•A woman in Utah gave birth to twins. When one was stillborn, she was arrested and charged with criminal homicide based on the claim that the woman’s decision to refuse cesarean surgery was the cause of the stillbirth. Several hours after giving birth, and immediately after suffering the death of her child, she was forcibly taken from her hospital room to a jail cell.


•After a hearing that lasted less than a day, a court issued an order requiring a critically-ill pregnant woman who was refusing surgery in Washington, D.C. to undergo a cesarean. Neither she nor her baby survived.


•A judge in Ohio kept a woman imprisoned to prevent her from having an abortion.


•A woman in Oregon who did not comply with a doctor’s recommendation to have additional testing for gestational diabetes was subjected to involuntary civil commitment. During her detention, the additional testing was never performed.
