I'm sorry but I can't agree that the motivation matters. The fact is the girl gave birth, allowed her baby to die in a toilet and then threw it in a dumpster. The reason I don't think motivation matters coincides with the general belief (as I see it) on this board that a child molester's motivation (it happened to him as a child is often the biggest predictor of future behavior) doesn't matter either. As I understand the general consensus of the board members, it is enough to say it is a crime against a child and that makes the perpetrator unfit to live in society, literally. My whole point in wanting opinions is to point out that if we are going to kill everyone who commits a crime against a child, then the woman should be put to death as well. If we make allowances for her, something doesn't add up.

By the way, I do agree that the sex offender registry is bothersome as well. If it is to be done, it must be done across the board.
