64. Still...it does raise an interesting point. Let's suppose abortion is criminalized and an exception

is made for the life of the mother. Who will decide whether it is truly a "justified" abortion? How will the mother prove it? What guarantee will the doctor have that they won't be charged with a crime at a later date?

I have heard stories of women who have had the child die in utero during their third trimester. They have a hard time getting the doctor to remove the baby, out of fear that he will be charged with committing a crime. In one case, the woman had the dead baby in her for way too long and, as a result, she ultimately could not have additional children.

Would there be some kind of government board? An oversight committee? Basically, all the things that the GOP doesn't like about Obamacare. (Some of which don't even really exist).

And on a related note....what about miscarriages? Don't all miscarriages automatically become potential homicides? Will poor women be required to have an attorney appointed to her from the first minute of the investigation? Can we trust all states to treat all races equally? Or even fairly?
