Police: Baby dies after intoxicated mom passes out while breastfeeding

By: Laura Greene, WMAR.com
HAGERSTOWN, MD -

A 2-month-old infant in Maryland is dead after her mother passed out while breastfeeding the baby while intoxicated, police said.

Police arrested Yadina Indira Morales, 22, of Hagerstown, Maryland and charged her with manslaughter, second-degree child abuse and numerous other charges in connection to the death of the baby girl.

Just before 7 a.m. Saturday, Washington County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the 11200 block of Scarlet Drive for a report of an unresponsive infant.

Police say Morales was highly intoxicated and lost consciousness while trying to nurse the baby. The unresponsive child was found under her mother’s body.

The baby was taken to Meritus Medical Center where she was pronounced dead. Her body was taken to the Office of the Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy.

Morales was taken to Meritus Medical Center and later to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office for booking and processing.

She was released on $100,000 bond from the detention center Saturday, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Calling Republicans pure evil is a bit of stretch, Homer. Especially when Republicans anticipated this was going to happen from the beginning and were just waiting for it to happen.
This administration needed no help from anyone to screw up this debacle from its inception. And it hasn't even started yet.
Hope you can handle it.
I disagree. Rightwingers are pure evil, they will fck you over any chance they get.

'You Also Can't Keep Your Doctor
I had great cancer doctors and health insurance. My plan was cancelled. Now I worry how long I'll live.

Everyone now is clamoring about Affordable Care Act winners and losers. I am one of the losers.

My grievance is not political; all my energies are directed to enjoying life and staying alive, and I have no time for politics. For almost 7 yrs I have fought and survived stage4 gallbladder cancer, with a 5-yr survival rate of less than 2% after diagnosis. I am a determined fighter and extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been canceled effective Dec 31.

My choice is to get coverage through the government health exchange & lose access to my cancer doctors, or pay much more for insurance outside the exchange (the quotes average 40%-50% more) for the privilege of starting over with an unfamiliar insurance company and impaired benefits.

Countless hours searching for non-exchange plans have uncovered nothing that compares well with my existing coverage and my greatest frustration is Covered California, the state's ACA health-insurance exchange & suposedly 1 of the best such exchanges in the country. After 4 wks of researching plans on the website, talking directly to government counselors, insurance companies & medical providers, my insurance broker & I are as confused as ever.

Time is running out and we still don't have a clue how to best proceed.

2 things have been essential in my fight to survive stage-4 cancer. The first are doctors & health teams in CA and TX: at the medical center of the UC, San Diego, and its Moores Cancer Center; Stanford University's Cancer Institute; & the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

The 2nd element essential to my fight is a UHHealthcare PPO health-insurance policy.

Since March '07 UH has paid $1.2M to help keep me alive & it has never once questioned any treatment or procedure recommended by my medical team. The company pays a fair price to the doctors & hospitals on time and is responsive to the emergency treatment requirements of late-stage cancer. Its caring people in the claims office have been readily available to talk to me & my providers.

But in January, UH sent me a letter announcing that they were pulling out of the individual CA market. The company suggested I look to Covered California starting in Oct.

You would think it would be simple to find a health-exchange plan that allows me, living in San Diego to continue to see my primary oncologist at Stanford Univ & my primary care doctors at the Univ of CA, San Diego. Not so. UCSD has agreed to accept only 1 Covered CA plan—a very restrictive Anthem EPO Plan. EPO stands for exclusive provider organization, which means the plan has a small network of doctors & facilities and no out-of-network coverage except for emergencies. Stanford accepts an Anthem PPO plan but it is not available for purchase in San Diego (only Anthem HMO & EPO plans are available in San Diego).

So if I go with a health-exchange plan I must choose between Stanford & UCSD. Stanford has kept me alive—but UCSD has provided emergency & local treatment support during wretched periods of this disease & it is where my primary-care doctors are.

Before the ACA, health-insurance policies could not be sold across state lines; now policies sold on the Affordable Care Act exchanges may not be offered across county lines.

What happened to the president's promise, "You can keep your health plan"? Or to the promise that "You can keep your doctor"? Thanks to the law, I have been forced to give up a world-class health plan. The exchange would force me to give up a world-class physician.

For a cancer patient, medical coverage is a matter of life & death. Take away people's ability to control their medical-coverage choices and they may die. I guess that's a highly effective way to control medical costs. Perhaps that's the point.

In fact, Homer, even democrats were waiting for this debacle to happen.

So don't blame Republicans. They were innocent bystanders who tried to save us and got blamed for doing so.

It's your fellow Democrats who want to do what Republicans tried to do. Some are even saying it's time for both sides to come together to fix the problem they, themselves, created.

Only now do they want Republicans to bail them out.
So blaming them has become passé.

Not to mention a friend and classmate of Michelle Obama from her Princeton days is a vice president for the company we paid to write the software they stole for the ObamaKare site.

Consistency is the coincidence of similar events.
Michelle Obama was placed on "court ordered inactive status" by the Illinois Supreme Court due to an insurance fraud case.
Michelle Obama's classmate from Princeton was a vice president for the company that stole the software we paid them to write.
That is consistent.

Obama:'I Want To Put The Fear Of God In All Of You' Mission Accomplished!! But how sick is this:

ObamaCare cost her the health insurance Obama repeatedly promised she could keep, and how ObamaCare's alternative plans don't cover the doctors and facilities that have kept her alive!!

The White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer fired off a dismissive tweet that basically blames her for picking the wrong insurance!!

Unfortunately for you, the only ones doing the screwing and lying and stabbing in the back are on your side of the fence.

Obamacare is screwing millions of Americans without insurance after being lied to and the exchanges are stabbing them in the back.

How can you deny that?

This will not go over well for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner.

According to the new book “Double Down,” in which journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann chronicle the 2012 presidential election, President Barack Obama told his aides that he’s “really good at killing people” while discussing drone strikes.

Peter Hamby of The Washington Post reported the nugget in his review of the book.

The claim by the commander-in-chief is as indisputable as it is grim.

Obama oversaw the 2009 surge in Afghanistan, 145 Predator drone strikes in NATO’s 2011 Libya operations, the May 2012 raid that killed Osama bin Laden, and drone strikes that killed leader of the Pakistani Taliban leader and a senior member of the Somali-based militant group al-Shabab this week.

His administration also expanded the drone war: There have been 326 drone strikes in Pakistan, 93 in Yemen, and several in Somalia, compared to a total of 52 under George Bush.

Two of those strikes killed American-born al-Qaeda propagandist Anwar al-Awlaki and his American-born 16-year-old son within two weeks.

Under Obama U.S. drone operators began practicing “signature strikes,” a tactic in which targets are chosen based on patterns of suspicious behaviour and the identities of those to be killed aren’t necessarily known.(The administration counts all “military-age males” in a strike zone as combatants.)

Furthermore, the disturbing trend of the “double tap”— bombing the same place in quick succession and often hitting first responders — has become common practice.

Needless to say, a lot of innocent people have been killed.

Obama has also embraced the expansion of capture/kill missions by Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) after it developed into the primary counterterrorism tool of the Bush administration.

One JSOC operator told investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill, author of “Dirty Wars: The World Is A Battlefield,” that operations became
“harder, faster, quicker with the full support of the White House” under Obama.

Scahill, who also made a “Dirty Wars” documentary, told NBC News that Obama will “go down in history as the president who legitimized and systematized a process by which the United States asserts the right to conduct assassination operations around the world.”

So it is true that President Obama is “really good at killing people,” but he has demonstrated that is not necessarily noble.
