They should be charged with child abuse. In Canada where I live, it’s illegal to smoke in a vehicle with a minor, yet there are no laws about subjecting it to nine months of smoke while pregnant. I think laws need to be changed and mothers need to not be so selfish with their actions!

I don’t know why they make it illegal to smoke in Canada.
