In the Telegraph today. I hope that this lady wins, and that it starts a whole avalanche of similar cases:

A pregnant woman is challenging a fine for driving in a high occupancy vehicle lane in Texas arguing her unborn child was a passenger following last month’s Supreme Court ruling on Roe v Wadee_.
Brandy Bottone, 32, was hit with a $215 (£179) ticket on the Dallas Expressway as she rushed to pick up her six-year-old son.
She plans to contest the ticket in court because Texas, one of 13 states with trigger abortion bans, now regards a foetus as a person.

"It’s a good case to show you can’t have the negative aspect of eliminating reproductive rightss_, without giving a pregnant person the benefits."
"If a foetus is a person the rights must be complete."
