The myths persist.
No matter how many times mothers kill and seriously harm their own children the myth that this is exceptional persists.
Gabriela Espinosa, 23 was arrested early Saturday after police said she admitted drowning her 2 month old baby boy while they were interviewing her following a traffic stop, ABC TV station KFSN in Fresno, USA reported.
“What’s really unique in this situation isn’t just that an innocent child died, but that a child died at the hands of his own mother,” Fresno Police Department Deputy Chief Robert Nevarez said.
What is really unique about that? Mothers murder their own children more often than anyone else.
It is mind blowing how deep seated the refusal to acknowledge the true risk factors for children are.
