The pregnant woman already has a social worker and the social worker supports continuing the pregnancy. This is a case where a judge has decided that not only the pregnant woman but everyone around her is nuts and that the baby must be killed. It isn't a decision to protect anyone, including the unborn child. It's a decision couched firmly in the idea that only the preferred classes of people should be allowed to have children and even then, only at the discretion of the courts.You brought your soap box w/you.
The issue here is that he woman is not a mentally competent adult.
So, that alone makes it quite different from the hyperbole you suggest "they know what's best for everyone".
The assertion here is that the court knows better than the woman with a mental disability special psychological needs.
Feel free to make the case that "everyone" is the equivalent of a mentally deficient person with emotional issues.
This situation could've happened w/o regard to w/e economic system was in place.
The issue is about the care for those among us who're unable to care for themselves.
This issue would exist and persist in even in a world which was an entirely and totally a free market world.
idk if this was the right decision.
idk why the judge feels that the woman's mother is not likely to stick around.
