Michigan sucks

Not the football team. Although I do think that it would have been a little silly for them to play Ohio State again. But I digress.

A newly passed law makes it a crime for a man to "'change or attempt to change an existing housing or cohabitation arrangement' with a pregnant significant other, to 'file or attempt to file for a divorce' from his pregnant wife or to 'withdraw or attempt to withdraw financial support' from a woman whom he has been supporting" if doing so could be construed as coercing her to have an abortion.

This law is wrong on so many counts that I simply don't know where to begin. Blech.

I think the part that is subjective is "if doing so could be construed as coercing her to have an abortion." But what if she tries to kill him or if she's having an affair or if she hid the pregnancy from him. Very interesting how this one will play out.
