    Unless you're just going to leave mother and baby out in the snow to die, we're going to need some sort of solution. Everybody knows it's disgusting. What do you do with the mother and the baby when it happens?

    And sorry about my mess of an unreadable post. Can't even see what I type.

    I completely agree with the sentiment, but men suffer the same fate. Incarceration for drug addicts does not fix any our problems. If we were to follow the fine example of Portugal, we could eliminate most of our prison population, save lives, increase American productivity and more. The problem is, no one wants to appear weak on crime. Who's fault is this? Uneducated, deluded voters who have no clue about what they really need and would not know true leadership if it crawled up their ass.

    So, YOUR solution is more of the same proven failure of a response, because It feels good to punish these bad, evil women?

    Here's the thing, though. If it does not actually fix the problem, it's like seeing a baby writhe in pain and doing nothing to help. It starts with us, as long as we don't demand real solutions, we continually end up with tough talk and a steadily spiraling out of control drug problem.
