I think this is awful and i think we should be able to put these women in jail..I think at the end of every pregnancy they test the mother for drugs and alchol for the past 9 months

yea and if you want my opinion,go to the forum, POLL:Should smokers be allowed to smoke around others? really pitiful statement i think, but its your turn to voice your opinion. what do you think? this person is really troubled and needs all the help and support they can get at this moment in life!really sad and really scary too! to think this childish,self-centered and selfish person is thinking the way that they are. its sad because they think they have all the answers.they have no idea what they are getting ready to wake up to.and i for one thinks this person really needs alot of help and THERAPY because this rude awakening this person is about to have will be a loud one! just pray that this immature person soon grows up and accepts the resposibility of their actions because so far,they are doing a poor,POOR job of it. GOD BLESS AND HELP THIS PERSON FOR WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE.a very wonderful thing called LIFE...

If you are pregnant, and go to the doctor at WCH, they do a drug test. If you test positive, the social worker comes to talk with the woman, and if you test positive twice, they notify the DHHR.

i think with all the young people on drugs it wouldn't hurt to drug test all the pregnant ones. It's bad enough that they use drugs, they should not put an innocent child in the situation of having drug addicts as parents. The dhhr should be notified if any parent fails a drug test.

In SC a woman goes to jail for it, it's considered a felony. She's harming the baby's life.

It's simple ... women like that do not care about their lives so they figure the baby must suffer twofold. Firstly for having a deadbeat mother and secondly for the effects he or she will suffer.

Also, it's easier to get a check for the baby if there's something wrong with it.

Women in WV have the highest rate of continuing to smoke while pregnant than the rest of the US. The rate is 4% higher. This is really sad and people wonder why they call us dumb hillbillies.

SO WHAT DOES ONE DO? REPORT IT TO THE DOCTOR WHILE SHE IS PREGNANT? WHAT WILL HE DO? SHE IS DUE ANYTIME. I SERIOUSLY NEED ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS AND SOME OF YOU SMART PEOPLE OUT THERE SHOULD KNOW THOSE ANSWERS. P L E A S E.

I would go to the doctor and tell him and then I would go to the DHHR and talk to a social worker.

If they deliver the baby at WCH, they do a drug test on the baby, if the baby tests positive, the DHHR comes and usually takes the baby.

No joke, last week in USA Today, it said that the percentage of women in McDowell county who smoke when pregnant was something over 50 percent, the highest in the country I believe.

Gryphon, see the "I hate West By God Virginia" thread. I think you're being accused of being IH8WV.

P.S. Meet me at the Dirty Sock Diner for coffee afterwards, OK?

That explains it! Good grief, I hadnt even looked at that thread, the title didnt interest me. Well, Im sure anyone who has posted with me for any length of time realizes that I am NOT that person. I love my home state, and one of the best things about the part of SC I live in is that we still have mountains, so I feel at home.
