    I talk to this babies grandfather this morning. I am in shock I dont know this family at all he called my job and i looked up this story. My heart hurts for this family 5 months and he has no life anymore why are we out here being this evil. We need to do better as a community. This is sa his own mother was the nurse who got the call he was coming in imagine her hurt when she seen her own child roll in on a bed. If you read the baby was with a family friend how ignorant can people be the mother was at work saving children trying to save her own so lets stop with being dum learn to think sometimes its sad the world we live in

    Pro-choice people would say there is nothing wrong with this, it’s just five months later.
