Well, the case of Laura Pemberton in Ohio wasn’t mostly about criminal law, it was more about civil law and the hospital’s interpretation of medical ethics. The hospitals in Laura’s area were likely told by their lawyers that if so was allowed a trial labor and then lost the baby she would sue them for malpractice. Large institutions care about no one’s personhood save their own when it comes to avoiding legal liability.
