Well it seems that it will not be a crime to have a miscarriage in the state of Utah after all.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has signed House Bill 462, stating only abortions performed by a doctor through a medical procedure would be legal.  Again this is in response to a 17 yr old girl who paid someone $150 to beat her to induce a miscarriage.

The bill originally included language that stated women who have a miscarriage naturally or who have a miscarriage while doing sports could have been prosecuted as well.  Fortunately that has been changed.
