If successful under such a law, the mother in law should then also be solely responsible for the funding of and raising the child.
Wisconsin's Republicans bill would allow the woman's husband, parents or mother and father-in-law to stop a planned abortion. More: uppitywis.org.
No, and even if this were to become law it would be ruled unconstitutional almost right away. As a conservative, I find this kind of non-sense embarrassing. You might not agree with abortion but the choice isn't yours. I also find it funny that those the say abortion should be illegal, never give money to raise said baby after it's born.
I have yet to find ONE person who is against abortion that, when questioned closely, don't refer to religion or god. Since this is a law to basically enforce a religious edict, then shouldn't we pass other laws based on religion, even if they are Christian ones? Stoning for adultery? Killing a disobedient child? Deuteronomy 21:18-21 something to think about.
Wisconsin's Republicans are far more interested in their outdated religious views than the actual rights of the child/ parents/ carers.
When it comes to abortion, there is only one person who gets the final say- the mother. In a way, men who have consensual sex with a women relinquish their right to this argument by the very act. It isn't the male body that will have to deal with the consequences of pregnancy. Now weather men should have the right to opt out of parenthood, that's a different matter.
if the son wants to have the child but the daughter in law insists on an abortion the in laws should have the right to put a stop to it, as it is not just her child but their son's also. To take a life is the same as murder.
Most likely, as more than half the households in America right now have a parent-in-law as one of the decision makers rather than the natural parents of the child.
If you've taken on the responsibility of father or motherhood via the contract of marriage, then you taken on ALL the responsibilities associated with raising children and looking out for their well being and welfare.
You can't just have one bit of the job... the in-law parent has the WHOLE job.
(I'm sure that if the child "messed up" and got in trouble with the law under one of those laws that prescribes punishment for the parent instead of the child, that an in-law parent would be just as liable for punishment under that law as a natural parent... hence, if you have the responsibility, then you have THE WHOLE job.)
