Supreme Court - Crack Mothers

NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on today's arguments before the Supreme Court on a hospital that joined with police to test pregnant women for crack cocaine use, and have them arrested. The Medical University of South Carolina defended the practice, saying it was aimed at protecting the health of the fetus. The lawyer for women who sued said the tests were unconstitutional searches.
