I don't know if it is the height of hypocrisy, but it does raise the question of whether they could have ordered and abortion instead of a birth if the government agent decided that was in the best interest of this mentally incapacitated woman.
With all of the time between when the government took charge of this woman and when the medical decision was made, there was NO excuse for the government to make that decision. They easily could have found a family member or a friend to act on her behalf while she was mentally incapacitated.The woman, who says she was kept in the dark about the proceedings, says that after five weeks in the ward she was forcibly sedated.
If this is accurate, this was not 5 minutes, or 5 hours, or even 5 days. This was 5 weeks in the internet age and they could not find a legal guardian other than the government agent to make decisions for this woman nor take care of her child.
All involved are seriously messed up.

He made a comment in an American magazine about Croat's and the French think they have legal standing? I am not sure what is dumber, that somone in France filed against the singer, or that their courts actually even consider this an option. This after their gave him their highest public civilian honor? What a bunch of intellectual midgets.
