A woman's body is hers to do with as she pleases. If she wants to consume meth and drink heavily while pregnant, that is her right.

This is where prosecutors know more about health and cause of death than the medical examiner... or, rwing Wally World.

I'm not sure who needs a beating the judge who convicted her or the politicians who created this law.

It was a miscarriage not a crime.

When Phestus bangs one out looking at photos of Steve Bannon is it attempted murder?

Box said the possession of meth didn't cause the death

Is possession of meth a crime?

there isn't a law that makes it illegal to consume banned substances

Um, if the substance is banned, isnt illegal to have it?

She chose to do the drug while pregnant. And you liberals are just overlooking that. That's how far our culture has sunk.

Let's review:
What's a crack baby, Boaz? What's Fetal Alcohol Syndrome? Drug use while pregnant is nothing new.
How do we get rid of crack babies, do rich people or poor people have crack babies?

Do you think punishing this one is going to somehow keep the next one off meth? Is that really what you think happens?
I think giving her a handout is going to be more effective at keeping the next kid alive.

Or is that not worth it to you>

I think you're the one overlooking it, Boaz. By focusing on punishing a criminal, and doing nothing to prevent the tragedy.
You say it's not the government's job to prevent a tragedy.

Well why not?
After all, that's why you want abortion illegal.

Miscarriage (also called early pregnancy loss) is when a baby dies in the womb (uterus) before 20 weeks of pregnancy. For women who know they're pregnant, about 10 to 15 in 100 pregnancies (10 to 15 percent) end in miscarriage. Most miscarriages happen in the first trimester before the 12th week of pregnancy.

Round them up and drop them off in prison.

" Round them up and drop them off in prison."

"Is that a menstrual pad or a murder scene?"

Any Christians still remember forgiveness?
Leave the judgement for the lord ( if one exists)

Parents are alot like a lottery system... some people get loving, compassionate, capable parents... others kids don't even live until birth.

Absolutely. You just wouldn't see it being covered in the media or spreading on Twitter.

Got any examples of this happening to white women?

The exact same situation? No Snoofy I sure don't. I wouldn't even know about this case had it not been picked up on MSN and trending on Twitter.

Can you prove race played a part in the charges and conviction?

I'm working a case right now where a white mom had her child taken by state and put in foster care because she tested positive for marijuana when the child was born.
