    Mom gives birth while drunk

    Dewey woman accused of giving birth while drunk
    By Tim Hudson

    E-E County Reporter

    A Dewey woman is being held on $30,000 bond after her arrest for allegedly giving birth while intoxicated.

    Melissa Irene Tanner, 37, faces charges of child neglect.

    Reportedly, Tanner gave birth to a baby girl on June 30 who was born with a blood alcohol content close to three times the legal limit set by the Department of Pubic Safety.

    Reports indicate the baby was not breathing upon birth and had to be administered "Narcan" to counteract any narcotics that may have been present in the baby. After an emergency procedure by hospital staff, the child started breathing, reports indicate.

    Tanner reportedly has six other children.

    This is deplorable. Fetal Alcohol Syndrom is tragic for these children.

    Snip:
    ...a friend quoted by cops said that after the baby was born, she asked Tanner what the girl was going to be named. Tanner, the friend told deputies, replied, "Maybe Milwaukee's Best."

    From the article:

    Tanner reportedly has six other children.
    I hope the other 6 kids were taken from her also!

    The affidavit states that Tanner also told hospital staff that she did not know that she was pregnant.
    I guess it is possible she didn't know. She probably stayed in a stupor so much, she never noticed.

    Attending physicians reportedly told deputies that Tanner told them she had been drinking and that she and another individual consumed a case of beer.
    Tanner reportedly told police that she considers herself to be an alcoholic and that she did not consider herself to be drunk at that time. According to the affidavit, she said she was drinking because she was stressed and had been having problems with her in-laws. When asked if she had been intoxicated at anytime during her pregnancy, she reportedly said "maybe a few times." She later said she was intoxicated twice a week during her pregnancy, the affidavit states.
    She drinks half a case of beer, but doesn't consider herself intoxicated. So how can she tell when she is intoxicated? When she is unconcious?

    This alleged mother should have had her tubes tied about 7 kids back!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
