Pain Clinics: In Florida 2000 Infants Born With Birth Defects Each Year From Prenatal Alcohol Use... Where's the Outrage and Task Force?
Date:2/20/2012

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Feb. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Florida Society of Pain Management Providers (www.Flspmp.org) feels it is vital to set the factual record straight in light of the mass deception used to foment a hysteria driven war on pain medications that now is threatening the health and welfare of Florida's chronic pain patients. Politicians, law enforcement and many in the media continually reinforce this hysteria with purported "facts" drawn from misleading or false statistics.

The latest hysteria driven absurdity is the reference to the drug "addicted" newborn.  Although a headline grabbing assertion, the simple fact is that no newborn has ever been born "addicted" to pain medications or any other drug.  The use of the term "addicted" is solely used by law enforcement and politicians to inflame the witch hunt.  While the use of alcohol, illicit drugs or the non-medically use of Rx medications by an expectant mother is certainly dangerous to the health and safety of a newborn, the notion that a child is born addicted to drugs is false.

Based upon the false assertion, Manatee County, FL. has proposed a pain clinic ordinance that would require all women to be pregnancy tested before being prescribed pain medications.  However, bars and liquor stores can sell alcohol to any woman pregnant or not without restriction.  A woman in Manatee County will now be forced to pay an additional $300 a year for pain care solely because of her gender.  The absurdity is compounded by the fact that Manatee's ordinance exempts the largest prescribers of pain medications…….A TRULY ABSURD and embarrassing special interest government response. The misguided belief that a physician's training in one field over another makes them more ethical is simply nonsensical especially with the history of physician's arrests and prosecutions. If Ma
