          Pregnant Heroin Addict Says ‘I’d Rather Feed My Drug Habit Than My Unborn Child’


          November 11, 2016

          “I’ve been prostituting on and off for about three years to support my habit,” admits Niki, who says she tried heroin for the first time seven years ago as a freshman in college. Now, she says she’s homeless, addicted, and just weeks away from giving birth.
