Wanted Babies

Dear mouse,

Eery minute, every second, unwanted babies end up in trash bins, doorsteps, churches, toilets and even in unlikely place such as under a vehicle.

And yet, there are women who are in desperate need for babies that they'd do anything to have one.

The case was not an ordinary kidnapping but was a murder to get the fetus from the womb before it was delivered.

Woman Said to Show Off Stolen Baby

Sunday, December 19, 2004

MELVERN, Kan. — A woman charged with killing an expectant mother and cutting the baby from her womb was showing the child off to people at a cafe and to her pastor hours before she was arrested, residents said Saturday.

Lisa M. Montgomery , 36, was charged Friday with kidnapping resulting in murder and was expected to appear in federal court Monday. The baby, whose mother had been eight months pregnant, was in good condition.

The arrest stunned many in this community of about 420 residents who apparently had believed for months that Lisa Montgomery was pregnant.

U.S. Attorney Todd Graves said Lisa Montgomery contacted Stinnett through an online message board after seeing a Web site about the rat terriers Stinnett bred and raised. The site included a picture of Stinnett, showing she was pregnant.

Wanted Heir

Crown Princess Masako has to give birth to a baby boy for the heir to the throne of the Crown Prince.The pressure made the princess suffer from depression so that she retreated from public life of a princess.

The Japanese royals may not be as scandalous as Britain's Windsors have managed to be, but Japan's royal household is facing a crisis - there is no heir apparent once the current Crown Prince Naruhito ascends to the throne. Only men can ascend to Japan's Chrysanthemum Throne and no male has been born to the imperial family since the 1960s. That would leave the obvious candidate, Crown Prince Naruhito's and Crown Princess Masako's three-year-old daughter Aiko, out of the line of succession. However, with it looking less and less likely that Crown Princess Masako, who is suffering from a well-publicized bout of depression, will have another child, the question on many people's minds is whether the succession law be amended to allow Aiko to become empress.

nabasa ko yang magnanakaw ng fetus na yan. samantalang sa pinas, yong fetus(ng baboy) ginagawang dinuguan. i wanted to adopt a baby girl in pinas, but the hassle from the US embassyis enough for me to pull my hair. so i just dropped the idea.
regarding to the Royal Princess in Japok, if Princess Aiko becomes the heir to the throne, baka maraming mag Harakiri or sepuku na mga kelot, kasi dehins pa sila prepared sa ebot na ruler.

sheesh...that was a wild story! i never knew that people could be that desperate to have a baby and, as you mentioned, there are unwanted babies being disposed of left and right.

it's one of the great mysteries of life, how come those who really want a baby are those who end up having difficulty in conceiving, while those who will just probably sell their kids for dinner, are those who have them in succession.

sheesh

While the first story is shocking, nakakaawa naman yung pangalawa. First, how can someone with a conscience do what that first woman did is beyond me. Yun namang princess is caught up in a tradition created by man and could really be depressing. I'm surprised she hasn't commmitted hara kiri yet.

Susme, dito kung saan saan iniiwan ang mga fetus after the abortion. Sa simbahan, sa kalye...
