That’s rather harsh, and scientifically it holds little if any truth. We like to pretend that we’re in total control of everything and that everything is a choice that someone could make if only they were good enough.
The truth of the matter is that maternal bonding is psychologically and physiologically complicated. Increased levels of serotonin and oxycontin accompany the early bonding with a child, with or without breastfeeding. This girl’s condition obviously hindered that process and it’s likely that the lack of seratonin and oxycontin did inhibit bonding. The mother isn’t really at fault for failing to produce the typical mammalian response.
Stupid tablet changed oxytocin to oxycontin.

And? Does that excuse holding a kid at a distance and verbally and emotionally abusing ehr own daughter?
We're not talking about lab rats here, we're talking about human beings. Human beings make choices.
I know you are correct, but I don't think I have ever held a baby that I did NOT instantly love, and I am a guy. Does that make me faggy?
