Prosecutors have suggested that the reason the woman, Melissa Ann Rowland, refused the procedure was her desire to avoid an abdominal scar.
Rowland allowed her child to die in utero in order to avoid an unsightly scar -- a claim that conflicts with her own statement that she had already had C-sections (and scars) in the past and thus was not simply trying to preserve a scar-free aesthetic.
Sherry F. Colb, a FindLaw columnist, is a Professor at Rutgers Law School in Newark.
Sherwood Rowland, along with colleagues Paul Crutzen and Mario Molina, was awarded the Nobel prize last November for discovering the threat chlorofluorocarbons pose to the ozone layer, for working to preserve the ozone layer, and for protecting human welfare.
Sherwood (Sherry) Rowland is perhaps the ideal candidate for the Revelle Medal of the American Geophysical Union.
Sherry is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and is soon to be its Foreign Secretary.
