Mother is Charged in Stillborn Son’s Death

As some readers know, I’m the mother of three, two of whom are twin boys, age three.

I was thinking about the woman who apparently let one of her twins die on purpose while I was playing with one of the twins tonight. I was trying to imagine life without one of the boys, if, arbitrarily, I’d just decided to have one of them killed, or let one of them be killed, before they were born.

It sent chills through me even to think that such a thing could be legal.
