A parent’s worst nightmare is something bad happening to their child. That is why it is so inconceivable that newborn babies are more likely to die at their mother’s hand than their fathers. Mothers are supposed to be the protector of their children, putting their life in front of their own. Even in the animal world, mothers are the protector of the young and will go up against anything to save their young from harm. The idea of a mother harming her child let alone killing them is incomprehensible. These top ten mothers who killed their children go against every natural instinct a female is supposed to be born with.
