Amber Alert

Last night, all over my state, the following AMBER Alert was issued:

LIC/AJD7417 (WA) 2001 White BMW 330CI

Police are asking for assistance in locating a baby delivered this morning at home in Mill Creek. The infant, Annabelle Martini, is suffering from life threatening medical conditions and is in need of medical attention. The infant is believed to be with her twenty year old mother, Jamie Martini. Martini fled with the infant and has not sought medical treatment for the child. Martini is not in contact with family.


My husband said, “So today everyone in the state is looking for baby girl to treat her medical conditions, but yesterday baby girl could have been terminated because of her presumed medical conditions?”

I said, “Yes, and today mama does not have the right to choose what is best medically for baby girl; yesterday mama could have chosen independently to address all of baby girl’s medical needs by terminating the pregnancy.”


I do not understand this world in which we live.
