I should have said in my earlier post that she is likely to be found guilty of SOMETHING, as long as the prosecutor in this case doesn't take the same gamble by going for first-degree and the death penalty. The prosecutors in the Casey Anthony case took that gamble and lost BIG TIME. As a result, they ended up looking like idiots.
If the prosecutor in THIS case is smart, he/she will charge this girl with either second-degree murder or first-degree manslaughter. Getting a conviction on those offenses or even 2nd- degree manslaughter should be much easier.
Too bad it can't be televised, it would very interesting to watch how the defense is going to play this out. Will a lack of abortion facilities, finances, lack of sex ed i.e play a role? What responsibility do we as a society that push these taboo subjects such as sex, birth control and abortion to the back of our minds because we don't want to think our kids are having sex. I haven't read up on it any further, I'm sure there are more news articles or will be soon.
What she did was wrong, it's a crime for certain, but I wonder how she's feeling now? I can't help but have some empathy for her.

I feel the same way. My guess, and I know it's ONLY a guess at this point, is that this girl had very little, if any, sex ed at all, and she didn't know what all her options were. Her parents were probably anti-choice, who either threatened to kick her out of their home if she got pregnant or had an abortion.

In any case, as you said, the story behind why this tragedy happened will come out in her trial.

If your daughter is smart, she'll avoid sex entirely until she's old enough to graduate high school and hopefully college or vocational school, and get a good job. Teen sex is a BAD IDEA, for many reasons, this tragic case being one of the biggest ones.
Really? I didn't know that.

Yeah, sASSy, and I'm sure you would tell any of your daughters if one of them got pregnant, "raise that baby or else." The "or else" being kicked out of your home. Thank goodness I was NOT stuck with anti-choice, religious fanatics like you as parents.
My parents were intelligent enough to have honest discussions with me when I was a teenager about the FACTS regarding sex and how easily a girl could end up pregnant. I knew the LAST thing I wanted as a teenager was ending up pregnant and stuck with a baby, so I made sure I avoided all forms of sexual activity in my teenage years.
Thanks to my parents, I didn't fall into the TRAP of teen pregnancy and teen motherhood. I was able to accomplish all my dreams of an education and career instea
Oh please. Your parents raised a girl who believes in killing your child in the womb if you can't be bothered.

REAL responsible @@

I know how to read.

Let me break it down for you.

"I was watching an episodenof one of those teen mom shows. These parents clearly are not against premarital sex yet were simply SHOCKED and in their words "disgusted" that their daughter was pregnant.

Does that seem odd to you?

It did to me".

Here you are talking about you ^.

"I know a fairly young girl living with her bf. She has had her family over for BBQs and all. Her family FLIPPED out when she got pregnant.

Does that sound odd to you?

It did to me".

Again you are talking about you knowing a young girl living with her bf and having bbq's and the family flipping out. If you weren't there you should have indicated that fact. You also expressed that you expect people that live together are having sex making it sound like her family didn't know they were. I don't think her family was shocked they were having sex, but were shocked she was pregnant.

"Not sure what the families thought was going on in those couples beds. Me? I knew sex was. I wasnt surprised . Never once did i think anything but sex and sleeping was. I dont know..perhaps they thought a game of checkers was?"

And here you say you "you knew they were having sex" and you had thought about the two having sex. I find it odd that you think about whether or not people are having sex.
I can read just fine, you can't articulate your thoughts.

Yeah, sASSy, they were great parents, no matter what anti-choice imbeciles like YOU say about them. Unlike you, they weren't mindless religious fanatics, and for that I'm very grateful.

Oh, one more thing. Thanks to the wisdom of my parents, who told me exactly WHY teen sex was a BAD IDEA, I wisely avoided sex while in high school and DIDN'T end up pregnant and stuck with a baby in my teen years.

It must suck for you that I kept my freedom to BE a normal teenager and didn't have the overwhelming responsibility of motherhood dumped on me. Too bad.

Yep, in post #64. Not that it matters to me what an anti-choice imbecile like her thinks about them. I feel really sorry for HER kids, especially any girls she has.

Sassy's just a troll. That's what internet trolls do. Insult you, your parents, your dog, anything to inflame you into posting to them. I like to keep her going just to see how stupid the next post is going to be.

Nothing that faux-Christian spews matters.

Yeah, she's so uptight, and totally controlled by the old crocks that run her cult.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU. SHE MURDERED HER CHILD AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT MILLIONS OF WOMEN HAVE DONE AT THE HANDS OF "DOCTORS" EVERY DAY WORLDWIDE. ABORTION IS NO DIFFERENT EXCEPT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T SEE THE HORROR OF IT AS THE REMAINS ARE WHISKED AWAY AND THROWN IN THE TRASH. OH, THE HORROR OF IT ALL. I SO SO AGREE WITH YOU COMMENT; IT IS WRONG JUST AS ABORTION IS WRONG. THANK YOU.

Oh i get it....she must pay a Dr to do it.
It's called CHOICE.
And...she'd be considered "responsible" by her pro-killing friends who'd probably would have escorted her into the building to do it.
PRO-CHOICE=PRO-DEATH.
Not sure why this girl made the news. Killing your unwanted child is acceptable today...its legal.

If THIS girl had been aware of all her options, including her choice to have an abortion or have her baby adopted after it was born, this case might have had a much happier outcome. My guess, she had parents who were vehement ANTI-CHOICERS, which was tragic for her.

Thank goodness MY parents were intelligent enough to tell me exactly WHY teen sex was a BAD IDEA. Due to the discussions I had with them, I avoided sex in high school, and as a result DIDN'T get pregnant and stuck with a baby when I was anywhere from 14-18.

I am from Australia and this kid SHOULD get the death penalty. In fact she should be taken out and stripped of her clothes then be slowly strangled while she kicks and gurgles and is final dead with her tongue sticking out! Then she should be paraded in a wheelbarrow with a sign around her neck saying what she had done. final'y her naked body should be dumped in an unmarked grave or a rubbish dump and forgotten about. A 13 year old girl who poisoned two boys in my country should get the same!

This is sick, totally sick. She should be tried as an adult, and punished as an adult. Life in prison with no chance of parole. She killed her baby in cold blood. I have no compassion for this. Sick!

PC means supporting ALL a womans choices. If this girl didn't want to be a Mother then you shouldn't FORCE her to be one.
Isn't that the whole pro-CHOICE logic? Bottom line,she didn't want to put her child up for adoption so she killed it. It was the best decision for *her*. YOU might not have done that,but it is HER choice whether to mother her child or not.
Shoes on the other foot and now YOU are arguing with me? How convenient.
pro choice does not mean supporting someone who murder an already born child. it means supporting those who want to have an abortion... how was she forced to be a mother? she should have told someone and gone through the proper procedures if she really didn't want the child. once the child is born, it's considered a human, therefore she committed a crime by murdering it. you are sick and disgusting.
