It is a fact that we live in a society that endorses the mass killing of innocent children every day. Why is this case so different? Should this mother not have the right to kill her child? Is it not her choice?
*sarcasm*
I mean had she aborted the child months earlier, well that would have been perfectly ok because... it’s her choice! Perhaps she simply waited too long to decide?!?!?

Now she's facing attempted murder charges? What is wrong with people? Does not one of you see the hypocrisy in this? The fact that so many of you are disturbed by this shows some moral courage to stand up and say something, that there is evil in this... but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Yes this is outrageous, yes she deserves to be put away forever, but how is it different than any other day? I'll leave with this thought, since the start of the Iraq war nearly 7,000,000 babies have been killed because of "mom’s choice". Where's the news coverage for those dead babies and those murderers?

Think about that.

I dont choose to voice where I stand on abortion issues but many feel the difference is no soul till birth. No life till birth. I just dont see where many are going to see this as the same only 7 months later.

This is not an abortion thread.. nor is it a thread on the war.. those are seperate issues. Right to Lifers could find a way to tie abortion into any subject...

<quoted text>Absolutely her familiy has been tring to get her help for years, she left town to live near Dave's family. Now they have had 4 fires, that I know of, in different residences, 2 fires before she left town, some of the fires were in Darien. She reported a former boyfriend of stalking, in Darien, his home town is 70 plus miles away. He was arrested until there wasn't enough evidence, charges were dropped. This is a serious incidence and is should not be made light of, PLEASE no more jokes.
I don't know who you are or how you know any of this information...but check your facts...Dave has had only two wives, and I am one. Yes, he was in a facility, but you made it out to be as though he is a nutcase and that is not the truth. This man is a great father...and thankfully, the State of New York figured that out. He will take good care of HIS daughter and hopefully that psycho stays behind bars where she belongs for the rest of her miserable life!

Did you notice the mother and father had different last names?
When will people realized that it is never a good idea for a single mother to keep her baby instead of giving it up for adoption so it can have a real family
I have been monitoring these comments from time to time just to see if anyone has anything new to say. I can't believe I never saw this before. Before I met my ex husband, which happens to be this child's father, I was a single mother of two. My kids have a great life. And Dave, is still involved in every aspect of their lives.

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.
no she knew she wouldnt get away with it the baby was in the picu and was under 24hr video survalliance with nurses all over constantly the lady is just a crazy crazy psycho who wont get away with it have no fear they wont let her plead insanity she tried.

Like someone said before they should of rammed the pillow down Mitchell's throat. Don't blame it on depression her children are obviously not safe with her or the father. Thank God the child is all right. Mitchell is know way what you would call a "mother". She is pretty pschy to me and should never be able to see her children again!
it cant be blamed on the depression shes crazy and i hope she spends the rest of her life in jail believe me i want nothing more than for her to never see the light of day again but as for the father he is a great father the reason he wasnt in the hospital was because he had two kids at home that he was taking care of he tried to get her to go home and hell stay with her and she wouldnt leave... i still cant believe how or why this happened but dont blame the father hes an amazing father

Mom has a long history of mental illness. she has been treated in several inpatient facilities over the last 3-4 years, they give pills and say be on your way. Now for the father where do you think she met him? Yep, an inpatient facility, they were both patients at the time. He has 3, still married to one, other wives and several other children. The other child to the mother was being raised by a loving family member until marcia took he and left town with her. Marcia herself has a seizure disorder,compulsive lying and possible pyromania. She needs HELP, not criticism from idiots!!

"Loving family member" my big baducha Rahrah has it exactly right! This so called loving family member...wow...would I like to meet her/him! Crazy people that breed raise even crazier people...that whole stinkin family (the psycho egg donor's family) should be in prison. I don't think any of you them know what a "loving family" really is.

The only thing I can hope for is that the other inmates show this maniac what they do with child abusers and the like. Jail is an unforgiving kind of atmosphere and hopefully she gets exactly what she deserves!!! Who knows? Maybe society and the NY taxpayers will get lucky and someone will stick a pillow over her face!

Oh, and for all of you who felt the need to trash the dad...don't be so quick to judge...the baby is now at home with her dad and her FAMILY, the people that love her and cherish her the way she should be. The agencies saw the greatness in David and have given him the honor of raising HIS daughter.

She just wanted to kill her baby whats the big deal? IT IS HER BABY!!!! why do you people keep this shit up? even OBAMA SAYS ITS OK TO KILL A BABY once its outside the womb IF THE MOTHER WANTS IT DEAD! what was she suppose to do? stuff towels in her hole to keep it there until Buckwheat signs the freedom of abortion act ? be serious GET OFF THIS MOTHERS BACK!!!!
This comment is absolutely abominable. I am not an abortion advocate but any rational human being knows there is a difference between an abortion and murder. GET OFF THIS MOTHER'S BACK??? Let me ask you, have you ever looked into the eyes of a child? What about into the eyes of the child in question -- because I have done both. She is one of the most remarkable babies I have ever had the pleasure of being around. Smart, loving, INNOCENT...To think that anyone would advocate what this "egg donor" tried to do to her, let's just say, may the powers that be have mercy on you. Whichever powers you believe in.

Karma has a way of coming back to bite you when you least expect it. I believe Marcia will get hers in the end in one form or another...as for you, what goes around comes around...heaven forbid you should ever have to go through what this child and her FAMILY have endured since all of this transpired. I would never wish that on anyone, but Karma will get you for your putrid thoughts. It's always around the corner and three fold is a horrible thing to have staring you in the face when what you are being returned is hatred, stupidity, and ignorance.

She is nothing more than a low life murdering so and so and somehow, someway, someday...Karma will get her. I can only hope it makes the news just like this so everyone knows.

I really hope she is convicted of everything. I would have to say I am extremely disappointed in the NY judicial system for lowering her charges from attempted murder to felony assault.
25 years is not enough for this piece of garbage -- but then again we can all hope for some good old fashioned vigilante justice, right? What goes around comes around -- give her a pillow and tell her to enjoy it. Maybe a nice blanket party?
All I know is Karma will get her. I just hope it makes her suffer!!!!

Marcia did NOT do this. I know her, and I know that she loves her children with all her heart. the situation has caused her to be in such turmoil that she has twice attempted suicide. this whole situation is one big lie, and the DA is absolutely to blame.

Anyone who would defend this woman is as crazy as she is. Here's an update for you...she plead guilty...GUILTY! And now she is going to jail. Real jail, not a holding center.

As for attempting to commit suicide...too bad her attempt failed.

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.
