How do you feel about the babies born addicted to drugs? I cried.

I saw a video in a class today and there were babies screaming, shaking, crying, rolling around because they "NEEDED" the drugs. What kind of mom would do drugs while pregnant? Why have the baby if you don't care? I cried because it broke my heart that they were in so much pain and it wasn't their choice. They were just born. I don't know if being a mom myself made me more sensitive to the video, but how do you feel about this?

  • Yes. I worked at a hospital and saw this type of thing. It is heart breaking. I know that when a mom goes into the hospital and there is any sign of drugs, they call in DCFS right away.

  • Becoming a mom certainly drove my reactions to stuff like this WAY off the scale

    And they really need to do away with the anon option here, nothing but cowards and bitches use it.

  • burnt crawfish i completely agree. People who don't have something nice to say and always bash others ALWAYS post anon. Why put out your opinion if you can't back it up?!
