Future Headline: Woman Sentenced to 6 Months for Not Using Condom

I went with something kinda of alarming (or do I mean alarmist?) regarding the Obamacare bill that just passed the house-- over at When Falls the Coliseum. A piece called, well, you can figure it out from the title of this post. First two paragraphs:
Michelle Hottentot, 26, of Sherman Heights, has been sentenced to six months in jail for violating the state’s Health Care Freedom and Insurance Act. Ms. Hottentot was convicted of having unprotected sex with an unidentified man with whom she was not in a committed monogamous relationship.

Prosecutors had argued that Ms. Hottentot’s promiscuous behavior was in violation of the state’s health care laws, which require that all citizens not “knowingly engage in any behavior that might be considered ‘risky’ to any reasonable person or entity.” Cities around the state have been prosecuting people for any number of activities, including riding skateboards and inhaling helium to make their voices squeaky.
All of it here.
