A woman who drowned her newborn baby so that she could get to an exam at Kamloops’ Thompson Rivers University just got two years’ probation from a sympathetic provincial court judge because she claimed the baby was the result of a sexual assault.

“You can hardly even call this a slap on the wrist,” said Jack Fonseca of the Campaign Life Coalition. “The same excuses used to justify abortion are now being applied to justify the murder of children after birth. I think it can be argued that this judge is decriminalizing child murder through the back door, by precedent.”

Crown prosecutor Will Burrows told the court that Courtney Saul, now 19, gave birth to a baby boy, whom she named George Carlos, in the morning of December 15 in the bathroom of her basement apartment in Kamloops. “She held the baby for some time, but she had an exam that day. Because she had the exam, she didn’t know what to do. She finally decided she should drown the baby. She did that in the sink and then she went to her exam.”

But first she put the body in a box, the box in a backpack and the backpack in the trunk of her car, intending to bury it in her hometown of Lillooet. But three weeks later she loaned the car to a friend who was involved in a collision, when George Carlos’s corpse was discovered by police.
