first of all political affiliation has nothing to do with this....second.....I have no compassion for baby killers....and if you define somebody who would kill an innocent child as merely needing help...then you are just as fucked up...IF she was the perp, yes give her the damn needle....MY definition of "sick" has no bearing on the facts.....somebody murdered a child...wait till it's YOUR child in the cross hairs, and see if you want to hold their hands and sing we are the world with them

... and, being a compassionate conservative, and a nurse, you will want to treat this sick individual, not simply incarcerate her, right? Or do you wish to give the death penalty to someone who is, by your definition, sick?
