Currently there are "no" laws that protect unborn children from drug exposure. If you would like to see this changed - PLEASE CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND STATE OFFICIALS. Children are born everyday and fight to survive. They deserve a fighting chance. Please help by making your voices heard in your state. You could save a child's life or prevent serious harm and complications to the unborn child.

It's such a pity that drugs are more important to these women than the most precious gift they can receive in life, which is the blessing of a having a baby. It will be much too late for the drug addicted mothers who have already done so much damage to these helpless little babies to redeem themselves if they do decide to clean up their acts. Life is so short and children grow up so fast, if you blink, you will miss out on moments that you can never get back. Women can only bear children for a short time during life, and once that time has run out, there's no more chances. If you're addicted to drugs and find out you're pregnant, be a REAL woman and stop using because you're not just damaging your own body, you're doing unknown, irreversible damage to this innocent little life that has no choice but to continue growing inside of you. Please, don't put your precious little baby through the agony of withdraws, give them a safe and loving start at life. The rewards will be greater than any high you will experience from drugs.

My sister has had multiple children taken away, a few aborted, and one on the way. She has been an addict since the age of 14. We have tried to get her to rehab but Louisiana will only hold someone if they are suicidal. She is very manipulative and can "act' normal when needed. She's had seizures, black outs, you name it. Her first son had a 2 vessel cord which means its only getting a percentage of nutrients needed... her current pregnancy is the same. BECAUSE OF DRUGS! I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO!? Their should absolutely be a law protecting the unborn.

What about the Travis Law? it was established in RI sometime between 1988 and 1993. I know this becase I was Travis' Mother. I was a 20 year old crack head who went on binges both during and after my pregnancy. There were times I didn't remember my own name and my child, only 7 weeks old died, as a result of my drug abuse. There were no laws in place at the time of my sons death. Now RI has laws in place that allow hospitals to do random drug screens on pregnant women. A positive screen will lead to a 72 hour X party hold on the newborn at the time of birth. Even if a doctor feels there is reason to believe the pregnant mother has used drugs but did not show during screening,(ie short labor, low birth weight, etc), The law allows the doctor to perform tests on the placenta to confirm suspicions of drug use during pregnancy.
I am not proud of my past but I take comfort in knowing my sons death is saving the lives of children every day. I am a canged person and I believe all pregnant women should be tested for drug abuse. It isn't fair to the unborn human being to be subjected to the abuse. Think of the child moving and growing even smiling inside of you and get help.
All states need to adopt this policy. And I am willing to help. If you are serious about making changes using the foundation of the Travis law feel free to contact me at [email protected]
