I am writing this post today to ask for your help, I ahve started a petition to ask for the max sentence for the mother who threw her baby away. She has already plead gulity but served in the armed forces in my experince, since she did serve she will get off easy. Please give this little baby boy who was thorn away and never given a chance a voice. Thanks for all you help.

Re: Please read this - a better way? February 26, 2006 11:10 AM

Stephanie, while I agree with your sentiment, this moment gives me pause to ask.... Wouldn't our energies be better spent broadcasting the message to *every* girl/woman in this country about her safe, anonymous option to orphan her unwanted baby at our hospitals, churches, fire depts., etc.?  If this policy is like most in the U.S., it is underfunded and underpublicized.  Perhaps this sad and frustrating problem needs more volunteers, legwork, posters, and presenters; especially in those fringe neighborhoods/regions where public messages don't always reach the individuals.  But then, can ignorance ever be completely eliminated?

Just thinking out loud.  Sorry the petition didn't make, Stephanie.

I agree with Darly. Nothing we can do will bring this boy back to life, so instead, let's do something to help prevent other babies from ending up like this boy.

Or, even better: let's educate every girl and woman about contraception, and let's make sure that every hospital offers emergency contraception to every rape victim, and let's get emergency contraception approved for over-the-counter sale!  [ send green star]
