So lets get a chill pill and debate the deplorable conditions that the fetus found its ultimate death.
After been born alive.
I will happily debate the OP topic only but will ignore the baiting and the self righteousness.
At 23 weeks, an otherwise healthy fetus would have a slim but legitimate chance of survival. Quadruplets born at 23 weeks last year at The Nebraska Medical Center survived.
An autopsy determined Williams' baby — she named her Shanice — had filled her lungs with air, meaning she had been born alive, according to the Department of Health. The cause of death was listed as extreme prematurity.
"She came face to face with a human being," Pennekamp said. "And that changed everything."

For some reason the scenario I default to is that the "father" bailed and she wanted to be rod of the child to symbolically be rid of the father. I always tend to default to the more petty and pathetic side when considering peoples motivation. A learned response I guess.
