Newborn girl found in backpack in DeKalb park | ajc.com
I’m really tired of these stories. Laws have been created to help keep things like this from happening. This is the second time in a week. This time in South DeKalb. Right now its a misdemeanor to abandon a baby. Maybe the act of abandoning a newborn should be a felony. Maybe it should be considered attempted murder, after all when you abandon a newborn, your intentions are not to see to it that the child survives. If the infants survival was your main goal, you would abandon him/her at a hospital, or fire station. I hope that fear of what a parent might say or do did not cause this person to make this decision. That kind of fear cannot be healthy.
