How sad - throwing a little baby in the trash. If the mother isn't nuts then she should get 30 years in the big house.

I think it is pretty obvious she is mentally ill; but I still think she should get prison time.

Exactly! There is no excuse for dumping your baby (not that it was OK before these options). In addition to jail time, these women who dump their babies, should have there tubes tied,so they can never do this again.
I couldn't agree more. Absolutely shameful, I also find it hard to believe that she was having a mental breakdown if she was coherent enough to want to keep this pregnancy a secret!

Hm..we live in a society that devalues babies by allowing partial birth abortion (Note: I'm not talking first trimester abortions).

I mean, what is the difference between what this lady did, and what a doctor does when he delivers a 7-9 month old baby up to the neck, then sucks out its brains?

Oh wait, it's a "choice".

Oh wait, this woman made a "choice" too.

Was it the difference of a 4" head? The lack of immediate death by syringe? It has to die on a hospital gurney to be legal, but a trash can, illegal?

Oh wait, I know, you have to do it in the presence of a doctor, or just the doctor has to do it?

Just curious......

I personally think there are other avenues for unwanted pregnancies, absolutely. What I feel about this case is that this grown woman should be held for attempted murder. To put a newborn to die in a trash can is unconscionable. She also can't be so close to a mental breakdown since she was sane enough wanting to keep this pregnancy a secret for 9 months. This grown, sane woman gave no thought to anyone but herself and how to get rid of an unwanted baby, at any cost. Now what’s this poor 11 yr. old going through who found the baby? What does this act show this child? Sounds to me like the one who should have a spot in the trash is the woman, and close the lid tight!
