BAYTOWN, Texas — A baby born to a 14-year-old mother in a restroom at her junior high was alive at birth, dying only after she tried to flush it down the toilet, officials said Thursday.
Police also announced Thursday that the baby born Wednesday was a boy.
Baytown police Lt. Eric Freed said the baby boy was probably full term and cried once before his mother tried to flush him down the toilet.
Authorities have not announced what, if any, charges the girl will face. Killing an infant is a capital crime in Texas, but 14-year-olds are too young to be eligible for the death penalty, said Geoffrey Corn, an assistant professor at South Texas College of Law.

I feel bad for the girl. She's probably alone, the father likely wouldn't help. The family likely would chastise her and shame her for being pregnant at such a young age (or she seriously believes they will). Her brain still hasn't fully grown, and her hormones are going crazy. Not only because she's a teenager, but she's also doped up on those pregnant hormones, which can make people do crazy things.
I think this girl needs help, not prison. We also need to help the countless other young girls in similar situations to understand that they can receive help, and they won't be chastised or punished for being in an unfortunate situation so they don't resort to flushing the baby.

I will not even read this report, why is it in the past couple of months more and more of these types of sick breaking news reports keep flooding in? If members want this type of information they will watch fox or buy the national enquirer.
This is NOT a conspiracy and it only serves to detract from the real work being done here. This sensationalism has got to go.
I could see this kind information being used in a well thought out thread and a theory concerning the multitude of these types of events ramping up in the news today and its implications and or conspiracy to mass mind control people with weak constitutions or the use of pharmaceuticals to aid the depopulation process. Stop opening your computer and finding these stories on your homepage then without thought or consideration bringing them here to take up bandwidth.

This would be a good example of why we need cameras in schools and less privacy for the students.
