I just heard the news this morning on the Roy Green Show here in Hamilton and quite frankly, I'm both confused and upset. It seems convicted sex-motivated killer, Karla Homolka has had a baby and is keeping it. Obviously, up until now, the fact that she was even pregnant has been kept extremely hushed up.
In case you haven't heard of this notorious Canadian killer, please go here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/bernardo/Â
Excuse me if I sound cold, but this is a travesty in my eyes. Most people know about the vicious killings that Homolka committed along with her twisted and dangerous husband, Paul Bernardo. Together, they ravished and killed two teenage girls, as well as Homolka's own sister.
It is beyond my depth of understanding to even consider the idea of letting this woman keep her baby. I think it will turn out to be devastating for the child, when she learns whatÂ their mother has done. And I can only begin to imagine how the child will be treated by her peers.
If this situation had occurred in Ontario, the baby would have been taken by the Children's Aid from Homolka the minute she was born. I have to wonder why this didn't happen in Quebec.
It has been hypothesized that letting Homolka become a mother will teach her about real love and change her as a person. Sorry, I don't agree. It is not worth the risk to the child.
Â As well, I wonder what the victim's families are thinking about this. Isn't it enough that she got early parole and has been allowed to carry on with her life? This is just another in a long line of slaps in the face and further proof that the Canadian justice system is not all it's cracked up to be.
