After recklessly consuming an "everything" bagel from Dunkin' Donuts the day before the birth of her daughter, a Pennsylvania mother had her newborn baby taken away by the Lawrence County Children and Youth Services (LCCYS).
Reportedly, Jameson Hospital, where Isabella Rodriguez was born on April 27, has a policy of testing expectant mothers' urine for illegal drugs and reporting positive results to the LCCYS, even without any additional evidence that the baby is in danger of neglect or abuse. LCCYS, in turn, has a policy of seizing such babies from their homes based on nothing more than the test result.
As Isabella's parents Elizabeth Mort and Alex Rodriguez discovered, Jameson Hospital sets the cutoff level for its opiate test so low that it can be triggered by the poppy seeds found on the bagel.
