Woman Admits Aborting Baby
 Just a Week Before Due Date
Yorkshire Post ^ | July 24, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 07/23/2012 7:58:08 PM PDT by Tau Food

A WOMAN has admitted ending her pregnancy only a week before the unborn child’s due date after she bought medication on the internet to carry out the abortion.

Sarah Catt appeared at Leeds Crown Court yesterday and admitted a charge of procuring her own miscarriage.

The 35-year-old bought medication over the internet that would induce the labour, although North Yorkshire Police officers admitted they remain baffled as to her motives. No evidence of the baby has ever been found, according to 
officers involved in the investigation.

Catt told police she had terminated the pregnancy legally, despite medical records in March 2010 showing her to be nearly 30 weeks pregnant – six weeks beyond the 24-week legal limit for a termination.

Yes, but in cultures where religion is marginalized, one’s conscience comes from pop culture. Maybe we should ask the Bamster. In Illinois, when he was a State Senator, he voted to have babies born alive during a partial birth abortion to be left in a utility room until they died. I think that's murder, too.

Yeah, he probably would.

I really find this shocking - one week before the baby would be full term.

You’re absolutely right. Partial birth abortion is really infanticide.

I agree that it results from the marginalization of religion. Without religion, there are no structural standards. Everything is reduced to convenience.

Abortion at any point is infanticide and all abortions are partial birth abortion. IMHO. Just say'n nor arguing.

Sorry, but ALL abortions at ANY TIME is really infanticide. What do you think the woman is carrying, a frog? You're parsing words here . . . partial birth . . . no such thing . . . it either is or it ain't . . . it's alive or it's dead . . . in that case, it's a still birth or miscarriage.

Well, you're right about that. What I guess I should have said is that, by anyone's lights, partial birth abortion is infanticide.

This is bogus. There isn't any "medication" you can "buy over the Internet" that results in a 3rd trimester abortion producing a dead baby.

She gave birth, murdered the child, disposed of the body somewhere, and this is her cover story.

You might very well be right. It does sound strange, but I’m not an MD.

Baby is with God, comforted with love for all eternity. Mother, not so much.

Research has proven that a child of thirty weeks (ten weeks before term of forty) can already learn to recognize sounds. This was proven via the ‘startle reflex’.

While not neccesarily disagreeing with you, I think the point that was being made is that even under the law as it stands now this is infanticide. Certainly it should be prosecuted as such.

I completely agree . . . infanticide . . . premeditated, no less . . . 1st degree . . . death penalty . . . no sympathy

I believe that the crime of ‘infanticide’ was introduced in the 1920s because a lot of juries were squeamish about convicting hormonally imbalanced young mothers of murder, which was still carried a mandatory sentence of death in Britain in those days.

Interesting, although I cant quite grasp how introducing the law would make juries more likely to convict...

Because if the jurors felt that the person was guilty, but that the punishment was excessive for the crime, they would essentially nullify the verdict.

Back in the early 19th century, you could be hanged for something as trivial as stealing a silk hankie from somebody’s pocket. As time wore on, juries consisted of people who thought that death for comparatively trivial crimes was too much and these petty criminals were being let of in large numbers because they didn’t want their deaths on their conscience.

The same principle was applied as sympathy for the mentally ill and deranged increased during the early 20th century. I myself believe in the death penalty for pre-meditated murder, but I don’t think I would be at all enthusiastic about convicting a mother with post-natal depression who killed her child whilst her mind was unbalanced if the only available crime that she could be convicted of was that of capital murder.
