    I am horrified and torn over this case. Who is responsible? The mother who is clearly ill? The biodad and/or the woman's extended family for not stepping in sooner? The psychiatric hospital and/or maternity doctor for not following her more closely postpartum? How does her execution help anyone? Where were the safeguards to protect the safety of her child when she clearly had a history of mental illness and was very clearly unstable shortly after delivery?

    I don't know that she should be executed but sterilization should definitely be in her future.
