S.799 - Protecting Our Infants Act of 2015
HHS must publish a report that includes:
- an assessment of existing research on neonatal abstinence syndrome; an evaluation of the causes, and barriers to treatment, of opioid use disorders among women of reproductive age and recommendations on preventing opioid use disorders in these women;
- an evaluation of, and recommendations on, treatment for pregnant women with opioid use disorders and the effects of prenatal opioid use on infants; and
- an evaluation of the differences in prenatal opioid use between demographic groups and recommendations on reducing disparities [emphasis added].
A curious approach to legislation. Mandated demographic discrimination. I'm sure this will proceed swimmingly.
