A 37-year-old kills her newborn baby because she doesn’t want her parents to know she’s having premarital sex? Sounds very fishy to me; something is not being reported here. Still, you can’t help but think had she killed the baby a month or two before she was born, there would have been no trial, no courtroom, and no attempt to lay charges.
Jody Ann Lee, 37, of Barrie, pleaded guilty to infanticide and failing to provide the necessities of life after police found her newborn baby girl stuffed into plastic bags in the trunk of her car Nov. 8, 2005. Lee is allowed to spend three days a week with the surviving twin at her home where she lives with her parents as she awaits sentencing, court has heard.
Tanya adds: “Doctors say she [the infant victim] had taken her first few breaths of life.”
And that’s the reason this story is getting any press. It’s the reason the mother of this child, the one being accused of infanticide, can be called “manipulative and devious” while onlookers nod in agreement.
I don’t believe the public’s scrutiny of this woman would have softened had the child been born with a heart defect or with down’s syndrome. But a child in the womb, even one past the age of viability, can be aborted with only sympathy for the mother. It just can’t be explained.by
