Here you go: Infanticide.

"It's a dirty game"
.
People who throw babies out of car windows, into dumpsters, or drown them, might get a break someday if laws such as these are passed:
.
A Texas pro-abortion Democrat, Rep. Jessica Ferrar introduced the "Infanticide Bill" this week.
.
It defines infanticide as:
.
A person commits an offense if the person wilfully by an act or omission causes the death of a child to whom the person gave birth within the 12-month period preceding the child’s death.
.
The bill says that infanticide should not be prosecuted as murder as long as:
.
… at the time of the act or omission, the person’s judgment was impaired as a result of the effects of giving birth or the effects of lactation following the birth.Infanticide would become a felony, punishable by no more than two years in prison, with a minimum of 180 days, and/or a fine of no more than $10,000.

Oh, so dads could still be charged with murder if they kill the baby. How civilized.

  1. Well, having had children myself, directly after giving birth the woman is in a major hormonal imbalance. While I don't think it's great that any child should die, I think there could be circumstances where the mother might not be in her "right" mind were she to kill her own child after birth.
    Ouch, don't stone me! I'm just saying...some not to stable persons, may be driven to great instability after birth, and may not have full culpability for their actions. Ouch--stop that :)

  3. Infanticide is murder, and so it should be prosecuted as such. Infanticide is deplorable, but it’s no worse than killing a baby inside the womb, say one day before it is born, or two days, or three days or four days…
