If you have been paying attention to the news, you might have noticed the story about the young Somolian woman, 28-year old Ebyan Farah, who killed two of her five children by locking them in a closet. She is reported to have made this a regular act, as she would put them in the hot closet for hours at a time while she was cooking, or for a punishment. You would assume that she would be thrown under the bus for this deplorable act and smacked with a murder charge. No.
The prosecutor found that the offense is not murder, but neglect. I am assuming that a charge of neglect would lend a lighter sentence than murder. It is becoming a regular in the news to read of a parent who has murdered their child. Which is why there should be strict repercussions for such heinous acts. Because of this woman’s cruelty a three year old and four year old are dead.
Indianapolis Police Department Detective Scott Scheid told the Indy Star, the deceased children, as well as their mother and surviving siblings, appeared to be extremely thin and possibly suffering from dehydration. The children were found “in a state of rigor mortis in a front living room” of an apartment in the Manchester Village complex. They might have been dead for about two hours by the time police responded to a 911 call at 8:40 p.m., Scheid said, and there were no visible wounds on their bodies.

This is why I encourage young women to not bring a child into the world that you are not ready for. Take your time in deciding to become a mother. If you feel that you are not emotionally or financially stable enough to bring a child into this world then don’t. Do whatever it takes to prevent yourself from having an unwanted pregnancies. Or even if you have no interest in children but find yourself in a situation where you are with child, do not feel obligated to care for a child that you will resent and mistreat. There are other options such as adoption and even in extreme cases abortion.
Either is better than you bringing an unwanted child into this world, and abusing them in some way because you do not know how to be a good mother.
This woman should have been charged with murder, because that is what she did. She may not have purposely tried to kill them, but her neglect led to their death.
Should the woman receive sympathy? Do you think that the woman has deeper issues?
