Incredibly tragic, this story. She drowned all five of her children, in case some of you are unaware of the story.
I just found out that after the birth of her fourth child she suffered from depression to the point she tried to commit suicide twice and was hospitalized for PPD. After *recovering* she had another child, number 5.
Would it have been fair to say that she shouldn't have had anymore children, just as a personal opinion? Her husband just made the claim (he's on the Tyra Banks show right now) she had poor medical care with her depression and wished she'd have had better.
Hindsight being 20/20, maybe he's right but what else could have been done? How far should medical professions be able to reach into someone's personal life and dictate what they can and cannot do?
Pro-life people claim that the fetus is a life that deserves to be saved and the law should step in and not allow abortion to take place. What about the saftey of the lives of children already here? Why do some feel it's ok to reach into my uterus and force me to gestate a potential child but we are limited in our actions of saving those children already born?
Wouldn't it make more sense to save the lives of five children rather than fight to save the 'life' of what has yet to become a child?
