Mom Reportedly Killed 5 Babies Because Her Husband Didn't Want More Kids

Twisted 84

baby graveIt's taken six years, but the woman suspected of killing five babies whose bodies were abandoned around one German town has finally been arrested. Police say the killer was the babies' own mother, a woman who has two more living children at home! And if that isn't disturbing enough, wait until you hear the reason she allegedly murdered her own kids.

Police say the woman -- whose name is being withheld because of German law -- thought her husband would leave her if she had more kids.

Seriously? What kind of excuse is that for murder? Murder of your own children no less?

Of all the insane done things to keep your man from getting angry, this one has to be one of the worst. She didn't just make up a little white lie here about how that dent in the van must have happened when someone hit her car in the grocery store parking lot. Cops say she actually hid five pregnancies from her husband, then gave birth to five different babies -- two at home, three in the woods (!?) -- and then brutally murdered them.

Then, and somehow this really bothers me for some reason, this "mom" allegedly scattered the bodies around town. This isn't a woman who sounds like she was really sad about killing her babies. Even their bodies were treated like refuse, thrown away, abandoned, all to cover up what? Babies who this man was technically just as responsible for producing as her?

The cops have described this family as fairly well-off, meaning she could easily have done something about all these pregnancies. She could have gotten an abortion (or five)? Heck, she could have gotten her tubes tied or told her husband that if he didn't want any more kids, then he could man up and get snipped.

Anything would have been better than this atrocious crime.

Do you have any sympathy for this woman's plight?

I have absolutely NO sympathy for this woman! There are so many options that she had to not get pregnant in the first place that there is no reason this should have ever happened...especially 5 times in a row!!!! Um...if they were so adamant to not have any more kids they should have taken the necessary steps to prevent that from happening and murder is DEFINITELY not one of those steps!

Well, abortions cost money, and if you're going to kill the baby either way...it doesn't really matter when I guess. Granted most women couldn't ACTUALLY kill a baby once they are holding it, that's why abortion is so convenient for us. But saying anything would have been better (aka abortion) is like saying if you're going to have an affair do it during the engagement period and not the marriage, cause after you're married, it's totally different.
Pretty sad that she would just kill her babies to appease her husbands lifestyle wishes. However women do it for ourselves to appease our lifestyle wishes every day.

She hid 5 pregnancies? Really? I'm sorry, but I feel like the husband had to know something was up or there had to be some sort of history with that couple.

No sympathy she could have used birth control, aborted them, put them up for adoption or just kept her damn legs shut! There's no excuse to murder an innocent baby!

I find it hard to believe she hid 5 pregnancies to term... He had to know about it. More than likely he had something to do with it and she's covering for him. I just feel like there's a huge part of the story missing here.

Yes, an early term abortion IS different; if it's before 6 weeks and a heart beat. But that's rare. And yes it still may look different during the first trimester, but it's still brutal, and done for convenience factor.
Killing a child and destroying another life for sheer convenience of your own is what is idiotic. I can't see how taking a life EVER, is justified unless it's a life or death situation. SO no, abortion is no 'better'. Simply 'kinder'. And 'kinder' murder for convenience is still murder.

My common sense tells me not to take another life unless its a life or death situation. Apparently, yours does not.

What Megan said!


It's interesting that she is SO horrible for killing her newborns.  Yet if she did it a few months before it wouldn't matter.

People couldn't resist turning this into an abortion debate. Figures.


To address the actual question/article...no I do not have any sympathy for this woman's plight. This day in age there are so many easily acquired preventative measure for pregnancy, abortion, and adoption if you don't want to parent.

Megan and micheledo are right on the money.
