What to do?

My attending asked us today whether or not it was society's place to judge whether a pregnant, psychotic patient should have a choice of conceiving a child when there is substantial risk to the well-being of the fetus.

Forcing birth control on another person, is not a good idea. It treads eugenics territory.

A crazy person cannot self-impregnate. If a man wants to entrust his seed to a crazy woman, there's at least one more person making that decision.

Good question.
