Punish Her

This woman should be punished like the murderer that she is! She claims she was ashamed of the pregnancy because she wasn't married to the father? If she is as religious as she claims now to be than she shouldn't have been having premarital sex in the first place! i wouldn't be surprised if she said she didn't have early term abortion because she doesn't believe in that. And if having a baby was going to be humiliating to her than she should have used birth control! She murdered a baby; a baby that so many woman are unable to to have successfully. She needs to be punished to the fullest extent of law, and this should be a lesson to all those woman who even think of hurting their baby's.

I know this lady from my hometown of Chateaubelair,St.Vincent and the high status that she held in her community.Its a sad case but the Bible says you cant expect to put fire in your bosom and dont get burn and moreover God have a way of eposing our sins.Howver, there is no sin on earth that the blood of Jesus cant cure unless we blashpem.Erma just remember that God is willing to forgive us of our sin if we confess them before him.You are such a nice person and had you brought home that baby, yes it would have been headline but only for nine days and you would have been back on trace. May God have his mercies on you. We still love you.
