Texas mother charged with feeding her child feces


hosted.ap.org

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A woman in Texas has been accused of repeatedly smearing human waste on her 3-year-old daughter's intravenous feeding line, potentially causing life-threatening infections.

Emily Beth McDonald, 23, of Austin, was charged with felony injury to a child. She faces up to life in prison if convicted.

According to an arrest affidavit, a surveillance video at Dell Children's Medical Center captured McDonald on Sunday placing feces from a soiled diaper on the cap of a tube with a direct link to her child's bloodstream.

According to the affidavit, police interviewed Mc

What is happening in America? Is it as many say that their is not an epidemic of child abuse but just better reporting? Perhaps, but the abuse of children to this guy seems to be getting more bizarre with every passing day.

I surmise that this mother really didn't want her child and decided to kill it by infecting the child with bacteria from her own feces. Hey, Ms McDonald there are adoption agency's and childless couples that would have adopted your child.
God help us!

Ugggg, what's wrong with people. I am left speechless with most of these stories. How can these parents willing harm their own children???

Ms. McDonald might be suffering from Munchausen Biproxy? I am not condoning her behavior or trying to make up excuses I am just trying to understand why?

How horrid. This woman needs a full psych eval so when they lock her sick arse up no one can get her out. I can't even fathom what could make a parent do something like this.

This is just awful. Poor little child.


It also sounds like the mother has Munchhausen syndrome:


Definition of Munchhausen syndrome by proxy

A parenting disorder in which the parent either fabricates an illness or induces an illness in their child. Munchhausen syndrome by proxy (MSBP) differs from other forms of parenting disorder in that the offending parent is almost always the mother, she usually appears to be a model mother, there is little or no indication of family discord, and the abusive behavior is clearly premeditated, not impulsive, and not in reaction to the child's behavior.

Fabricated illness is the more frequent form of MSBP. The parent may claim that their child is ill, when the child is not. For example, a parent might claim their child is having seizures when the child is not. Or a parent may allege that their child is passing blood in its urine and provides urine samples suggesting this is so, whereas the parent has pricked their own finger and dripped blood into the urine sample.

Induced illness is the less frequent but more dangerous form of MSBP. This involves the parent inflicting damage on their own child. For instance, the parent may inject air under the child's skin or feed the child too much salt and make them sick. Some of these child victims die at the hands of their parents.

I don't care how everyone spins it. This is becoming an epidemic in America. I'll tell you why. It's because of the government making it so stressful and difficult to earn a good living , Cutting funding on education that deals with early childcare, forcing smart people into the slave wage category by making college unaffordable for most middle class people to send their children,High interst rates on school loans, Making families work so hard to scrape together just enough to survive off of even when they should be retiring and helping their children raise their grandchildren, Or at least being around them often enough to see when there are problems. Plus All this crap about being PC where you're made to feel like you should not get involved when seeing this kind of stuff out in public! It's a very bad cycle and if things don't change soon, it's only going to get worse. Why don't they put the kid up for adoption. I'll tell you why, they do want and love their kid, It's a problem with them being angry and taking it out on someone who can't fight back, I'm not saying it's not wrong, but I know why it's done in many cases...in others it is serious mental issues, that if the family unit was TOGETHER enough, the other members in the family would see these issues and have the offending party treated, but as it is now, the family units are not together very often.The man and woman may work different shifts and days, etc etc...so they never see what the other is doing!

I too believe that child abuse is epidemic in America. The reason being stress related to the economy.
