Toronto mother found guilty of drowning her autistic daughter.
Andrea adds: I feel agony for this woman, this family that is no more:
Shortly after her arrest, Peng [the mother] removed her glasses, smashed them and used them to slash her arms, according to evidence at her bail hearing that the jury wasn’t allowed to hear, the Toronto Star reported.
Because a mother taking the life her child is extremely unusual, and extremely troubling.
(Except of course when we sanitize it, make it clinical, call it medically necessary, fund it, and put it in our hospitals or create private clinics. At that point, all dressed up, we call it abortion, no wait, A Woman’s Right. And then people like me are called “radical” and “extreme” for suggesting perhaps this is not normal. Go figure.)by
