination .
