Article here. Excerpt:

'A woman has been jailed for seven and a half years after dropping her newborn daughter out of a window because 'she was worried a baby would ruin her career'.

Katarina Jovanovic, 28, from Lauffen am Neckar, Baden-Wuerttemberg State, Germany, was found guilty of manslaughter at the Heilbronn District Court on Wednesday, July 3.

Judges heard how she had given birth at home in secret 10 months ago on September 12 and then dropped her baby daughter from her apartment window almost 12 feet onto the tarmac below.

Horrified passersby found the minutes-old infant's body with a shattered skull underneath Jovanovic's balcony and called the police.'

I wouldn't be in a big hurry to pin her behavior on feminism per se. There are undoubtedly a lot of feminist women who think motherhood has slowed their careers down and have NOT defenestrated their babies. No, I see this as a case of her being nuts. Now, being crazy doesn't mean you aren't responsible for your actions. To plead insanity you have to be REALLY nuts. I mean, barking at the moon, howling mad nuts. That isn't her. So she belongs in jail for murder though, not merely manslaughter. She should be in for 20 to life as far as I'm concerned.
