    It is shocking that people would do this.

    These types of people shouldn’t be called ‘parents’ or ‘mothers’ and ‘fathers.’ They should just start calling them ‘breeders,’ just like in the animal world. Another case for forced sterilization. How many more unwanted, unloved, emotionally or physically abandoned kids will this breeder spit out in her lifetime?

    It breaks my heart when people who don’t want and can’t take care of children have them anyway in the name of ” pro-life”. It’s sickening! Get an abortion – you don’t deserve to bring a child into this world! The father is 20 and the mother is 27 – that says a lot. He just wants to party, probably didn’t mean to knock her up. She can’t take care of the kid. Sad all around. I hope they find a good home for the little girl, away from her unfit parents!

      Or when they find out that they’re pregnant they could immediately begin searching for adoptive parents who are desperate for a baby but can’t have one of their own. You know, either way, really.

    typical actions. by a parent who has a first name similar to Kendal.

  5. Steven says:

    Breaks my heart to see how many people don’t care about their children. They have no problems with just leaving this poor defensless child anywhere. I guess it could have been worse if they left the child in a ditch, garbage can, or killed her. Still very sad. The child is going to grow up knowing the mother and father didn’t care or love her.
