Our Bodies, Our Crimes: The Policing of Women’s Reproduction in America, a new book by Jeanne Flavin, NAPW's Board President
Read the "starred review" of Ms. Flavin's book in Publishers Weekly. Please note: Scroll down on linked page to the 7th entry to read the review.
Thanks to Podio we keep work simple.
Please watch the following video from Retro Report's "From Crack Babies to Oxytots: Lessons Not Learned" and hear NAPW explain how the misinformation and panic about "crack babies" in the 1980's has been reignited and how similar misinformation and panic about pregnant women who use opioids is being used to justify increased government control, surveillance, and punishment of pregnant women.
Because we believe people can learn lessons from both panics, please join us in Tennessee from October 1 - 3, 2015 for an unprecedented conference: Pregnant Women, Drug Use, and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome: Research & Policies that Support Mothers, Babies, and Families.
