If I Ran the Reproductive Laws of America…

Yesterday I saw a news report about a 19-year-old woman who gave birth to a baby and threw the baby down a garbage chute. The baby didn't survive. The medical examiners are trying to determine if the baby was alive or not when it was disposed of. The young woman is being charged with a crime regardless, but the charges will be harsher if the baby was alive before it was disposed of. Less harsh if the baby was already deceased when it was disposed of.

This woman threw a human being down a garbage chute! A human being whom she just pushed out of her twat, I might add. I don’t see why the charges are even up for question, but that’s just my opinion.

I don’t know what the reasoning was behind her actions, because there is always a series of events that lead to a final decision. I’ll give her that. But I’m so disgusted with her and other women who make the decision to trash their newborn babies because there are so many other roads that can be taken without it getting to this point. Especially since today, there are so many options available to us.

For one, she could have used birth control. If you don’t want a baby, take some preventative measures. She could have given her baby up for adoption, or she could have left her baby at a hospital, fire house or police station with no questions asked. Why was this not a better option than throwing her baby in the garbage?

With so many deserving couples having fertility issues today, couples who are breaking their banks for a ‘chance’ at having a baby, I wonder why a person like this young woman is even allowed to have a baby. And if I ran the reproductive laws of America, women who make decisions like this wouldn’t be allowed to have children ever again.

If I ran the reproductive laws of America, there would be a mandatory tube tying law for situations like this. You dispose of your baby; you don’t get to have any more.

Too much?

I don’t think so. But that’s just my opinion.
