Mother Drowned Two Newborns to Save Money on Abortion
â€śLet all the babies be born. Then let us drown those we do not like,â€ť said G.K. Chesterton. The philosopher was making a pro-life point, but, increasingly, weâ€™re seeing mothers who actually are performing their own post-partum â€śabortions.â€ť One case involves a 34-year-old Maryland woman who did, in fact, deliver a baby on two different occasions â€” and then decide to drown the child right after birth. Writes Lifesite Newsâ€™ Ben Johnson, â€śMelissa Schrae Bowen of Prince Frederick said she killed her babies because she had three children already and could not afford an abortion. She saw her acts of infanticide as a parallel to legalized abortion.â€ť
The grisly story came to light on March 8, 2012 when the defendantâ€™s mother found the body of a baby boy, born sometime in 2007, in a garbage bag in Bowenâ€™s car trunk and contacted the police. Months later on November 16, authorities would discover another...
Streetpreacher, that's how I always tend to see it...God spared them. As horrific as it is to hear about the murder of children of any age, I try to look at it like this.

Either that, or mankinds free will gave them their pass and they are all in heaven either way. I really don't know how to look at it, but in the end, do believe they are taken into heaven. I know some see it different, but I just can't imagine children who didn't know any better suffering in hell for eternity.
What kind of a mother could do such a thing? Having somebody else murder them is bad enough, but doing the killing yourself- that just takes somebody with a heart of stone. I hope to see those two precious little people up in heaven some day.
which didn't surprise me and reminded me of something I always say/consider. Murder little Tommy or Annie while in the womb, and life goes on. Nobody bats an eye or says a word...nobody cares. Murder little Tommy or Annie the moment they arrive into this disgusting new world, and you are a monster. You are the story du jour as the airwaves and social media blow up with angry disgust. The world gasps in horror and neighbors are interviewed saying they never thought she could be capable of such a thing, etc. Quite the double standard as they justify millions of murders they overlook and condone.
