2)"This kind of crap happens all the time with fathers having to release their kids to erratic mothers. Yet,when the situation is reversed,its newsworthy."
Oh really? How many mothers have killed their children in these circumstances? There have been several cases of a parent killing the kids to get back at the other spouse or ex-spouse and almost all of the murderers are fathers. You don't hear about mothers doing it, because they rarely do.
Don't forget how our wonderful governor just commuted the sentence of a woman who killed her two children, supposedly because of postpartum depression. I'm sure their father finds that argument comparable to the lives lost.
According to Quinn any excuse is okay for murdering your own child, provided it wasn't too long after delivery.
Finally, don't forget Amanda Hamm from Clinton who drowned her three children in 2003 because she said the kids were in the way of her and her new boyfriend's relationship.
Those enough examples?
