South Carolina Woman has extremely late term abortions

A woman from Orangeburg, SC, Shaquan Daly, has confessed to smothering her two children, two years old and one year old, as a result of depression stemming from a) economic hardship and b) verbal abuse from her mother.

Now, why is this a crime?  If she did this just 18 months ago to the one child, or 2 and a half years ago to the other, it would have been totally legal.  This is just an extremely late-term abortion!

Hey, in _Gonzalez v. Carhart_, the Supreme Court ruled that Infanticide is OK if you don’t cut the head off.  Is smothering a “less gruesome” means of killing a kid than cutting the child’s head off?

In other news, I was sitting with Allie at Children’s Rehabilitative Services today, and overheard some people talking about this case:

“If she didn’t want the kids, why’d she have to kill them?  She could’ve just had an abortion!”
