No doctor would have prescribed birth control pills to a pregnant girl. a physical exam is required to get a RX. he would have known she was pregnant and not prescribed them.

Good question. In a situation like this, one might also ask if he had a factor in the baby's death!

From the exhibits shown during the court case, the initial birth control prescription was terminated and gives the reason that the patient was pregnant. She lied to her mother that she was taking the pills to cover up the pregnancy. She went back to the doctor before the police were called to try and get back on the pill. The doctor asked about the pregnancy, and she told the doctor that she had the baby at home, the baby was stillborn, and she buried the baby in the back yard.

What gets me is that even after the fire investigator determined that there were no signs of an accelerant used, the prosecution still went with the story that she set the baby on fire in order to cremate the baby. There is no evidence it happened. The prosecution gave a copy of the report to the defense as part of discovery, but then when defense tried to use it, the prosecution got it blocked saying it couldn't be substantiated. So, the jury did not hear the evidence that showed the supposed attempt to cremate the baby could not have happened. This evidence would not only show that allegation for the lie it is, but it would shred the coerced confession made where Skylar goes along with the police and finally 'admits' to trying to cremate the baby after the police went after her with it for hours. It shows how corrupt the prosecution is here.

What I see is a scared kid who was in over her head. If she's convicted, she could spend the rest of her life in prison for something she is unlikely to have done. I do not think she did it at all.

He testified at one point. He had no clue she was pregnant. He was her date for the prom, and in the prom photos she is skinny and doesn't look pregnant at all. This was two days before she gave birth.

How far along was she in her pregnancy, do you know? Was she full term?

I don’t know for certain if she murdered the baby or not. But she didn’t do anything to help it live either after it was born or in the womb. She starved herself during the entire pregnancy so yes a possibility of still birth, but after the baby was born I don’t think she did anything to help it breath or get things going, in addition to not calling for help yet again. When a baby is just born they need things done especially to start the breathing. Doubtful anything was done.

I saw her prom photos and you can tell she's pregnant.

This article makes some things clear.

She saw the doc on April 27, and delivered later on May 7, and in autopsy the baby was judged to be 38-40 weeks along, which is fully full term.

Her "fundal height", which the doctor measures by tape measure showed the baby was small for that gestational age, but the article goes on to acknowledge that's not accurate at the end of pregnancy and in fact, the baby was within the size range for a 38-40 week full term baby.

She doesn't recall anything about a placenta being present which, to me, makes it clear she was in some kind of fugue - likely at a birth.

Im wondering if this girl even knew what a placenta was ? you talk to some kids that age and they are like whats that ? seriously kids at 19 now are not like 19 was when we were that age . At 19 I was living on my own , paying bills , making a car payment and working a full time job . I know most 19 year olds are not doing that these days . im wondering if this girl even knew how she got pregnant .
