    yes, for child abuse. Just as in my state you can be ticketed for smoking in your vehicle if kids are in it. GOOD.

    For those who believe that a fetus is a person. yes certainly it is a crime for injure/put the unborn at risk by the mothers behaviour.

    I feel that it is morally wrong in any case.

    Should it be a felony to serve an alcoholic drink to a pregnant woman?

    Personal choice. For the record i am against mothers drinking while pregnant.

    Mother who do drink should be held 100% financially responsible for any medical issues to the baby once born.

    What’s the government’s compelling interest to pre-empt the fundamental right to privacy?

    You’ll need to figure that out first or your law will never survive a court challenge.

    Idealogically yes, but if she has no money is the baby to suffer?

    So a baby who's parents have money isn't abused by the same behavior as a poor baby?

    Let's put it this way. Should a woman be charged with a crime for ABORTING her baby?

    Wouldn't THAT be considered child abuse?

    You all want people to stay out your uterus, you stay the hell out of our lives and how WE RAISE OUR CHILDREN, K
