A race is on for a local state House seat currently held by Mike Turzai (R) who voted in 2006 to amend the PA Constitution to “protect” marriage. Democrat Sharon Brown of McCandless is challenging him. Turzai is not supporting HB 300. The marriage equality bills and hate crimes legislation haven't been introduced in the House so our litmus test is a bit thin. Well, except for amending the Constitution. Whatever you think of that.
We'll keep you updated on Brown's campaign.
Speaking of HB 300, you can follow its progress here.
Maria of 2 Political Junkies reminds us that anti-choice can be very anti-woman, pointing out something I such much bandied about on Twitter yesterday – Utab is criminalizing miscarriage. It has been the case that causing someone else to have a miscarriage was a crime. Now Utah can begin monitoring women's behavior to determine potential fetus threats. A little too The Handmaid's Tale for my taste, eh? We are not incubators.
