At 16 years old this teen gave birth to a stillborn baby. The baby died because the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck, but the government don’t care that this was the cause of death… Still, she faces life in prison when she needs help; not life in prison. Why? Because there were traces of cocaine in her blood. That is not what killed the baby, it wasn’t smart but I think any drug offender needs help; not punishment… Especially in this case.
But whatever you think of her choice to use cocaine, it’s insane that America’s courts would and CAN send women to prison for a miscarriage.
