It's actually a thing, Google "elective cesarean birth".

Women want to plan their expensive baby-party for a particular day, etc. You can't leave that to chance, not when you need to book the venue and the catering.

A lot of women also don't want to go through all that scary 'labor'' business or get their prize-winning vagina all stretched out.

This allows the government to hack AN UNLIMITED NUMBER OF COMPUTERS if they have a rubber stampped warrant from a judge who has no understanding of what they are signing.

I would assume that a judge would have some common sense. A warrant might say "All computers own by XXX person" or "all computers at XXX location." I doubt that a judge will sign a warrant for "all computers in Utah."

What is the alternative? "Whoops, we got a warrant to search five computers, but all of the illegal stuff is on computer #6, so we have to let this criminal go?"

Judges had to go through law school -- they are generally not stupid. I bet that most of them even own a computer or two.
