    I think all new n all ready moms should be tested for drugs its enough child abuse going on why hurt a child that u feel moving inside you with any kind of drugs it should be made a law to test them.

    Yes Testing should be conducted but only for substances that could harm the child. Hard core drug like Heroin, Cocaine & Crack should be a major concern & treated while parenting is heavily supervised. by child protective services.

    The law of unintended consequences suggests that the women targeted by these tests will stop going to hospitals to have their babies.
