No More Children

Drug addict ordered to stop having children until she can care for them

A family court judge in Rochester, New York, has ordered a drug-addicted woman to have no more children until she proves she can look after the seven she already has. It's the second time Judge Marilyn O'Connor has made such a ruling. The 31-year-old mother had already lost custody of her children, ranging in age from eight months to 12 years. Three of them tested positive for cocaine at birth. In a similar ruling last March, Judge O'Connor ordered a drug-addicted, homeless mother of four to refrain from bearing children until she won back care of her children. The decision, the first of its kind in New York, is being appealed.
