Arrest after baby found in trash bag

Hampton police have arrested a woman after a newborn girl was found abandoned inside a trash bag.

The Virginian-Pilot reported 30-year-old Kimberly Vick Fisher of Hampton was charged with attempted murder Saturday. She is being held in the Hampton City Jail.

Police say the baby was found Friday in a wooded area. Her umbilical cord was still attached.

The newspaper says the infant didn’t appear to have life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

It wasn’t immediately known whether Fisher had an attorney. A telephone call to the jail went unanswered Sunday night.

All the woman had to do was to leave the baby at a hospital or at a fire station.

People are so stupid, just put the baby in a trash bag and walk away...cold blooded and how could you live with yourself...she stills needs the chair just for having the thought...for all the time it took to bag and drop she could have put her on the door step of someone!!!

Let's see...countless ways to avoid getting pregnant if you don't want a child and NONE of those seemed like a good idea.
But delivering the child then attempting to murder it seems like a good option?
Some people should just be sterilized...

BigDaddy...you're correct! While i'm pro-choice (not pro-abortion, but pro-contraception)...treating a viable infant like trash is sub-human.
