Save Elisa Bauer's Baby!

Elisa Bauer is a 32 year old young woman who is currently living in a group home at the request of her adoptive parents who are her guardians. She is mentally retarded as the result of fetal alcohol syndrome and also has a mild form of epilepsy. She has recently become pregnant and has been ordered to have an abortion and undergo sterilization against her will and against the will of her parents. She is just finishing her first trimester. She knows she cannot care for the child, and her parents are already lining up qualified couples to adopt the baby. The state has no right to intervene in health related issues. That is up to her and her parents!
