Earlier this week, DML published a report stating the number of babies born addicted to drugs is skyrocketing in the U.S. Today, we bring you the story of a 28 year-old pregnant woman who appeared on Dr. Phil last week.
In the clip below you will see a heartbreaking example of why so many babies are being born addicted to drugs.
Dr. Phil had his cameras follow a young pregnant girl and her mother searching the streets in an attempt to buy heroin.
Her name is Kaitlin. She is a single mother of two, and she is 6-months pregnant. She admitted to Dr. Phil that the baby inside her has been exposed to heroin since its conception.
In the clip, Kaitlin pleads with her mother to let her leave their home to search for heroin in the homeless section of town. Distraught and unwilling to let her daughter undergo heroin withdrawals, Kaitlin’s mother agrees to take her. Desperate that Kaitlin will venture out the next day in the same area of town, the mother accesses a nearby ATM to help fund her daughter’s perilous addiction for more than one day.
The mother later tells Dr. Phil she has no excuse other than she didn’t know how else to help Kaitlin. While being interviewed by Dr. Phil, Kaitlin is asked if she will need another hit soon. Kaitlin says, “yes.”
You can watch the the clip below. Warning: this is a heartbreaking story. Sadly, it’s becoming the norm in America.
