Birth in Space!
This is why your argument is so stupid. Ponder that for a bit.
Yes only when over the U.S. ZOT
You are not in any nation when you are in orbit. Airspace does not extend to infinity.
Have you seen my moose? He’s a pretty thing and answers to the name `Brautigan.’
If born over North Korea or China they are a commie.
I am assuming pregnant women are not allowed to go into outer space.
Also, if a woman time travels back to the middle ages and gives birth on land that will one day be America, is that baby a native born American?
Also, if a blue fairy turns a wooden puppet into a real boy on American soil, can that former puppet be president? What if the original wood was Canadian?
[ Legal question for all you jus soli types. Suppose a foreign woman was orbiting the earth. Does the child become an American only if they happen to be over the United States when he pokes his head out?
This is why your argument is so stupid. Ponder that for a bit. ]
No they become the world’s first Extra-Terestial, well sides the ones that are stored at Area 51 ;)
Orbit is not infinity. What altitude would you suggest is sufficient to answer the question?
Good luck pushing in space.
Or Berkley. :)
P.S. I am assuming pregnant women are not allowed to go into outer space.
Suppose they didn't start out that way. It can get mighty boring on the ole international space station. :)

Answer #1: No the Baby is a “Time Lord- American” and should get dual citizenship from both Galifrey and the closest Native American Tribe they were born near.
Answer #2: Geppetto will be raided by the feds and arrested for working on the Indian Wood he obtained from his overseas supplier before the fairy even has a chance to work her magic.
Only if the baby has a freakishly huge head and the very top of it briefly touches the state of Texas before burning to a cinder.
There, I can play, too!
Isn’t one president with a wooden head enough?
What is the nationality of the father?

Women have given birth in pools which is a “zero bouyancy” same as space. Muscles still work in space.
Now the Neutonian reaction of th baby exiting the mother will cause a very small delta-V to the craft she is in, but no more than the people moving about inside of the cabin.
The child would be an illegal space alien and would be allowed to cross our borders with impunity.
Yes! Best answer, IMO.
