Women’s Right to Use Meth While Pregnant Defended By ACLU

Women’s Right to Use Meth While Pregnant Defended By ACLU

I am not even sure where to start on this one. Has anyone in the history of EVER said , wow, I hope that my baby is big strong and healthy. Here’s my prenatal vitamins, a glass of milk, oh and let’s not forget the METH. This is someone who clearly makes great judgment calls.

From Breitbart:

“This view of pregnant women essentially means that as soon as you’re carrying a fertilized egg, you’ve lost your medical privacy and your right to make medical decisions,” Paltrow said. “But all matters concerning pregnancy are health care matters. Pregnancy, like other health issues, should be addressed through the public health system and not through the criminal punishment system or the civil child welfare system.”

The ACLU of Tennessee is planning to challenge the law and has issued a call for plaintiffs.

“By focusing on punishing women rather than promoting healthy pregnancies, the state is only deterring women struggling with alcohol or drug dependency from seeking the pre-natal care they need,” the group’s legal director Thomas Castelli said in a statement. “This dangerous law unconstitutionally singles out new mothers struggling with addiction for criminal assault charges.”

ACLU

And hey, ACLU? I don’t need or want you speaking for me, or my gender. Most women I know would rather speak out for themselves than have you step in for them. We don’t need a law protecting unborn children from the mothers modified in any way- thanks. Mind your own business, not mine.
