Woman Kills Baby Because "When you have a child with autism, your life is ruined."
I did it. I killed my baby.
When you have a child with autism, your life is ruined.
Those statements and others made by Stephanie Rochester will be admissable evidence if her case goes to trial.
Rochester is accused of using blankets and a plastic bag to kill her six-month-old son, Rylan.
Medical professionals who evaluated the boy say he was developing neurotypically. He was never diagnosed with autism.
Autism Speaks and other supposed advocates for autistic people continue to push the message that having a child with autism is a fate worse than death.
That message kills people.
Now that you know sometimes the people it kills are neurotypical, do you care?
