Woman Murders Infant, Tosses It Into Trash
Um, yeah. Christians keep saying (or assuming) that parenthood equates to instant maturity and godliness, but this woman killed her baby and tossed it into the trash. This also works against the notion of gender complementarians that a woman’s only or greatest calling in life is to be a mother. Clearly, some women are not cut out to be mothers.
- The newborn boy’s body was found Nov. 12 at a recycling plant hours after his death.
SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. — A woman charged with murdering her newborn son confessed, police say, telling them she didn’t want the baby and hid the pregnancy from her relatives and housemates.
Maria Oliva Guaman-Guaman, 23, is being held without bail in Rockland County jail after being arraigned Tuesday in Spring Valley Justice Court on a charge of second-degree murder, accused of strangling her infant and leaving his body in a recycling bin in the New York suburbs.
… “There were tears, but I can’t really say she was remorseful,” Modica said of the mother. “She told the investigator she didn’t want the child, and later on she said, ‘I can’t afford another child.'”
… The infant, whom police dubbed Baby Angel, was found hours later Nov. 12 at Brookfield Recycling in Elmsford, N.Y. The baby’s umbilical cord was still attached, leading police to believe he was killed shortly after his birth.
… Police believe the baby was both born and killed at Guaman-Guaman’s home, about 30 miles north of New York City.
