Criminal Charges

I'll optimistically assume that they won't be filed, but the fact that it's even an issue is hideous.

HOUSTON (AP) -- A 14-year-old girl on a return flight from a middle-school trip delivered a stillborn fetus in the bathroom of an airplane and disposed of it in a waste bin, police said Monday.

The girl, whom police did not identify, said she didn't know she had been pregnant. Preliminary autopsy results indicated the fetus was stillborn and not viable, police said.


Police Sgt. Ryan Chandler said results of the investigation would be turned over to prosecutors ''to decide whether or not they're going to file any criminal charges.''

...and, yes, this does highlight the fact that men and women are indeed a wee bit different.
