Doctor gets court order to hold pregnant woman against her will

In one of the most obscene overreaching of government control I’ve ever heard, a pregnant woman showing signs of potential miscarriage was forced to undergo bed rest, denied the right to a second opinion, was admitted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital against her will and undergo any procedure the doctor felt like prescribing, and denied the right to switch hospitals. Three days later, she miscarried because contrary to this quack’s belief, bed rest can’t stop a miscarriage and is in fact the American College of of Obstetricians and Gynecologists does not even think it should be recommended.

The woman, Samantha Burton, sued on the grounds that her constitutional rights were violated and somehow she actually lost because the court ruled the State was merely maintaining “status quo. “So now you know. Holding a woman against her will promotes the status quo.
