I'm usually all for personal choice with the reproductive process, but this woman should never be allowed to have more babies! How could you DO that??

I hope Children's Services takes the baby away from her. She is an unfit mother!

EXACTLY!

Another example of why stupid people shouldn't breed. I couldn't help but notice the line about how her other 2 kids are now in custody of thier fathers

Sick sick people.

That shows she is too young to be a mother. She is too immature if she can't even quit drinking for her the 2 children and the baby's sakes. These kind of people should be put away for a long time.

I am surprised that Children's Services didn't step in when she showed up at the hospital twice while drunk, but then I am unsure of the laws there.

There was a case a few years back in my city that involved "Baby M" (IIRC).
The mother was a "huffer" and would not seek treatment while pregnant.
As the law states that a baby is not a human with rights until born, she couldn't be mandated into treatment.
She did, however, seek treatment of her own volition in the end, I think based on support coming out of the woodwork and the backlash directed at her.

Her baby was born fine and healthy eventually, but you can never be sure of the adverse effects in the future or that aren't physical in nature.

Here are more details from the AP:
It states the baby has fetal alcohol syndrome.


""She was jailed on $30,000 (all figures U.S.) bail. At a court appearance this week, Tanner was advised of her rights and ordered to return to court Aug. 5. She has not yet filed an application for an lawyer or entered a plea, the court clerk's office said.

Sheriff's investigator James Wynn said the baby has fetal alcohol syndrome and has been placed in a foster home with a caretaker experienced in dealing with addicted infants.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists the syndrome as the leading preventable cause of mental retardation and physical deformity. The severity of disability in this case won't be known until the baby is older.""

Oh that poor baby . I hope they lock that sick woman up and give her a hystorectomy while they're at it!

I also wonder: Where's the father in all this? Did he just sit back and watch this happen?

I am always amazed at the power of addiction.

My neighbor had worked fo years to get his pilots liscense. Had to stop and start several times to finish. He had a second job that he got through a friend to help finance it, good job with good pay. Became an apartment manager for more money-a good gig too cause he didn't even have to collect rent or do repairs, just *be* there to field issues and got a great deal on a really nice place...

Well got addicted to Vicadin and went crazy, had to have the cops come cause he was hallucinating and making phone calls that made no sense. When the cops arrived his place was trashed, stuff all over.

Anyways, the cops had to report it and he lost his pilots license. Lost the good paying job, everyone in the apt knew how he acted so he almost lost that, although they actually took him back.

I couldn't believe all that work for nothing. He is doing ok now, he got anotherjob and is managing. But the sense of loss must be incredible.

I was really angry too when I found out a mutual friend originally gave him the vicidins from his perscription and then apparently he managed to get his own perscription from a Doctor due to injuries. But really only wanted them for the addition feeding. No one, other than a doctor should give people perscription drugs.

Considering that she has two other kids with two other men, I have to wonder if either she didn't know who the father was, and even if she did if he even knew she was pregnant. Not that I'm letting the guy off the hook if he did know, but I think it's very possible that he didn't. Of course, that is total speculation on my part!

The poor innocent child. my parents used to foster a little boy who had FAS - they have really unique features. I feel for this little un.

I was thinking of this article today after what my friend told me at work today-I just e-mailed the article to him.
My friend told me that his daughter's mother is about 8 months pregnant..(not by him)& this whole time she has been going to this bar everyday, drinking & smoking cigarettes like an idiot. This has been an ongoing story, he would tell me about her, like how she was just going to the Moose club everyday, & taking his daughter, how she was gaining weight & starting to look old from the drinking & smoking, how nasty her house was, how her parents do everything around the house. (she lives w/her parents)
I told him before, he should sue for custody, just over the bar thing, but he didn't really want to rock his little daughter's world, she still loves her Mom.
So anyway, he found this out over the weekend from the sister..The Mom is all stressed out about it, but yet they go to the bar WITH her, afraid that if she doesn't go there, she might do something worse. The girl's best friend is the bartender! I think the father was just someone from another bar, who probably doesn't even know she is pregnant. The sister wants to have her committed, she is doing this on purpose for some reason. He said that someone saw her in the bar bathroom, punching herself in the stomach. She wants to have the baby at the hospital & just walk out & leave it there, something about she thinks she won't get charged for abandonment if it's left in what's considered a "safe place". The sister told him she will have the hospital check for fetal alcohol syndrome. The girl has recently gone to Vegas & drank it up, & is rumored to de doing coke!
What a total peice of human garbage.
My friend said he is going to call a lawyer tonight & start custody proceedings.
All I could think of today was that poor little baby, swimming in a sea of poison & hate.

This is so sad. It sounds like she's trying to kill her baby.

You know I'm not a real supporter of abortion, although I believe everyone should have the choice. And these women have the choice why don't the exercise it? It just makes not sense, instead of drinking your baby to death or like in the case above punching yourself in the stomach why don't you just go to the clinic?

That's my outlook on it, too.
From what I understand, I think keeping the baby was a spite thing against the parents. Like,"I'll show YOU!" The Mom has always spoiled her rotten done everything for her, & has successfully turned her into an idiot.

This woman is disgusting. I think her tubes should be tied.
I think she needs some jail time for endangering the life of a child, for abusing a child, eyc. Name it! How horrible! That poor little baby!
