"Especially if you make more than $10 million. Audits of these folks surged 73% last year, hitting more than 18% of taxpayers in the highest income bracket, according to recently released statistics from the IRS."

Now, if they'd only start going after the corporations, too!

<<... and charges that have arisen in a host of cases where a woman's behavior has been deemed to endanger the health of her child.>>

Do you have any links?

In looking at your first link, it led me to look at court cases to see what the courts have been determining with regard to rights of pregnant women. Looks like the courts are not on your side. http://www.advocatesforpregnantwomen.org/issues/criminal_cases_and_issues/

Also in your first link, it detailed cases where pregnant women were jailed to "protect the fetus," yet were allowed to deliver alone, despite pleas for help from other inmates and the woman herself. Yep, how's that "protecting" working out? Not so great, I'd say.

Your second link, the murder charge was dropped. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4863415/ns/health-womens_health/

Your third link, the court of appeals decided she hadn't committed a crime. http://alcoholism.about.com/cs/fas/a/aa990527.htm

Your fourth link, charges were dropped because she hadn't broken the law. http://www.eagletribune.com/newhampshire/x1876412717/Charges-dropped-in-child-endangerment-case-Woman-had-been-accused-of-using-heroin-while-pregnant

Your fifth link, I can't find a final disposition, but against her attorney's advice, she plead guilty and was sentenced. After a certain state supreme court decision, her attorney was going to ask for a dismissal, but I can't find out what happened after that. The state supreme court decision would have ruled that she hadn't broken any law. http://www.state-journal.com/news/article/4846172

I'm not sure what your last link was supposed to prove. It looks to me like it backs up the other links I posted above.

There are no laws that hold a woman accountable for becoming pregnant. Pining is correct...wishing it doesn't make it so.

I was asked to provide links to incidents where women were charged, not specifically found guilty.

LOL. Complete wishful thinking. I think people are now seeing just how outrageous and draconian these lawmakers are toward women. It's despicable and most women aren't going to stand for it. Eyes are certainly being opened, but not in the way you'd like to think.

So we are back to the same issue...no one has the right to live off another person's body without that person's consent.
