"One of the most powerful films ever produced dealing with drug-affected babies."
It's the ugly truth that no one wants to talk about. Yet each year hundreds of thousands of these tiny victims of substance abuse are born to a life of physical, emotional, and psychological problems because their mothers abused alcohol, illicit drugs or even tobacco during their pregnancy.
This is a national disaster that affects all of us.
Noone wants to talk about these million-dollar babies. Unfortunately the costs are huge to support them through childhood through their adult years. Sadly, many of them will wind up in prison—or worse.
Learn about the enormous cost of drug-affected babies, for them, their families, and their community, and what you can do about it.
Whoever you are and whatever your community, you will be drawn in by this deeply moving film. But rather than despair, you will see some simple solutions and see how many people are making a difference.
For too long, this problem has been placed at the feet of the mothers. Who Will Cry for Our Children makes it clear that we hall have a steak in this tragedy. We find out that success - saving our babies - depends on each of us assuming responsibility and becoming part of the solution. Find out how you can help protect these innocent little ones.
DRUG WARS - Who Will Cry for Our Children was written to help anyone who wants to teach about the tiniest victims of substance abuse.
"It gives me great pleasure to offer this statement of support for... Drug Wars: Who Will Cry for Our Children."
