New Report Shows Poor Pregnant Women More Likely To Be Drug Tested
Description:Expecting moms in New York are being drug tested in hospitals near low income neighborhoods. But pregnancy advocates are calling the practice racist and discriminatory.
“You cannot tell from a drug test if someone is fit to parent,” said Lynn Paltrow of the National Advocates for Pregnant Women.
More than a dozen pregnancy wards across the city administer a marijuana test, without the mother’s consent.(2:03)
