I would like to know why every woman that has used illegal drugs while pregnant isn't being charged. The mother of my grandson admitted to using cocaine while pregnant and NOTHING happened to her NOTHING!!

Good. I think that every woman who gives birth should be tested and charged with child abuse if they are using drugs while pregnant. If they do it to themselves, fine. To do this to a defencless child is unfair

I cant imagine doing that to a child ... The old verbiage "You are what you eat" doubly applies to Pregnant women .. Your Child is what you put in your system!!..

Perfect candidate for sterilization and she needs to give up all parental rights and just move on ...

Well, the saying goes "loose lips, sink ships". She should have just kept her mouth closed about it. But this brings up another issue. If they can charge her for child abuse for using cocaine while the childs in the womb, what about mothers who smoke cigarettes or booze it up? This is just as bad (probably worse) for the child! Yet law enforcement and child protective services does nothing about it. Also, it seems now law enforcement considers a "fetus" to be alive in the womb and can therefore charge this woman with child abuse, yet law enforcement can never see fit to ever bring up charges of MURDER to women that have abortions? What a joke this is.

I have to agree wih Jugarum on this one. Its time to take a stand is a fetus alive or not? I say it is but thats just my opinon.

If the child is harmed during pregnancy .. the mother CAN and DOES get charged with MURDER ...

Then why can a doctor abort a child without being convicted of murder? Not saying she is right by any stretch.

G-Oliver, you sort of proved my point with that link. Law enforcement has the gumption to charge a woman with murder (or in the other case, child abuse) because she used cocaine and had a stillborn child, yet they look the other way and don't charge women for aborting their children. Same outcome, different method! To me this is a double-standard.

Every woman should be steralized until they are of a certain age, iq level, and meet some sort of financial level. Lets keep the dumb and lazy from abusing the system and harming their children

Thomas,
Your comment makes absolutely no sense at all. If every woman is sterilized until they reach all of your prerequisites of becoming a mother, there wouldn't be any mothers. Sterilization is permanent.......DUH!!!!! With all due respect, with a comment like that, it's of my professional opinion as a woman that you should have been aborted at birth. THAT would keep the dumb and lazy from abusing our systems.

Thomas, that's just ignorant. It's obvious you're blind, deaf and dumb. You've also managed to make an outstanding case for castration! Good job, troll.

Women that use drugs during pregnancy should be charged with child abuse BUT if you look at it that way ( and we should) why arent women who have abortions charged with murder? YOU CANT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS

Stop you’re pissing and moaning just because I used wrong terminology lets say instead some sort of birth control. By dumb and lazy i meant the people on wellfare and of course the iq level and financial status would not be high just at that right level so that they can afford the child. OH most of all you people have no sense of humor

Okay, Thomas...whatever you say....but please say what you mean and mean what you say. Okay? Honey, we only read it the way you wrote it so if you don't want us to take it the wrong way then like I said "say what you mean and mean what you say". As far as a sense of humor goes....I have one of the best sense of humor there is but I fail to see what is so funny about this topic. Therefore, I can only surmize that you must have a warped sense of humor.

Michael,
I love your wording on this....SPAY? That is funny but I think a better word would be sterilize. But I know exactly what you mean and couldn't agree more with you. She's a poor excuse for a human being let alone a mother. She should be charged with child abuse, attempted murder (could have been fatal to the fetus)and court ordered to be sterilized. Then after all of that should have her dam a&& kicked good. Women that do things like that infuriate me.

To consider abortion murder is really a matter of combining church and government. Well, we can't do that now, can we? We can take God out of our schools and off of our money so we definitely can't have Him interfering with our laws on abortion. They can say that a fetus is a living human being and if someone kills a pregnant woman and in the process kills that fetus, then they are charged with double homicide. However, they legalized abortion because they considered an anti-abortion law was a matter of religious principles. They feel that women should have the say-so over their bodies not the government or church. This is where we enter into a very gray area. I would certainly think that if they can say that a fetus is a living being that abortion should be considered murder, also. And the mother & doctor should be charged with homicide. But unfortunately, our wonderful lawmakers don't see it that way. And I consider it double standards as well.

Awww, Jugarum....maybe we shouldn't be so hard on poor Thomas....he just doesn't know how to say what he means and mean what he says!! lol And I can't believe he has the audacity to tell us we need to get a sense of humor!!! A sense of humor about what? Abortion or using cocaine while pregnant?!!! He definitely has a WARPED sense of humor or perhaps he just lacks in brains.

If any woman that has a baby and blood test proves that the mom is on drugs I think she should never see that child again and go straight to jail. I feel that anyone who has a abortion is murdering a baby as well. The law really sucks when it comes to protecting the babies. A few cases will not apply, but most woman that aren't using birth control and men should use birth contol as well, have sex, they KNOW they may get pg, so in most cases it was NO accident and our law has made it so easy to just run out and abort a baby. SAD!SAD.I know we are coming down hard on the female, but what about the fools who get these drugged up woman pg? Should the bear any responsibilty? They probably did drugs along with the female.
