Last week's article on the new Arkansas law relating to pregnancy and drug use implied that the law is now part of the state's criminal code. While the law certainly has a highly punishing effect, it actually is part of the state's civil code.

One of our two articles last week on the advocacy and legal developments in Atlanta in the aftermath of the Kathryn Johnston tragedy reported Mrs. Johnston's age as 88, while the other reported it as 92. Both of these numbers have appeared multiple times in the mainstream media, but we intended to report the age as 92 in both articles.
