Utah woman makes seven choices

See also

A Utah woman exercised her right to choose and as a result seven dead babies were found in cardboard boxes in her garage presumably ready for shipment or perhaps stored as a back up plan for home heating.

Her estranged husband is serving prison for manufacturing meth which indicates the couple were on hard times (or good times, depending on how you look at it) and so the economic rationale of her choice seems plausible. Should children be raised in such a home, what kind of life is that?

Megan Huntsman, 39, will be arrested and charged for the so-called crime. "So-called" because it hasn't been determined (to my satisfaction, at least) if the babies were born before or after they died. If before, then she ought to go to jail. If after, then this is all a misunderstanding and Mrs Huntsman ought to be let go and receive a medal of honor for her courageous stance against the War on Women. It's an important distinction.

In any event we have seven less children living in poverty and that makes all the difference in the world. We can all breath a sigh of relief. The food stamps, health care cost, bad manners and messy appearances that come as a result of these types of children especially in Utah. Megan Huntsman is the villain of the week and it's a shame because if only she had better prenatal timing things could be so different for her.
