You misunderstood me there, I said that only physical threats to the mother's life are grounds for termination. Suicidal tendencies are not grounds, but the Supreme court ruled it is. That is the fault of the drafters of the amendment.What an un-thinking post. If a mother is suicidal, that is precisely the worst time to kill her baby. What will she feel like when she has recovered from her mental disorder? Is she not likely to feel that she has been cheated, or blame herself for killing her own child?
