Give Her Fetus a Ticket

A woman in Arizona is trying to avoid a ticket for driving in the carpool lane by claiming that her unborn fetus counts as a person, thus she’s entitled to the carpool lane.

Ignoring all the neo right wing conservative christian arguments, this is ridiculous.

The law was intended for licensed drivers. I believe that if your 6 year old is in the car with you, that shouldn’t count either. It’s not like your kid can drive their own car. It’s carpool for a reason.

If the court does agree that the fetus is a person however, they should promptly issue it a ticket for not wearing it’s own seatbelt.
