    In short, the Alabama passed a law designed to punish parents who raise children around meth labs - the law was never intended to extend to the womb - as evidenced by the fact it doesn't say so in the law and the legislature has repeadetly rejected attempts to define a fetus as a person - yet the court has decided to intepret the law in a manner that could allow up to a LIFE SENTENCE for something so ridiculously minor as taking a hit of marijuana while pregnant - even if you don't know you're pregnant!


    Why pass a law defining a fetus as a person when the judicial activists court can do it for you?

    2 questions.

    WTF if wrong with Alabama?

    Why are the fathers not being charged, only the mothers?
