Fair to whom? Phrased this way, it seems almost as if the child's being "happy" and "healthy" was her primary concern.
That is laudable. Or would be, if it were so.
She wouldn't have been able to "raise" a "happy, healthy child."
That is understandable, she was young, sexually active without being in a committed relationship.
So to be "fair" to the child whom she couldn't "raise"
That was fair.
Is she, is anyone actually surprised to "see shame and embarrassment around" choosing someone else's death over ones own inconvenience, disruption of college, damper put on plans?
Is the world so ugly that a time could come when there will be no stigma attached to such callousness?
Dear God, I pray not.
