Ruth Archer BS: A snip at 200? (sterilizing addicts) (66* d) RE: BS: A snip at 200? (sterilizing addicts) 21 Oct 10


"- but do NOT, as Barbara Harris advocates, criminalize the user or coerce them into sterilization (or less 'safe' forms of contraception) while ignoring causes and treatment"

Any thoughts about what we ought to be doing about all the children born to addicts whose lives are blighted by addiction before they are even born?

This is the issues that everyone seems to be neatly skirting around. While we would all certainly advocate whole-society change and hope and advocate for the day it might happen, more children are being born every day and suffering neglect and abuse because of addiction. What do we do about that, here and now?
