Shackled and pregnant: Wis. case challenges \’fetal protection\’ law – U.S. News.

Okay, so lemme get this straight… Basically a human being cannot finish overcoming a pain killer dependency without a doctor seeing it though (and charging money) every step of the way?  On top of that, the fetus apparently is the only one with Constitutional protections of due process. Add that apparently it’s better for a pregnant woman to be in jail instead of in her own home even though she’s done nothing wrong and did not test positive for the drug formerly dependent on. OH! Let’s not forget the involuntary committal to a drug rehab program when she has already overcome the dependency.

That’s only a few of the things wrong with this scenario.
