This week discussion forum requires you to answer the following questions:
2. Should mothers that use drugs during pregnancy face criminal prosecution?
3. Would the chances of prosecution keep pregnant women from seeking prenatal care and/or delivering the baby in a hospital setting?
Instructions for the second part: Below you will find a link to a true story about a young woman named Jennifer Johnson. http://www.nytimes.com/1992/07/24/news/mother-cleared-of-passing-drug-to-babies.html
Below you will find a link to another story where the National Institutes of Health released a study that showed that maternal cocaine use was not as bad for babies. In the second link, the New York Times provided additional support to the study.
