Woman jailed for giving baby methadone-soaked dummy


news.bbc.co.uk

An Edinburgh woman who put methadone on a baby's dummy to stop him crying has been jailed for three years.

Susan Taylor, 29, admitted a charge of culpably and recklessly causing the child to ingest methadone, to the danger of his life in November 2008.
Although Taylor admitted the charge last September, the case could not be reported until Tuesday because her partner was facing trial.

Just when you thought you'd heard it all along comes a story tops them all .
Not only did this idiot put methadone on a baby's dummy but when the baby stopped breathing and the paramedics were called she decided not to tell them he had ingested methadone .
This story makes me sad and angry in equal measure , well more angry actually , isn't it time for enforced sterilization for these kind of cases ?

Very tough and sad story. Children should never have to be involved in this kind of destructive behavior. While admittedly my knee-jerk reaction was the same as yours, forced sterilization or even removal of child, you must take care when going down those lines of thought. If not for the liberty aspect of it, more for giving the power to do this to those whom have shown a propensity to abuse it. Very horrible and tragic situation nonetheless. S+F
