Just sickening.
I don't know how much more help we can offer those that do not want their newborns. This should not be happening anymore.

Bless this infant's little heart. It takes an especially rotten human being to abuse or murder a
child.

Where's all the bleeding hearts crying for justice over this case, like the one in asheville this week over the poor little black boy that got killed. I guess they're resting up.

Over the "poor little black boy?" ... yes an innocent CHILD was killed and the person who killed him was caught, tried and convicted.

Not only me, but everyone with a heart James, will be praying for the soul of this infant and for the family and praying even harder that the person who killed this innocent INFANT will be found and brought to justice.

James, I think you obviously have a problem with Brian Banks being convicted and you have that right, but we don't need to hear it on every thread - this story has nothing to do with the other.

That's the new American way folks. If you want a baby, just throw it in a dumpster or ditch. The courts won't do much, if anything, to you. Sickening.

A child knows no sin except that perpetrated on them by some sick/warped adult. God bless this child's soul.

I am surprised at the number of people who condemn the woman who purposely had 14 kids ,yet they don't have much to say about the mothers who kill their own children(and fathers). She does seem to love the kids even though I think she should have thought more about how to feed and care for them. I still do not think she deserves to lose them. It would be sad to see them seperated.

I just think the person or persons who done this to this poor baby should go ahead & shoot their self in the head...and get it over with...cuz this person is a worthless piece of crap...and a nobody..I dont know how anyone has the heart, guts or whatever to harm someone let alone a child...I just cant imagine what a person must feel while they murder a child or leave a baby to die..they must have smthg wrong in the head and heart..this makes me very sad cuz I want a child very bad and cant have one...so when i hear this...it makes me feel so much hate toward women who can have kids..a child IS NOT TO BE thrown out like a can of trash...but you hear so many people doing it all the time...I never get why there are ways to give your kid away the right way ..but women or men just decide to kill them instead..this breaks my heart and I hope this person is caught or they decide to take their own life...cuz they dand sure dont deserve to live after doing this..GOD Bless This little angel..who did nothing to deserve this kind of treatment!!

How can the world walk with blinded eyes. A child has no voice, perhaps in the baby's death its voice can be heard. Such a tragedy that he or she never knew love. Could you imagine...Never knew love, not even for a second. An innocent precious newborn. Out of the womb and slain. This is just as horrendous as abortions at any stage, the choice to take an innocent life, a life with a beating heart. A life.
There must be justice for this innocent slain baby.
It's a shame that by our laws the baby's killer can not die in the same manner that they chose to take its life. There are no excuses, find them and burn them at the stake, and may the killers mind be forever tormented by the babys screams. Baby killers deserve no mercy.

The law in NC says that if a mother does not "want" her newborn, she can take that child to the nearest hospital, fire station, police station, or social service office without threat of prosecution. There is absolutely no reason to kill a child when the law affords protection to both the child and to the mother. This law needs more publicity, again. It was highly publicized when it was passed several years ago, but it appears that more publicity is needed now.

Absolutely! We need to consider posting this information at highschools and places teens hang out.

I agree, perhaps more newspapers could print articles or ads, and public places could place posters such as in schools, and movie theatres, malls etc. Knowledge is empowering. Perhaps even if they could dial an emergency number for someone to come and take the baby could help save the baby's life.

That is exactly what I meant when I said I didn't know how much more help we could give them so that they wouldn't do this. On top of that, birth control and/or the morning after pill are free for the asking. All confidentiality kept. No criminal consequences. If this isn't enough, then what is?

The Human race never fails to sicken me. The person that did this had other options, legally.

So sad.
