I’m putting this in the Pit because I really don’t know what to make of this, and if you want to excoriate me on feminist grounds of some sort, my mind is open and I’ll listen and possibly change my thoughts. But my first thought is, fuck her. (I know, someone already did, apparently.)
If dad is in the picture, the baby can be his responsibility and she can damn well go through her trial and be treated exactly as any person would be. If dad is not in the picture (or if dad is whatsisname, her ex-boyfriend/co-conspirator who is also indicted), find that kid a legal guardian and completely strip her of any rights to the child.
Exercising the capacity of your ovaries should not be a way to get out of the punishment she so richly deserves.
(I do think the child should have a right to know about his/her parents, though. I would support visitation rights on the child’s behalf - not hers - as long as the situation was handled with the child’s best interests in mind.)
