Good. She clearly committed assault.
Using recreational drugs on yourself - and only yourself - ought not to be illegal and should always be your choice, as you're not hurting anyone but yourself.
Using drugs on your kids like this is not acceptable.

I suppose this law also covers cigarettes and alcoholic beverages. Did they test for nicotine? Did they test for her BAC? How about Mary Jane?
Is it bad to do those things while pregnant? Yes, most all medical professionals agree that whatever you put into your system will also be in the system of the fetus. Like pickles and ice cream.
Greasy foods and a high carbohydrate level. Or, tons of sweets. If your fetus can't handle a little meth, is it a viable candidate for person hood?
Detox the new born baby and go on with life. If the Mother hits up the baby on go fast, arrest her and throw her into the slammer. What is happening today in health care is people are starting to refuse to give bodily fluids to the medical staff because they know that instead of looking for symptoms of ailment, they are simply being drug tested.

In truth: you're better off birthing a child at home or just having an abortion.
Yet at the same time I've heard (supposedly - from the sources of mothers) that tobacco addicts are sometimes told NOT to quit while pregnant because it would cause undo stress which could impact the baby.
A screaming comes across the sky.

Don't get me wrong. Every thing about Meth is wrong and bad. That's the consequence of the failed "war on drugs" But is this a new way around due process in the name of profit?
