In a society where teens are already sexually active and where couples refuse to have family planning before engaging in sexual activities, it is inevitable to have a high rate of unwanted pregnancies. An unintended pregnancy is a pregnancy that is mistimed, unplanned, or unwanted at the time of conception.
While many couples fail in conceiving babies for years, these teens easily kills and throw away their own children—without thinking about the consequences it may bring. This teen from Omaha Nebraska killed her own baby after giving birth to the newborn.
According to 16-year-old Antonia Lopez, she threw her newborn baby out of her window because of her ‘shock’. She claimed it was an accident, and that she didn’t mean to kill her baby. She informed her mother of the incident, but it was already too late—even when Antonia’s mother tried to perform CPR on the baby.
She then posted a status on Facebook, if anyone of her friends had a car. The fact that she thought crying to her friend for a car was the best of action while her child lay on the street, dying, speaks volumes about her true personality and nature.
Antonia’s grandfather, John Barcelona, was shocked after he received the news of his granddaughter’s pregnancy: ‘It’s caught me by surprise. I just can’t believe it. Stunned. She looked like she was well underweight more than anything else, I would’ve never dreamed that she was pregnant. In my head, I just can’t believe it, I can’t believe it.’
Furthermore, one of Antonia’s friends came to her defense, stating that: ‘Something had to have been going on for her to freak out and do this because I’m telling you, she is nothing like this. I talked to her everyday, like seriously. And she might’ve said that baby doll project was annoying but that doesn’t mean she thinks all babies are annoying, so many people in my class said that when they had that project. She was never really one to talk about her home life so I believe something could’ve been going on where she wasn’t comfortable… You never know.’
The baby doll project refers to other photos Lopez had taken, related to a school project:
Lopez is now set to be tried as an adult for her daughter’s death.
