A Michigan District Court judge has charged a woman with felony murder, premeditated murder and first-degree child abuse, according to the Redford Township Police Department, after she delivered a baby and heartlessly put the baby in a bag to suffocate.

    25 year-old Kimberly Pappas is accused of delivering her baby at work, wrapping him up in a bag and sticking him in a desk drawer, suffocating the newborn.

    According to WDIV TV

    Investigators said she gave birth to a baby boy in the toilet, pulled him out to cut the umbilical cord, then wrapped him in a bag and hid him in her desk at work along with the placenta.

    The woman told responding paramedics she had a miscarriage.

    But rescue crews said the baby was still warm when they found him. The medical examiner said the baby died of asphyxiation.

    Pappas faces first-degree murder and first-degree child abuse charges. Her attorney said she was scared to have the baby which led to the incident.

    She is being held without bond.

I call this an after birth abortion or post birth abortion, what do you call it?

FOR CLARIFICATION: Yes, the story is about a woman who killed her baby at delivery. It is titled after birth abortion because the baby was killed after the mother delivered it. How is that different than killing a baby before she delivers it? I see no difference. Prebirth or After-bith abortion is the same” MURDER of a baby ! Think about that.

Author advocates Eugenics on BBC “any good mother would put a pillow over a suffering child”

Outrage as agony aunt tells TV audience ‘I would suffocate a child to end its suffering’
By Vanessa Allen 4th October 2010

Television pundit Virginia Ironside prompted outrage yesterday after saying she would suffocate a child to end its suffering.

Shocked BBC viewers complained after the agony aunt said she would hold a pillow over the face of a child in pain.

Minutes earlier the controversial writer said ‘a loving mother’ would abort an unwanted or disabled baby, and praised abortion as ‘a moral and unselfish act’.

Miss Ironside said: ‘If a baby’s going to be born severely disabled or totally unwanted, surely an abortion is the act of a loving mother.’
She added: ‘If I were the mother of a suffering child – I mean a deeply suffering child – I would be the first to want to put a pillow over its face… If it was a child I really loved, who was in agony, I think any good mother would.’

Commentators accused the controversial writer of advocating eugenics, and disability rights campaigners branded her views ‘despicable’.

The mother-of-one and grandmother said it was better to terminate a pregnancy than to condemn a disabled or unwanted child to a lifetime of emotional or physical suffering.
She told BBC1’s religious discussion programme, Sunday Morning Live, that abortion could be an act of kindness in those circumstances.

She said: ‘Abortion can often be seen as something wicked and irresponsible, but in fact it can be a moral and unselfish act… Sometimes the decision of a good mother is not to have the child.’

Programme host Susanna Reid appeared visibly shocked by her comments during the live debate, gasping: ‘That’s a pretty horrifying thing to say, that you would put a pillow over a suffering child.’

The writer said she recognised that disabled people could lead active and fulfilling lives.

But she said there were millions of disabled and unwanted children around the world who were left suffering in institutions.

‘To go ahead and have a baby, knowing that you can’t give it some kind of stable upbringing, seems to me to be cruel,’ she said.

The controversial author and journalist has previously argued that doctors should not fight to save very premature babies.

Her latest comments were made as doctors prepared to lobby for a change in the law to allow people to help the terminally ill to die.
Disability campaigner Clair Lewis accused Miss Ironside of using physical suffering as an excuse for advocating eugenics, through the abortion of disabled children.
She said: ‘The problems that disabled people face will not be fixed by killing off unborn children.’

GP Peter Evans, of the Christian Medical Fellowship, said: ‘For us to make judgments that people are not worth life, not worth the opportunity to live, is a very dangerous thing.’
Viewers left a series of complaints on the programme’s website message board, although some praised the writer’s outspoken comments.

One wrote: ‘How on earth has this woman been able to put such views, care of the BBC, it is despicable? [sic] To put a view of murder on a TV program she should be arrested and charged with encouraging the act of murder on babies.’

Another branded her views ‘disgusting’, adding: ‘How can she suggest that a child’s quality of life can be so bad that they would be better off dead?’

Mother won’t be charged with baby’s death because…
Campbell Co. investigators say the umbilical cord and placenta were still attached, so the law does not consider the baby a separate life.

A loophole in state law is preventing Campbell County investigators from charging a woman they say killed her newborn baby.

Deputies were called to a home in the 1200 block of Lone Jack Road in Rustburg around 11:00a.m. Friday. The caller said a woman in her early 20s was in labor. When deputies arrived, they discovered the baby had actually been born around 1:00a.m., about ten hours earlier. Investigators say the baby was already dead when deputies got there.

Investigators tell WSLS the baby’s airway was still blocked. They say the baby was under bedding and had been suffocated by her mother.

Investigators say because the mother and baby were still connected by the umbilical cord and placenta, state law does not consider the baby to be a separate life. Therefore, the mother cannot be charged.

“In the state of Virginia as long as the umbilical cord is attached and the placenta is still in the mother, if the baby comes out alive the mother can do whatever she wants to with that baby to kill it.“, says Investigator Tracy Emerson. “She could shoot the baby, stab the baby. As long as it’s still attached to her in some form by umbilical cord or something it’s no crime in the state of Virginia.“

The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office and Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office worked unsuccessfully to get the law changed after another baby died in the county in a similar case. Emerson says they asked two delegates and one state senator to take the issue up in the General Assembly. He says the three lawmakers refused because they felt the issue was too close to the abortion issue.

Emerson tells us there’s a double standard with the law. If someone other than the mother harms a baby still attached to the mother, that person can be charged.

The baby’s grandmother was home and was the one who called 911. Police say she will not be charged because the baby was born in the middle of the night and the grandmother did not know until late morning. Investigators tell us the baby’s father was upset when he showed up at the home after deputies.

“He was very upset. I think the grandparents were upset. I believe everyone was upset, except for the person who should have been upset, the mother.“, says Emerson.

Emerson tells us the woman knew she was pregnant and had received prenatal care. He says the baby was full-term, due Tuesday. The medical examiner says the baby was born healthy. An autopsy is being performed. The baby’s body will then be released to the family.
