    This is the most horrific thing I have ever heard! How could anyone ever do such a thing! They deserve to be put in front of a firing squad or to be stoned to death! There is a special place in hell for people who do these type of things! 😡

  2. Lord have mercy on our souls. We have destroyed your creation and have very little compression when it comes to newborn babies. They murdered thousands of babies per day and Call it abortion and then we see things like this.
    So wrong, so very wrong.

  3. she is young and doesn’t know that you can take them to the hospital no questions asked. Could be many things that is going on in her head and you will do anything from your parents finding out. I ‘m just saying , yes I know this is sad to all amounts of degrees, but we do not know the whole story on the mother.
