Wisconsin Fetal Protection Law Hit With Legal Challenge
MILWAUKEE — MILWAUKEE (AP) ā€” A pregnant Wisconsin woman is challenging the state’s fetal protection law after she was confined in a drug treatment center, despite what she says is no evidence that she was still using drugs.

The lawsuit filed Sept. 27 in federal court in Milwaukee says 28-year-old Alicia Beltran was sent to a private drug treatment facility in Appleton after telling medical and social workers that she had overcome a painkiller addiction. She rejected suggestions that she continue taking a drug for painkiller dependency. Days later, Beltran was arrested and eventually taken to a drug treatment center where she was held for more than two months despite passing a drug test.

The New York Times reports she was released earlier this month after the lawsuit was filed on her behalf.
