Okay, I don''t know whether this is a conservative *or* liberal approach to this issue, and quite frankly, I don''t care...
This amounts to child abuse. We take children away from parents who abuse them, and I don''t think anybody would argue against that.
I am also against abortion. That is child abuse.
I support laws banning adults from smoking in a car that has a child in it. I personally have asthma and other health problems because my grandmother smoked in the house with me constantly for my first 6 years of life.
Children are not capable of making decisions like this, parents should be. And sometimes they aren''t. Don''t get me wrong, the government gets it wrong A LOT, but in this instance, I believe they got it right. And I think the only time they should interfere is helping the helpless, i.e. the mentally ill, children, etc.
