Refusal of Caesarean=murder?
Anyone seen/heard this? [Search didn't turn up anything, spare me if I overlooked.]
Jeb Bush has asked a court to appoint a guardian for the fetus of a developmentally disabled rape victim.
(reg: mefi, mefi) Never mind that in a 1989 case, the Florida Supreme Court declared that it was "clearly improper" to appoint a guardian for a fetus.
The 22-year-old woman is so disabled that her pregnancy is considered a product of rape
, is incapable of consenting to a DNA test
and cannot otherwise help the police find the father
; but I'm sure she'll make a great mom!
Health Care For Youngest Americans...or Sneak Attack On Pro-Choice Lobby?
Interesting proposal from HHS...guaranteed to fan the flames of what has been called the "most divisive issue in modern America." Should a fetus be classified as a "beneficiary" of health care benefits under the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)? If this proposal is approved, will it forever change the debate?
Fetus is a person? The bill's supporters, predominantly Republicans during the debate, denied the measure is anti-abortion, and instead is aimed at punishing criminals who attack pregnant women. It exempts abortions performed with the woman's consent.
Is that all it is or is there a set up for further laws, going into abortion and such?
