It seems to me that the right-to-life activists spend all their political energy trying to protect fetuses, but ignore the right to a healthy life of infants born to drug- and alcohol-addicted mothers.
Many of these infants face a lifelong struggle with both physical and mental impairments because their mothers were unable to obtain pre-natal care and treatment for their addiction.
I recently read that 4,000 San Diego infants are born exposed to drugs or alcohol in 1988, but there are very few residential treatment beds for addicted pregnant women.
Instead of harassing women, doctors and judges who do not share their beliefs, I wonder why they have not spent their political energy in a positive way, by lobbying our legislators to provide treatment centers for all addicted pregnant women and their children.
Or did I miss something?
