Very irresponsible and should be a crime punishable by 10-15 years in prison if the baby is injured. Life in prison if the baby dies.

If you are not a high risk pregnancy. I see no problem. I on the other hand like to have a midwife there for comfort level.

"Ok I am going to bite, why should it be a crime? You are all about being pro-choice and yet you are against this. That is a contradiction. "
Where's the contradiction? Pro-choice advocates are NOT for putting a child's life at risk. If the child is injured because a mother decided to have an unassisted home birth, it should be a crime just like any parent that neglects their child's health care or well being. There are so many good programs and midwives out there. It's just plain stupid and neglectful to not use those services.

"It is a contradiction because legally a baby isn't a life until it survives separately from it's mother, and that is what pro-choicers scream all the time, so the birthing process has nothing to do with the baby until it is out and separated from the mother. It isn't illegal when babies are hurt or killed because of hospital birthing so why should an unassisted birth be different.
No, pro-choice people want the government to stay out of our uterus's. It's not up to the government to decide what we can do with our reproductive systems. Pro-choice people are for "We the people" having our CHOICES. Even though we support people having choices doesn't mean we support people to chose to neglect or abuse their children. That's basically what you're saying. We are for choices but when a crime is committed you will pay the price for the action.
