3 dead babies found in freezer; mother arrested

May 6, 2008


— Three dead babies have been found stuffed in a freezer of a large family home in the town of Wenden in northwestern Germany, local TV said Monday.

Their 44-year-old mother, whose name has not been disclosed, was arrested on suspicion of killing the newborn babies, presumably in the late 1980s as one of the bodies was wrapped in a newspaper dated 1988.

The woman is married to a 47-year-old electrician and has two sons, aged 18 and 22, and a 24-year-old daughter.

The mother was driven to the police station by her family after two of her children came across the gruesome findings while looking for something to eat in the basement fridge.

The forensic team ruled out the possibility that the babies were stillborn, but it is still unclear whether they were breathing when put into the freezer. Autopsies to establish the cause of death will be carried out as soon as the bodies are thawed.

According to preliminary reports, the woman was able to easily conceal the three pregnancies from her family because she was overweight.

I'm callous because I think that if they had been medically removed before they had any concept of pain or fear instead of murdered and dumped in a deep freeze, it would've been better for them? That's the typical thinking I expect out of a pro life nutjob such as yourself, STRS. I can't even wrap my head around someone that's as dumb as you are. You would seriously have those babies murdered instead of aborted? You are a psycho, buddy, I hope you know that. And, lucky man, yeah, I said pro life nutjob, what of it. Any jerkoff that wants to prosletyze at me about his sky god, using that as a basis to write laws that govern MY body is a nutjob, plain and simple.

Some of you seem to think this is better than an abortion.I don't agree. It's the same thing.

Anarchistatheist.... how about just doing what is right and moral? Unwanted kids are born with and without legalized murder. Too bad your mom didn't exercise the right choice. Instead she gave birth to a pro-baby killing heathen who pushes a baby killing agenda. Why don't do the right thing and cut open the back of your neck and suck your brains out the same way late term abortions are done. That way you aren't around to influence anymore minds of mush to murder someone with no voice.

Maybe, STRS, if the woman had had abortions when these babies were still little clumps of cells, her grown children wouldn't have come across their bodies while digging thru the deep freeze. But, you wouldn't care about that, would you? No, your comments go right to abortion and how abortion crazed we are as a society, which, makes no sense at all when looking at the meat of this story. You pro life nuts are all the same. You couldn't give a crap about people once they're out of the womb.

Sadly, our abortion-crazed society lessens the value of human life. We shouldn't be surprised when we read articles like this.

and where were all of you anti-life mongers when the coat hanger came looking for you?

Original CA, Do you advocate murder to prevent murder? Seems a little like them, to me. For example:"We will continue to read about such tragedy as long as we have forces who take away a woman's right to choose."Confused here. Read about tragedy instead of allowing a woman to choose tragedy? Didn't she choose? Or would you rather someone else perform the killings for her?"You would seriously have those babies murdered instead of aborted?"Murdered instead of aborted?Killed instead of killed?"her grown children wouldn't have come across their bodies while digging thru the deep freeze."As opposed to having the murdered babies "properly" disposed of? In a "sanitary" type of way? Now, what if the adult children came across them in jars in her pantry - with little suction holes in their head? Are you more concerned about the feelings of the adult children rather than the murdered children?

Tragedies like this demean the whole anit-abortion crudsade. Three babies this woman never should have given birth too, and where is the idiot or idiots who provided the sperm for these births? Probably somewhere carrying an anti-abortion sign. We will continue to read about such tragedy as long as we have forces who take away a woman's right to choose. Religion claims to celebrate women, but it reduces women to subserviant, baby machines. We should not be surprised to read stories of women pushed over the edge.

janeyb and acg make the argument that these murdered children should have been aborted rather than brought into the world. Their cold, callous attitude is similar to the opinions held by Margaret Sanger, eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood. Sanger held the elitist, misogynist view that some women simply should not have children and that the human race could advance more quickly if we didn't allow certain "undesirables" to get pregnant or give birth. The opinions shared by janeyb and acg only reinforce my point that the abortion mentality in our society has steadily cheapened the value of human life, even those who have survived pregnancy.

The Pro-Lifers should be happy. She kept them to full-term and then did this.

"You would seriously have those babies murdered instead of aborted?" -acgacg,You commit intellectual suicide by stating that. Either that or you reveal an IQ of around 70.

You brought religion into, acg. No one else.

What's for dinner?Leg of cow, leg of lamb, leg of ..... ewwwww.Guess they'll book her for performing abortions without a license. But, aren't you allowed to self medicate? I mean these little blobs of cells couldn't survive on their own and would harm the mother's life(style).
