How could a Mom do this horrible act to her baby? I can't even imagine the pain the baby felt! I DO NOT WANT TO THROW STONES, BUT GOD WILL JUDGE HER ACTIONS. God bless the children!

Actually she did this because she thought her child was possessed by Satan and that the only way to free the child was to cut off her arms. She was a devout Christian. I was following the story when it happened. She thought because her child was crying so much that had Satan possessed her.

Devout Christian "stunned by some people?" I think not. She is sick. Let's cut off her arms and send her to God!!?? She should be labeled a "child offender" and never be allowed to bear children nor be near children. This is depraved behavior.

Why wasn't she on meds prior to the murder of her child, this could have been prevented!
She has 2 other children she is banned from seeing.
Lets hope she stays on her meds so the demonds stay away or we may have a round 2.

She does not deserve to breathe. People who do heinous acts like this should be culled immediately. Their gene pool is detrimentally defunct.

A perfect example of a woman who should have gotten an abortion. This is why it should be legal and in cases like this it should most definitely be a very good option. Yes, adoption is a choice too but who knows what else she could do to her self while pregnant.

Mmm, I don't know that it is an abortion issue as much as it is a mental health issue.
There were plenty of signs that things were a miss such as her wanting to give her baby to the pastor a week before the murder, she was cutting her wrists with scissors and she is also a diagnosed manic depressant.
She was also accused of child neglect months before her daughters murder but no one including her husband did anything about it.
She also suffered severe depression after the births of her 2 daughters.
I am not condoning what she did by any means but there is quite a history of mental illness here!
Why wasn't she on medication and seeing a counselor.
See what I am saying??

Sounds to me like there were several fumbles in situations before the fact that could have prevented this.

Ash, I don't think this person was making an excuse for her.

I don't think ANYBODY would make an excuse for her.

It appears from their posts that many would have applauded Adolf Hitler when thousands of mental defectives, like this woman, were put to death. Rather than warehouse the defectives at government expense, the Nazi regime euthanized them and eliminated the risk that the defectives would breed and have offspring.

Are they sure this one should be released??? If she's being released from a mental instituion perhaps she must now start serving her life sentence for murder in prision???
