    What is extremely disabled? After all leave matters of life and death to the government and it will define extremely disabled however it wishes. Object, and that's proof that you're incompetent to make that decision and NEED the government to make it for you.

    Consider a six-year-old having a child. Six year olds don't have any legal choice. Adults instinctively protect them and make choices for them, especially the hard ones.

    The woman was raped, repeatedly. Children can't consent to sex, and someone with the mind of a 6 year old cant consent to sex.

    I'm very happy to see someone approach this question from the technology angle.

    Her adoptive parents can't make a rational decision. They are Catholics, meaning they refuse to consider any other option besides birth.

    Her parents failed in allowing a mentally ill woman to go out alone and have sex with strange men.

    I disagree that being Catholic means you lose perspective, especially when your child's life may be on the line.

    However they knew she was slipping out of the group home and having sex with strange men at a local truck stop. So yes, I think an investigation into possible neglect by the group home and her parents are in order.

    Her parents have cited their religious beliefs and stated that because of these beliefs, they want the baby to be born. Notice that they believe that their religious beliefs should dictate what happens?
    The woman's life is at risk, as is the life of the fetus, yet they want her to have a baby. They are putting the woman's life second to a fetus!

    The debate in the court is whether the preganacy will bring undue risk to the woman. It has not been proven either way.

    You may not be in support of it, but once you begin to allow forced sterilization on handicapped individuals someone else will begin promoting forced sterilization of the poor (aka welfare moms) and from their it will build, before long it will be people of a certain race.

    I will present an example. President Bush gave us the unPatriot Act which was followed by President Obama's killing of an American al-Qaeda (al-Awlaki?) member without even so much as a pretend trial. Then the NDAA came along and they wanted permission to imprison Americans indefinitely without the right to a trial.

    What is next?

    No, we should not be forcing sterilization on anyone.

    I rarely buy into the slippery slope argument.

    I think you can say "the state has the right to sterilize those who have been found incompetent and who the state is their legal guardian" without it leading to mass forced sterilization of the lower class.
