First, there are NO reliable stats on false rape allegations...it has not been seriously studied. I can present you studies that claim anywhere from
3% to 40+%.
I think it is fair, and safe, to assume that the same ratio of 'false allegations' is pretty steady accross the board for all criminal issues.
Second, this is an unforceable law, so why even bother.
Although, I do agree with it to a certain extent (my wife used to work at an OB/GYN clinic, the amount of self inflicted abuse amongst young mothers,
in my area, is very high, most from lack of knowledge) that there needs to be some form of legislation, but my reasons differ.
My reasons for wanting some form of legislation are in the name of equality.
If I get into an accident with a pregnant woman, at my fault, I can and will be charged for multiple deaths...not a singular. Yet, if the mother
knowingly damages the baby...nothing. This to me creates an inconsistancy in law, and inconsistency leads to loop holes, etc.
So the law needs to pick a side, either the baby does not matter until birth, or it matters (and is applied equally) from conception.
Side thought, if you think finding the exact cause of a misscariage would be hard testing the mother, it would be even harder testing the father. I
took great pains to cleanse my system prior to baby making, as did my wife...for her it was a 4 month process, for me 5 days...thank you new batch
