Woman admits to dropping baby to death, gets probation

A woman who dropped her newborn baby to her death from a high-rise apartment after hiding her pregnancy from her parents in 2015 has been sentenced to probation, according to court records.

Mubashra Uddin, 20, on Thursday pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter of a family member before Cook County Judge Carol Howard and was sentenced to four years' probation, according to court records. The infant, Baby Jane Uddin in official documents, was found in the grass outside a high-rise in the 800 block of West Eastwood Avenue about 11:45 p.m. Nov. 11, 2015, and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital about an hour later.

Uddin originally had been charged with first-degree murder.

Uddin became pregnant by her boyfriend but did not tell her family because she knew her Muslim parents from Pakistan would not approve, prosecutors said at the time she was charged. Uddin gave birth to the 7-pound, 11-ounce girl and threw the infant out the window when she heard her mother approaching the bedroom, according to prosecutors.

Sad story. It's not the first time a teen in the U.S. has killed her child for the same reasons. Drowning in the bathtub has been a common method, after giving birth in the bathroom. This is just the tip of the iceberg on postpartum infanticide. Most of the murders occur undetected, the evidence destroyed.

Can someone tell me why that is illegal but abortion isn't? Does it matter if the baby is killed before or after birth?
Please chime in....I'm sure this will raise some ire.

I would like to know why this was "involuntary" manslaughter. What, did she slip when she got next to that window? Why did they drop the charge down, and if they were going to drop it down, why wasn't it dropped to manslaughter. Involuntary sure sounds accidental. This was not.

She would rather face jail than face being set on fire by her parents -- another "religion of peace" tenet.

They should make certain that she will never be able to conceive again.
