You can also keep abortion laws and allow women safe and legal abortions and make it illegal to continuously harm your baby.
This sounds horrible, but I'd rather you abort and end that childs misery then constantly injest heroin or alcohol making the baby suffer everyday in the womb
And at say after 28 weeks if you are still pregnant and using you get forced into a facility.
See the grey area? once we open the flood gates, more and more examples are going to be added where women have their rights taken bc an activity is deemed dangerous. The overweight pg woman is told she will be incarcerated of sorts until she loses weight. Bc obesity is a 'choice' to overeat and causes lots of issues with pg and birth. Therefore an overweight pg woman is actively choosing to harm her child.
Hell just driving a car pg is dangerous. And before you say stop being silly, think about it. In a serious accident the chances of the baby dying are pretty high. it was a choice for her to drive. Therefore, being realistic, every single pg woman that sits in a moving car is exposing their child to potential death....
We drive everyday with a risk of a person, child, baby or foetus dying everyday but we still drive. I would only assume that a newborn is at high risk of serious injury aswell? I think if you are negligent in a driving accident you are and should be charged. Whether its your baby or not, whether an unborn baby has a higher risk or not we accept it ( because we do already when we get in our cars)
No one drives just because you can't get charged for causing death to an unborn baby and no one will stop if you do.
You are still responsible and should be careful because pregnancy is part of society.
