    I think this is outrageous.

    Morphine is considered safe by the American Academy of Pediatrics. When I read the story and saw she slept the baby I thought she suffocated accidently.

    What does prosecuting a mother who followed medical advice have to do with accountability?

    Two million people barely satisfy -

    Two hundred women watch one woman cry... too late.

    The eyes of honesty can achieve,

    How many millions do we deceive

    Each day?

    I would almost bet she was taking way more than was prescribed. Manslaughter charges would seem more appropriate than murder charges.

    Did you read the story? The police and prosecutor admitted that they have records of all her prescriptions, that she bought them all at the same pharmacy, and that they have absolutely no evidence she abused the drugs. South Carolina sucks for drug laws, you are guilty of possession with intent to sell with over an ounce of marijuana, and under an ounce can still land you in jail for up to a year. Possession of any other drug is a felony offense.

    I think I was being sarcastic regarding a mother's accountability.
    Don't really remember why I typed that LOL.
