Earlier this week I wrote an article about the Indiana Attorney General arguing in favor of mandatory drug testing of pregnant women, and the concerns everyone should have, especially considering the state's history of charging pregnant women with crimes.
In a complaint to the Care2 website, under an email that accused my story of being "inaccurate and misleading" an A.G. spokesperson said I was completely wrong. "[C]comments should not be interpreted to imply that he supports mandatory opioid testing of any kind for pregnant women," the office's spokesperson wrote.
But that's not what he said, according to the original report I read in the Indiana Public Media. And it's pretty hard to deny the words in this follow up interview, conducted after the initial report, and which local advocates alerted me to.
