What about a young woman having an unwanted pregnancy ...when she is impregnated by her father, grandfather, uncle or brother? What then? I think in those cases....abortion...would be mercy not only for the mother but for the unborn fetus.

See? U found more info than you asked for.
That's another thing though, would this be state or federal? With so many circumstances, precedents could come out that made this idea terrible. And as soon as a " birth court" gets set up it could get dangerous. All of a sudden the state has jurisdiction over parts of your body. And since it would take proving a fetus is alive to license abortions, power over living things too. It could turn out to be a bigger debacle than the whole abortion debate
Not to mention if CPS was the last word on whether u get an abortion. People are angry enough with them as it is, and they can't make you get, or stop you from getting an abortion. Just imagine the incentive for a court like this to deny abortion of genuine struggling family living paycheck to paycheck just to get the child CPS'd lateredit on 6-9-2011 by Venomilk because: (no reason given)edit on 6-9-2011 by Venomilk because: (no reason given)
