But there's a crucial difference between abortion and the arm-amputation analogy. Barring some genuinely compelling medical reason such as gangrene, you're not going to find a doctor who'll agree that, hey, yeah, your daughter will be much better off being able to live her life unencumbered by those pesky arms. However, I can imagine it's perfectly possible to find a doctor who believes that abortion is in the best interests of an underage girl.

I think the forced-abortion scenario is a very real and plausible one, and that it's possible this law could even lead to more abortions than it prevented.
