well i beleive we ave had this discussion in teh past,

sodium val was teh answer most ppl agreed on, but clonazepam can be it also, anything that interfeares with smooth muscle contractability is a culprit in teh case......

and the c.section one is true ! dunno why or where, but thats what i gathered anyways :)

the rest all agreed with

I remember C section being there but Ive also read Low apgar score....go figure

1. I would go with clonazepam

6. I agree with the option of lack of victim empathy but somewhere it also says previous sexual offence. Personally Im going to stick to the tried and tested...lack of empathy one.
