At the seminar, questions connected to what, if any, responsibilities the Child protection service (barnevernet) should have for the unborn life will be discussed. In Norway, the Child protection service's responsibilites are limited to the protection of the born child. Among the questions are: If the Child protection service should be ascribed a right or even a duty to intervene against a pregnant women: what should be the conditions for the duty to be trigged? What (if any) kind of lifestyle/health problems/drug use and more should trigger a right or duty to involve (report a worry) the Child protection service (“melde bekymring”)? Who should have the right or duty to involve the Child protection service? To what extent is an intervention from the Child protection service against the pregnant women an attack on her privacy and autonomy?
These and other questions will be discussed in a report that is to be delivered to The Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs in 2020. The task of the group working on the report, is to discuss the questions form ethical, legal and medical perspectives.
