20. This is horrible
A lot of women have stillbirths for a variety of reasons, many not related to negligent behavior on her part. For a woman who wanted her child, an investigation after this event would be rather traumatic. Drug use during pregnancy is certainly a bad idea and often is harmful to the fetus, but the fetus would not have necessarily died from drug use. It isn't like taking methamphetimines is a popular way to give oneself a late term abortion. Even if she was charged in the death, which I don't think she should be, I don't see how it could be anything more than manslaughter. It was not her intention to kill her baby by using drugs.
