    Well I hope the charges are upgraded! "Child abandonment and endangerment" is a ridiculous understatement.

    It should be 2 charges of murder. Makes me sick.

    Horrible!!! She did this ON PURPOSE.

    So, so tragic when little children are left in a hot car
    accidentally... but this was done ON. PURPOSE.

    Wow. When I see crap like this, all I can think
    about is all of the childless adults out there who could
    have given these babies a better life than this little
    brat who didn't seem to want them.

    I'm really thinking we just need to implant everyone with birth control at age 10 and when you are 21 after passing the appropriate classes, you can apply for parenthood and have it removed if approved.

    This breaks my heart ! I can't imagine what those two babies went through in their last 15 hours. So so very sad and preventable .

    It will probably end up as involuntary manslaughter. In order to get a murder conviction, you have to prove that she intended to kill them. The DA is probably waiting for the autopsy results before bringing more charges.

    I just about this story in the NY Daily News.

    The mother is 19-years-old and the oldest child was 2 years-old, the youngest a year-old. The mother left the kids alone in the SUV to spend the night with friends, which included a 16-year-old boy.

    This is clearly a tragedy. But it is also an argument as to why teenagers aren't prepared to be parents. Birth control services provided by organizations such as Planned Parenthood should be expanded, not curtailed.

    This teenage mother had TWO kids before she was even 20! And she clearly lacked support and common sense needed to raise them properly. Who knows what other types of abuse they endured before their deaths.

    Sad that none of the "friends" in the house with her had any concern about the kids either.

    I held my babies extra tight when I read that.

    I agree to a point, but she doesn't seem like someone responsible enough to bother with birth control- free or otherwise. And if she didn't have much sex education, that issue was clearly resolved after the first child. Some people are just horrible people and no amount of free social service will make them "good" ...or even decent. She might have even wanted the kids for the benefits that came along with them. She actually started a gofundme to help with the purchase of a house at one point!
