Miscarriages may become illegal

A law in Utah criminalize miscarriages, making it a felony homicide.  That means a woman could conceivably be put in prison for life because she has a miscarriage. 

Now I understand the intentions behind the bill...  It seems rather irresponsible to purposely bring about a miscarriage.  But this seems to criminalize spontaneous miscarriages that 1 out 4 pregnancies naturally result in without being irresponsible.  There has to be a better way to word this bill to exclude normal miscarriages, and include the irresponsible ones.
