Woman dies after hospital has her arrested for ‘noncompliance’

The war on drugs claims another victim. Rather than actually treat a woman who was in so much pain she couldn’t lie down for an exam, the emergency at a Pauls Valley, Oklahoma hospital instead had her arrested for having two pain pills that were not her prescription.

She died two hours later of a ruptured ectopic pregnancy.

Jamie Lynn Russell is dead but the war on women and war on drugs continues unharmed, unabated and unthinkingly.

    RIP Jaimie Lynn. What a waste of a young life.

    And in contrast, the ER doctor joked that the painkillers, prescribed to me, were damn good ones. No rebuke about using someone else’s drugs.
