Pregnant Woman Detained For Violating 'Fetal Protection' Law (Anti-Choice Big Brother Blueprint)Submitted by MMJ Ministry on Fri, 10/25/2013 - 01:57
"Alicia Beltran cried with fear and disbelief when county sheriffs surrounded her home on July 18 and took her in handcuffs to a holding cell.
She was 14 weeks pregnant and thought she had done the right thing when, at a prenatal checkup, she described a pill addiction the previous year and said she had ended it on her own — something later verified by a urine test. But now an apparently skeptical doctor and a social worker accused her of endangering her unborn child because she had refused to accept their order to start on an anti-addiction drug."
Update: I have edited the title for accuracy. As someone who is Pro-Life for myself and pro-choice for everyone else, i did not want to lump myself in with the authoritarian Anti-Choice crowd that championed this law.
