Chicago Justice: Small Fine and Probation for Murdering Newborn

Chicago Justice: Small Fine and Probation for Murdering Newborn

If it’s okay to kill your baby before it’s born, what moral argument can be made against killing it right afterward? Yet even in Chicago, killing a newborn can still get you fined and put on probation:

A woman who dropped her infant daughter to her death from an eighth-floor window in Uptown so her parents would not know she was pregnant pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years’ probation.

Mubashra Uddin, who was 19 when she was charged with first-degree murder in 2015, pleaded guilty Thursday to involuntary manslaughter, according to Cook County state’s attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton.

Judge Carol Howard sentenced Uddin to 48 months’ probation and ordered her to pay a $579 fine.

Even a baby’s life is worth a few hundred bucks.

Uddin had dropped the infant from the window shortly after giving birth, prosecutors said.

The naked, bloody, but still-breathing girl was found in a grassy area by a neighbor, who wrapped her in his shirt and blankets, then called paramedics. She was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital, where she died about 90 minutes later, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Turnock said the infant had suffered skull fractures, a spinal fracture, broken left shoulder, fractured left and right ribs, and a lacerated aorta, as well as damage to other internal organs, prosecutors have said.

At first Uddin denied everything, but she eventually had to admit to her ghastly crime.

At subsequent court hearings, Uddin’s lawyers and friends said she was overwhelmed by the pressure of raising a baby as an unwed mother in a pious immigrant family.

Uddin is a Muslim of Pakistani descent. No doubt that served as a get out of jail free card. Cultural incompetency and all. The precedent will keep us sliding down abortion’s slippery slope, ever deeper into moral depravity.
