If you don’t know who Catherine Schaible is, then please click on her picture below, and take your pick of the various news stories and blog posts in the search results.
The executive summary is that Ms Schaible’s son died aged two, and she was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. (Allegedly, her son died because Ms Schaible hadn’t called a doctor when her son fell ill.) She was sentenced to ten years probation. Recently, another of her five children, who was only eight months old, hardly what you’d call a “person” yet, also fell ill and died. Again, she hadn’t called the doctor. Again, she found herself in trouble with the law, in the fascist, theocratic state Pennsylvania.
A lot of bigoted fanatics have been saying unkind things about Ms Schaible online and in the media. I have been posting comments like the following on some of the websites that contain such criticism of her, criticism that is often very strongly worded, for example even calling this innocent woman a “murderer”, would you believe?
If you don’t want to kill YOUR baby by neglect, then don’t kill your baby by neglect. Simple.
It is nobody’s business but Catherine Schaible’s what she did with her OWN BABY. It is was her RIGHT, as a woman with inalienable reproductive rights, to CHOOSE whether or not to call the doctor when her baby was taken ill. All you fanatical zealots who want to force your beliefs in medical science down the throats of non-believers like Ms Schaible, need to learn to keep your noses out of other people’s bedrooms and family business.
