Should Teen Mom Amber Portwood Get Joint Custody of Baby Leah?

When it comes to Amber Portwood, people tend to have strong opinions.

This feisty reality starlet made more than a few enemies when she was filmed hitting and choking her baby daddy on Teen Mom, and things only went downhill from there.

Amber was arrested, went to rehab, tried to commit suicide, and was recently hauled to the clink again for prescription drug abuse and probation violation.

Needless to say, Amber lost custody of her daughter, Leah, somewhere in between the drunken iHop fights and ill-advised tattoos — but does she deserve a second chance now that she's out of jail?

Amber's currently under house arrest at her grandparents' home, and according to her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, she sees Leah for occasional supervised visits.

Since being out of jail, Amber's tried her hardest to remain clean and sober, and so far she's done a stellar job. But at what point will she be stable enough to secure joint custody of Leah?

Should Amber fight for her rights straight away, or is she still too unhinged?
