Quoting ☮Scarlet Begonia:" When I was 14 I would never ever kill a baby that just came out of me. She could have gone ANYWHERE. ... [snip!] ... the bbay growing inside you and yes I think any 14 yr old is mature enough to know that strangling their own child is wrong."
Quoting Mrs. Daryl Dixon:" I don't understand how she used scissors to get the baby out of her....? &didn't butcher herself"
Quoting Unique Mama:" She should be tested and seen by as many doctors as possible to rule out any kind of mental illness that ... [snip!] ... department, police station, church, and the baby could have possibly had a normal life. Killing it was not the right choice."
Quoting NevviesMom:" Its true, where was her support system?? She is only 14, but she knows the difference between whats ... [snip!] ... right and whats wrong. Did she really think she could get away with killing her baby and stashing it under her bed? Its sick."
Quoting Sheep Cat:" My first reaction is hell yes she should be charged as an adult. But I don't know what her home life was like... Tough call. I honestly don't know."
Quoting I'm His Amy He's My Rory:" I agree with this. While she may have been scared. She still KNEW killing anyone, let alone her child ... [snip!] ... wrong. A crime that had willful intent is what happened. She should be charged accordingly, and helped while serving her time."
Quoting Anthony's Mommy ♥:" I don't think anyone thinks it was the right choice, or is even saying SHE thought it was the right choice. I'm just guessing maybe it was a desperate choice."
Quoting NevviesMom:" Agreed. If she's charged as a child, what exactly is this going to teach her? Not a thing."
Quoting ☮Scarlet Begonia:" People are scared and desperate all the time and they get in trouble for killing. Killing in desperation is not an excuse."It isn't an excuse, but it should be taken into consideration during the trial.
