Funny that they left Iowa in time for her to give birth thousands of miles from home. That's so very convenient for hiding the pregnancy. Why go all the way thru the pregnancy only to kill the infant? She could've taken a rusty wire hanger 8-9 months earlier and been done with it.

Send her back to Iowa. Does Iowa have a Death Penalty? Not that it matters much since the Death Penalty is a joke as it is never used. It just gives the criminal more and more rights over the victim.

it's a heart breaking story, and I hate the fact that she did not think she had any other options. I would like to point the finger at her parents to they should have been a little more involed in their childs life, and less judgemental. I would hope that my daughter would come to me, and talk. Less judging more talking!
What's sad here is that Ashley is an adopted child. Why couldn't she have done that for her own child? Did her adopted parents treat her that badly? I just can't imagine going thru 9 months of pregnancy only to kill the baby? It wasn't stillborn. Ashley herself said the baby was crying. Ashley needs to be locked up in a mental institution. Let her bang her empty head against the padded walls.

Christian America,

Whatever happened to compassion and mercy? Are you without sin?

I'm not even X-ian, but cut the kid some slack... she fucked up big time and will pay for it. Don't make a mockery of the whole thing.

Get back to the things that matter to you: Paris Hilton, George W., and crappy movies.

Tim, where was the compassion and mercy when that newborn was tossed down a 7 story laundry chute? That girl intended to kill that baby - whether she would have put a plastic bag over it's head or let it hit it's head and body on concrete from a 70 foot fall (that's 7 stories).
That girl should have shown mercy by allowing the baby to be adopted. Instead, she traveled far from home, only to murder the child. So sad.

Well I reside in Iowa near where this girl was from and the worst part is she said that she did not think that the baby was her boyfriends, whom she was with for over a year so she obviously has commitment issues. Someone needs to be made an example of so that this does not happen again.

I think the bible sums it up best with "An eye for a eye"

I feel she has no rights to have her own life even if it is in prison. Let her suffer the agony of knowing that her days are numbered by sitting on death row. Capitol crime deserves capitol punishment!

What does being white have to do with it, as i recall an african american woman just killed her two young children by drowneding them in a bathtub. It is the individual person that is making the choice to kill their child not the color of their skin.

Kids have enough problems as it is without being subject to two mommies or two daddies.
