Well, at least they gave some debate on this bill to make it somewhat 'sane'; I think the article mentioned that an earlier version of the bill would've forced women to carry to full term even if the child was certain to die shortly after birth, which just...seems like a bad idea to me on some level (I'll need time to come up with a more comprehensive argument on this point, however).
Still, I'm not 100% certain on one or more parts of the bill/bills that were debated. For example, the drug test law could be seen as intrusive and, as was mentioned in the article, seems to pick out one group out of numerous who could be test. Additional reasons for implementing these tests on one specific group should be provided, in my view.
I really should be working right now, but somehow I don't have the energy.
