Read the article below and tell me how this is any different than a late term abortion in which the baby is delivered feet first and then while the head is still inside, scissors are stuck into the back of the head cutting the spinal chord to the base of the brain so that the baby can "officially" be declared "aborted" prior to birth. Do a few seconds or minutes really mean the difference between a medical service and murder? And does decapitation by a doctor warrant medical service awards by so-called women's rights groups, but if done by the mother its called murder? And what about those babies born alive, but left in a bucket to die? Does this mean if the baby dies in a bucket in a doctor's office that it is acceptable, but if it dies in a bucket under a woman's sink that it is than murder. Does this mean that the only difference between this story and the stories of thousands of babies who die as a result of late term abortion, is that the woman being charged didn't have a medical license. If a female abortion provider kills her own baby, will she be charged with murder? Hmmm? Something to think about!

CENTRALIA, Wash. -- A 25-year-old mother has been arrested for allegedly killing her newborn son soon after he was born.
Laura L. Hickey is facing a charge of murder, Lewis County prosecutors said.
The investigation began just before 1 a.m. on March 2 when paramedics were called to Hickey's Centralia home after neighbors heard Hickey call for help, police said.
Hickey was taken to Centralia Providence Hospital where she reported to doctors that she was having a miscarriage, but doctors later determined Hickey had given birth, investigators said.
Police say when Hickey was questioned by hospital staff, she admitted she gave birth and that the child was under the sink in her kitchen.
Medics rushed back to the home and found the body of a baby boy in a container under the sink.
An autopsy later concluded the boy was alive at birth, but had later been decapitated.
