    IL - Mubashra Uddin, 19, charged in death of newborn, Chicago, 11 Nov 2015

    Police are investigating the death of a baby girl who was found outside an apartment building in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, about a block from Weiss Memorial Hospital.

    The death was ruled a homicide after the Cook County Medical Examiner said she died of blunt force trauma to the head.
    The baby was found about 11:45 on Wednesday night. She was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead.

    The safe haven and/or baby moses laws should be amended to add that anyone who intentionally causes the death of their baby will automatically receive life in prison or the death penalty.

    You got that right. All this person had to do was drop off the baby at any Safe Haven spot and there would of been no questions asked.

    You do if you have no morals, on drugs, or an IQ next to mentally incapacitated, or whatever the PC term is now-a-days. I'm sick of PC and even sicker about hurt/murdered babies. There needs to be more supervision, or some drastic measures taken to prevent this sort of thing - and I DO mean drastic, measures that may take away some rights of the womb and sperm donors, as opposed to taking away the life of a baby.

    Just my opinion

    I have no words. Well I do but none of them involve sympathy. How unbelievably cruel to have dumped her baby out of the window and left her to die slowly. Bless the man who wrapped her up and waited for paramedics. I cannot imagine the trauma from seeing a tiny baby fighting to stay alive. I hope they throw the book at her. She's NINETEEN. An adult. She could have gotten an abortion. or left this baby at a firestation, hell she could have left her on a doorstep and that would have given her at least a chance at life. Unbelievable. I hope they show her the pictures of what she did to this baby and I hope she lives with it forever.

    What a cruel act, and STUPID... As if no one would notice a dead/dying baby below her window and the police wouldn't figure out who lives upstairs from there, and as if her parents wouldn't find out anyway.

    Exactly. This sudden rash of babies thrown out windows has me confused for just this reason.

    Fully understand the condemnation - agree on that. But does anyone ask themselves why did she feel compelled do this?

    Dropping a baby off at a fire station has been around a long time - so why did she choose not to do this? She's 19 and an adult? Have never experienced that 19 and adult belong in the same statement - jmo.

    From the article in post #1 -

    After the baby was born, Uddin heard her mother approaching the bedroom, so Uddin opened a bedroom window and dropped the girl out, Turnock said.

    Mom knew she was pregnant imo - nothing will convince me otherwise. Then to top it off, mom was home when she gave birth - in an apartment. GMAB. One does not give birth without making a sound - even with an epidural, which this gal did not have the benefit of. Been there, done that with both options. Is everyone sure mom or dad (if one is around) did not drop this newborn from the window?

    Condemnation will not stop the next incidence of killing a newborn when options exist. Jmo.

    Sounds like a split second decision. I come from a culture that does not approve of teenage pregnancy so I understand what kind of parents she may have had. But it always baffles me why neonaticide happens when there are other options.

    I understand too - to a point. However, I bet her parents would approve of a teenage pregnancy more than murder? And it's not like she is 13 - she's 19. I know, still young and unwed, but still.....

    The religious culture could have played the larger role in this decision - jmo. Unable to absolve the parents in this - too many questions. Who cut the cord? Was the cord cut - or was the baby dropped from the window with the afterbirth attached? This would add more time between the birth and being dropped.
    I lean towards this 19 year-olds mother knew she was giving birth - possibly assisted her. Either one of them - or the teens father if he was there - could have dropped the baby with the teen having to accept the blame. Suspect a lawyer could raise reasonable doubt unless she confesses - even then it may not be true.

    The teens mother had to know or least suspect a pregnancy imo - it could have been handled much better. Sadly this will happen again somewhere due to fear and other emotions.
