    Racism? I don't see that. There are a hell of a lot of white crack addicts... and meth addicts, alcoholics, heroine users... as well, probably more in overall numbers. I do see a healthy dose of misogynism in these laws and the way they are being enforced, however.

    WTH?? I read the first link in the thread, and am confused about why there is debate here. I have 5 kids. I smoked when I was younger, and drank beer, and I quit EVERYTHING when I was pregnant. When you have another life growing in your body you can't do stuff like that. Same with breastfeeding, which I did 5 times for a LONG time. Good grief. Guess I will have to read the thread now and see what is going on here.
    I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.

    I am willing to bet - and will happily start a poll on this - that when most people talk of young pregnant cocaine addicted women the mental image that is evoked in many is of a young African - American woman. We can thank the media for this but it is there.

    These "social constructs" often influence how we think on certain subjects.

    Every so often it is good to drag them into the spotlight and REALLY examine them and if they are found to be unfair - jump up and down on them!!
    Actually whenever I think of pregnant women and drugs I think of Britney Spears.

    Seriously what is wrong with parts of America these days? Throwing women in jail for live for having still births or premature births? Not even the freaking Taliban and Iranian mullahs do this!
    Obviously she should have had an abortion and failing to do so violated the criminal laws of her state. To be in full compliance with law, all women in her state should always have abortions for all pregnancies under her pro-abortion state laws.

    The results of pro-lifers on a warpath without consideration from the broader consequences of their actions. . . I thought that when I first read the article and still do: nothing's changed.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
