(Scroll down for video) A judge has ruled that a woman is now allowed to get pregnant until she regains custody of her children, who were removed from her custody due to drugs, alcohol, and prostitution, according to court documents in New York.

Family Court Judge Patricia Gallaher of Rochester, said that she prohibited Brandy F. from becoming pregnant in order to improve her chances for being rehabilitated.

Brandy admitted in court that she is addicted to drugs and alcohol. The woman’s four kids have been removed from her home due to her prostitution and use of drugs.

Gallaher ruled that the mother is guilty of neglect and cannot have custody of her children or have any additional kids. Several months ago, Brandy gave birth to a baby who was addicted to drugs.

The baby was removed from her care as soon as the child exhibited withdrawal symptoms. Two other kids were removed from her care because they were born with a drug addiction.

A 16-year-old boy was removed from her care after police learned that he had access to hypodermic needles. Brandy admitted to using cocaine and alcohol while pregnant with her baby.

Brandy’s attorney vowed to appeal the no pregnancy order, saying that the judge lacks the authority to ban a woman from having children.
