First woman to be charged under controversial new laws prohibiting women taking drugs during pregnancy

article-0-1F9F6B1F00000578-472_634x444A 26-year-old woman has become the first to be charged under controversial new laws in Tennessee that make it illegal to take drugs while pregnant, after both her and her baby tested positive for methamphetamine. Mallory Loyola was arrested as she was discharged from hospital on Tuesday, having welcomed her daughter last Sunday, later admitting to police she smoked meth just days before giving birth. The new law – introduced in the state earlier this month – states that a woman can be ‘prosecuted for assault for the illegal use of a narcotic drug while pregnant’, according to WATE-TV. Officials are hoping the assault charges – and now Loyola’s arrest – will stop women abusing drugs during their pregnancy, however opposers say it will only cultivate troubled women not seeking proper prenatal care.
