Webber & Thies Counsel David Bernthal continued his promotion of public understanding of our legal system in an op-ed published Sunday in the Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette.

How would the courts react to an argument that “if we are born without our consent, we should be maintained for our life” and that thus “we should be paid by our parents to live”?
