Have you heard of “Crack Mom?” No? Her case might be one of the most important in the country right now.
A Kentucky woman who the press has dubbed “Crack Mom” faces up to 10 years after pleading guilty to endangering her child’s life by using cocaine during pregnancy, The Kentucky State Journal reports.
But deciding her fate isn’t that simple because the Kentucky Supreme Court heard a similar case in December and a ruling is expected shortly on whether it’s possible to legally abuse a child in the womb.
It’s always amazed me that people look down their nose at women who smoke while pregnant while advocating her right to actually kill her unborn baby.
This case could possibly go all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States and could have a major impact on how the law views the unborn.
