A woman recently threw her 11-year-old autistic son off the balcony of their 4th floor apartment. He will most likely survive, but is undergoing a lot of surgeries and therapy.
She is now charged with attempted murder.
I agree with this charge. As you know, I have an autistic son, and life with him can be a challenge, but murder is never right.
Or isn’t it?
It is ok to kill, or allow to die, a newborn baby that is unwanted, according to laws in many states here in the US.
This 11-year-old isn’t much less dependant on his mother than that newborn.
Again, I ask, how old is too old?
