Baby Found in Dumpster

Exam week is upon me (and probably most of you college people out there) and it is Stressful! (Yes, with a capital “s”.)

And like any normal college aged kid, to de-stress I listen to Christmas music and read the news online.

Came across this article. Just a slight warning… it tells it like it is, and is a bit disturbing. Prepare yourself.

Dead Baby Found in a Dumpster in New York: Mother is Charged with Self-Abortion

I know right? I can almost picture your face just reading the title of the article. I gasped a little bit. I was studying statistics with my friends who are also taking the same class, and they both are Catholic. (The article is from Catholic.org). But I guess they don’t like to read articles about aborted babies right before a huge exam… for the life of me I can’t figure out why. 😛 But I digress…

The article in its entirety is extremely disturbing. There are a few gasping moments where your hands will run to your face to clasp your mouth is complete and utter shock and disgust.

A 20-year-old woman (a woman my age; that really puts things into perspective) self-aborts her baby by drinking herbal tea known as the “abortion-causing tea.” How lovely! So this chick gets knocked up, realizes she made a mistake, drinks this baby-killing tea, and then throws the baby into a dumpster. All like it’s nothing to her. What I would understand is how she could live with herself after seeing her dead baby… How messed up in the head does someone have to be to see a DEAD HELPLESS BABY and not care? How could someone live with themselves if they knew they had just murdered it? I hope it haunts her for a looooong time because that is disgusting.

She is being charged with murder, with self-abortion. And I’m not going to lie, I thought the exact same thing as the NARAL president. It’s a double standard in our society to not make illegal abortion but to charge a woman with self-abortion. Now, having said that, they have it right in this instance. Let’s take it a bit further, though, and realize that this is the right action! Let’s realize that abortion is horrible! Let’s realize that self-abortion is just as gross, and disturbing, and brutal as abortion performed by the doctor.

I think the difference is this: the justice system won’t see anything wrong with abortions performed by doctors because they don’t personally see the babies in the dumpsters. But because a baby was actually seen, and someone cared about that innocent child enough to call in the authorities, abortion suddenly became a horrible atrocity. The police officers, and the judge who sits in on this woman’s trial, will see pictures of the child who was selfishly killed by its mother, the one person who was supposed to protect it from harm, the person it loved unconditionally from that moment of conception. I  hope this causes a step in the right direction, the direction of outlawing abortion… I will pray hard that this is the wake up call the government needs.

I will let you read the rest of the article.  But think about this… Texas has a “Fetal Protection Law” but still allows abortions. Oxymoronic much?

Good luck on exams, all you collegians! Hope they prove to be easy 🙂

Casey Anthony- Not Guilty

Casey Anthony has just been found not guilty of killing her two-year old daughter, Caylee.

She was found guilty of providing false information on four accounts.

I can’t even tell you all how angry I am at this acquittal. If she wasn’t guilty of killing her daughter (or having some sort of role in killing her daughter) then why would she have to provide false information to police officers and investigators? If she didn’t need to lie, why would she?

It disgusts me to see her there standing in the court room giggling and laughing. I really just want to throw up. Her daughter has gotten no justice today. If she really had loved that little girl, I don’t see how she could stand there laughing and smiling. Her daughter is still dead. She has lost her forever. A truly good mother who loves their child unconditionally could never feel joy in knowing that their daughter was murdered.

I find it interesting that her parents left the court room right after Casey was found not guilty. Of course they know that she killed Caylee or they would have stayed to celebrate with her.

Granted, there were a lot of missing pieces in this case.However, I do believe that there was enough evidence to at least convict Casey Anthony of aggravated manslaughter of a trial. The fact, too, that she refused to testify makes the whole defense case a little sketchy. I know, I know. She can plead the 5th (refuse to say anything that might be used against her), but come on! This is a murder trial. Doesn’t anyone else think that it’s super weird she wouldn’t testify?! If she was innocent, wouldn’t she want everyone to know that? Wouldn’t she want people to know that she loved her little girl and didn’t murder her? I hate to say this, but I think the jury got this one wrong. Everything is against Casey Anthony. All the evidence, as little as there was, was against her.

I’m watching Fox now and the defense team is speaking. Jose Baez just said that he had mixed feelings about the trial. That there were no winners. And some other crap. I do agree with him on one account: the death penalty does not work. I don’t agree with the death penalty, and I don’t think she was guilty of 1st degree murder. And then he ruined it by 1) speaking in spanish (this is America you idiot) and 2) saying that when he goes home and his daughter asks him what he did today he would respond “I saved a life.” What a piece of crap. What an idiot.

Let me know what you guys think about this whole thing.
