If a mother has gone through all of the additional testing that would make it certain they took drugs while pregnant they should be charged with a crime. If this is not for their own good, then it is for the good of the baby. The baby should grow up in a home where they are in a safe, healthy environment. Most of these drugs are already illegal and the mother would be charged for a crime if she was caught with the drugs outside of the hospital. It only makes it worse when was supposed to be caring for life while taking these drugs. I think the fathers should also be tested and charged if they took drugs at the same time too. I believe that there should be a criminal charge on these parents because of concern for the baby’s health, future safety, and the fact that most of these drugs are already illegal.The most important factor in this question is the baby. If the baby is in any way put in danger from the parents doing drugs there should be a criminal charge and the baby should be taken away for its own safety. Drugs can cause numerous health defects in a baby during birth

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
