A mother slashed her five-day-old daughter to death because she ‘didn’t want her baby,’ police say. Hiralbahen Bhavsar, 29, was arrested in Little Ferry, New Jersey on Thursday after authorities say she sliced the infant’s throat and arm with a knife. She called police to her home claiming she had chest pains and told responding officers that her husband, Jaymin, was trying to kill her in their Liberty Street apartment. Jaymin was handcuffed, but other family members who were in the home began screaming: ‘No, no, not him,’ according to NorthJersey.com. Police wrote: ‘At this time, Hiralbahen exited a rear bedroom and began stating, “No, no not him. I did it. I killed my baby.”

Officers then found the lifeless baby in the bedroom with cuts to her arm and neck. Police questioned Hiralbahen, who told them she ‘didn’t want her baby’ and she killed the child.

Jaymin told investigators that his family was eating dinner when the baby began crying, so his wife took the baby into the rear bedroom. He said Hiralbahen then left the room without the infant, grabbed an item from the kitchen, then returned to the bedroom and locked the door. Just hours before the stabbing, She posted a photo of herself with the child and her husband, Fox reported, but it appears to have been taken down.

Neighbor Aradhana Thakur said that she did not know whether the mother was struggling with postpartum depression, and claimed Hiralbahen seemed ‘normal.’ She said: ‘I saw her yesterday and she was looking OK, normal, but I think she must be going through some sort of depression because no mother could do this to her child.’ Hiralbahen Bhavsar has been charged with first-degree murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.

Virginia Bill Would Legalize Abortion Up to Birth!!

emilycaines2

Democratic delegate Kathy Tran has introduced a bill in Virginia’s House of Delegates that would legalize abortion up to birth. When questioned about the bill today by Republican delegate Todd Gilbert, the Virginia House majority leader, Tran acknowledged that it would allow abortion even at the very end of pregnancy when a woman was going into labor.

The bill is called the Repeal Act because it would remove all existing restrictions on abortion in Virginia. That includes permitting abortion in the last three months of pregnancy, eliminating informed-consent and clinic-safety requirements, permitting late-term abortions to be performed in outpatient clinics, and removing pro-life initiatives such as ultrasound requirements and the state’s 24-hour waiting period. It has the backing of Virginia’s Democratic governor Ralph Northam.

Here’s part of their back-and-forth during questioning:

Gilbert: So how late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated it would impair the mental health of the woman?

Tran: Or physical health.

Gilbert: Okay. I’m talking about mental health.

Tran: I mean, through the third trimester. The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks.

Gilbert: So to the end of the third trimester?

Tran: Yes. I don’t think we have a limit in the bill.

Gilbert: So where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth, she has physical signs that she’s about give birth, would that still be a point at which she could still request an abortion if she was so certified? [pause] She’s dilating?

Tran: Mr. Chairman, you know, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician, and the woman would make.

Gilbert: I understand that. I’m asking if your bill allows that.

Tran: My bill would allow that, yes.
