Who Needs Representation More, People or Fetuses?

On Behalf of | January 16, 2015 | Gender Discrimination, Harassment

I am a huge “Daily Show” fan (and cried myself to sleep when “The Colbert Report” went off the air).  Last night, Jessica Williams had an AMAZING segment on a new Alabama law authorizing judges to appoint attorneys for fetuses still in utero.  Yes, that’s right: Alabama won’t appoint an attorney to help a woman prosecute, oh, say, a pregnancy discrimination claim against her employer.  But it will give that employee’s fetus an attorney. Wow. Just wow.

You can view the entire segment here, and a shout out to Jezebel for bringing it to my attention this morning.
