“A large hospital group with labor rooms in Massachusetts and New Hampshire will no longer immediately report to state welfare agencies when a baby is born with drugs in its system.

Mass General Brigham announced Tuesday it is revamping its policies regarding pregnant people with substance abuse disorders, a condition which the hospital said disproportionately affects Black people and does not alone signal child abuse or neglect.”

“Disproportionately affects”

That has got to be the greatest euphemism of the past 100 years. Talk about the soft bigotry of lowered expectations. No personal responsibility. They are “affected” by their choices.
 
You hear this Massachusetts moms? When your brain-addled crotchfruit grow up and kill your ass, you can blame the system, you fuckin' dopers.
