with all the people wanting to adopt children this is an insane act. I hope the other children are removed from this house to assure the safety of the children.

Something is rather strange with this story.

I'm elated that the baby wasn't hurt. I'm confused though as to why a mother staying with her ill baby would try to kill it in a hospital with tons of people around?

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark...

actually in the nursery it's extemely quiet and deserted . my one daughter was 3 months premature and 98% of the time when i went to see her i was in the room alone . once in awhile a nurse would come in and ask if i needed anything . they show you where everything is ,diapers ,formula....then let you have some nice quiet time with your bundle of joy .

That poor child. With the way our justice system is the mother will try to get off on some mental illness plea and get some psychiatric evaluations then be released with no punishment. Her other children aren't safe.

That is horrible, I have to agree with the person that mentioned that there are people just wanting to adopt babies. I had cervical cancer and I am unable to conceive, my husband and I have looked into adoption...but it's so difficult, because the parents have to terminate their parental rights. Not knowing this young lady's background, some women have baby's to get financial assistance, but there is something mentally wrong with her. The state should step in an terminate her rights as a parent to this child.

That's easy to figure out. As a writer, I think like one.

She wanted to kill the baby but didn't want to be blamed. If the baby died in a hospital, the hospital would be blamed. Or so she thought.
