This situation did actually occur around here, wondering what you think.
25 year old woman 5 kids with 3 different dads. Delivered all between 23-35weeks and everyone of them had extensive NICU stays costs millions of dollars per child. She and all of her children are on MA and she and the baby daddies don't have jobs. In the case of the last 3 she purposly left various hospital against medical advice - discontinuing the medication treating her preterm labor herself. She also decided with the 3rd that 33 weeks was long enough and through "her research" determined that it would likely survive so she took herself off bedrest and oral preterm labor meds and walked 3 miles to induce labor - delivered 4 hours later. the next was at 23 weeks and she left the hospital again and decided to drive herself to another hospital - water broke on the 2 hour drive and she had it 20 min after getting to the hospital. Last baby was born at 26 weeks and she again ignored medical advice - because the last on "was fine" at 23 weeks and this one is 26 weeks and i'm sick of being pregnant. all this was well documented and the state stepped in and said either get a tubal or we will no longer cover your medical expenses. she chose the tubal. do you think the state was justified

It does not sound like they forced her to get a tubal. They gave her a choice. Pay for yor own medical for more babies or get a tubal. she could have moved to a different state.
