    I was wondering...If she was mentally ill and on cocaine as well as etoh....how was she deemed competent by the hospital to sign for anything?
    It seems to me that she should have been considered unable to sign for anything. Maybe since she was under the influence of drugs and alcohol as well as being mentally ill she should sue the hospital for allowing her to make any decisions at all!!! She obviously wasn't able to make them with a sound mind....Honestly though based on the fact that she punched her toddler in the face several times years earlier I am glad that she is in prison. But that isn't the charge right now.
    I do think that when you are talking about religion as an excuse...what religion doesn't allow for surgery??? Is there one??? Based on the stories I have read she had said several times that she would rather her babies die than go to LDS hospital and things like that. It seems to me that she didn't really have much concern for the babies. It is interesting to me that so many people still disregard the baby as a human until it is born.. That really surprises me. I think if you could be in a delivery room and hold a 24 weeker or even younger you would see that it is a human inside there....they too should have rights.
