Finally a victory for Theresa Hernandez

After almost five years in jail for having a still birth, Theresa Hernandez has finally been released to a addiction treatment center and her sentence reduced today. Although there is no medical evidence to prove that meth use causes stillbirths, Theresa accepted a plea bargain last year for murder. She should have never been placed in jail.

It was long fight to get to this point, congratulations to the National Advocates for Pregnant Women, Theresa's attorneys, the Oklahoma physicians who spoke so eloquently on her behalf and the many supporters who showed up to support Theresa today. Our thoughts are with you Theresa...
