On Monday, 3/30, Indiana court sentenced 33 years old Purvi Patel for having an involuntary miscarriage.
“The way I see it,” said Sue Ellen Braunlin, doctor and co-president of the Indiana Religious Coalition for Reproductive Justice, “God decided that Mrs. Patel deserves to lose her child. He taketh the child away. It is our responsibility to carry out the rest of God’s will and make sure Mrs. Patel suffers as much as humanly possible given the short amount of time we have to act.”
Indiana Governor Michael Richard “Mike” Pence defended the court’s decision.
“Our God, praise be to Him, had spoken,” he said.
Mrs. Patel is to be lashed 30 times and then beheaded in public for her unintentional action.

News Sense News is a satirical blog that aims to criticize and ridicule ignorance and narrow-mindedness.
Author’s note: The above is not funny. Not at all. Purvi Patel was indeed sentenced to 20 years in prison in Indiana for having a miscarriage. She may not have been beheaded, but the the difference is a matter of degree. This is ISIS operating in the United States under a different religion. The value of satire is to raise awareness. I hope this blog demonstrates how perverse things can become when the religious conservatives choose to operate with 18th century mentality.
