New Jersey residents will be interested to hear of a woman who was faced with the choice of whether or not to continue taking anti-depression medication after learning that she was pregnant with twins. She had a prescription for Zoloft, and if she stopped taking the drug, she felt she would have an especially difficult time dealing with the pregnancy. Knowing how bad her depression could be, she also feared she wouldn't be able to properly care for her newborns if she stopped taking the medication.

A mother in New Jersey took her 3-year-old son to a dentist for a routine procedure.

The child was later pronounced dead at a New Jersey hospital, and the dentist who gave the little boy anesthetic is now under investigation for medical negligence.
