...how would they enforce it? Right now, you don't have to officially report that you're pregnant. You can use a midwife at home instead of going to the doctor. If abortion were illegal, in order to really make the baby the property of the state so they can "protect" it, would there have to be a law saying you HAVE to report your pregnancy right when you find out? Would not reporting your pregnancy mean you are neglecting your baby and hiding from the state? Would you not have the right to not use the hospital and just use a midwife or something anymore? Would they force tests on you to make sure you're not "endangering" your baby's life? If you miscarry, would you have to be investigated to see if it was your fault or not? I think if a fetus is considered a baby, all these things could possibly happen.
If things like this happened, wouldn't you have a problem with it?

Oh, I didn't mean that she needs to give it a rest, just to be prepared for tired responses.
There is one of these questions at least once a week, so if you get a lot of pissy responses, don't be surprised. But by all means, feel free to post whatever question you want as long as it doesn't violate CM's TOS.

Can they really file suit against you for medical charges?
