This is so wrong on so many levels. How can a State of Connecticut rip a newborn baby away from a mother all because she ate Poppy Seed danish. I believe the state of Connecticut is overstepping their bounds on this one. Someone should stand up for this mother and take on the state for their ridiculous act of ripping the baby away from the mother all because they believe she’s a drug addict and the mother ate poppy seed danish.
Heck people with common sense should know where Poppy Seeds come from and should have realized that pregnant women should now be eating poppy seed bread. Some should have known better about what a Poppy seed is and how common it is to foods such as a danish. I think someone at Yale New Haven hospital is either incompetent or frankly stupid and retarded to not notice the difference between an opiate and Poppy Seed.
The State of Connecticut should be a shame of themselves and I am calling out the Dept of Child and Family services for pulling such an outlandish and ridiculous stunt here. How dare do they pull a stunt without conducting a proper investigation and not fact checking the poppy seed claim. Someone needs to investigate this and if possible someone should fire those who ripped the newborn away from it’s mother and failing to do their JOBS and not properly investigating the issue.
