Lisa Montgomery, the first woman to be executed by the US government in nearly 70 years | DW News

Lisa Montgomery could be the first woman to face the death penalty in nearly 70 years. She was convicted for murdering a pregnant woman Bobbie Jo Stinnett and taking her unborn child, trying to pass the baby girl off as her own. In spite of her gruesome crime her supporters say she doesn’t deserve to die. As a child Montgomery was a victim of severe abuse. Her lawyers say she suffered
incest, gang-rape and brain damage.
The 52-year-old is being held in a prison in Indiana. She’s scheduled to die by lethal injection on January 12th. Multiple courts have rejected her appeals. Only outgoing President Donald Trump could stop the execution.
Under Trump, the US restarted federal executions for the first time in almost two decades. Montgomery is one of three inmates scheduled to die before his term ends. Trump’s successor Joe Biden once supported the death penalty but has now pledged to end its use.

What they described as her tortuous childhood is horrific and heartbreaking. Having said that, I’m sorry but it does not excuse the violent gruesome senseless murder that she committed!
I grieve for the victim. I hope the child's mother is given the same concern and consideration by the people defending her murderer.

She cut a child out of another women, stole a mother from a child. Redemption? Should be shown the same mercy she shown her poor victim.

I just found an article on Yahoo trying to tell the story of her final hours. But I didn't see anything there about the suffering in the final minutes of her victim's life, or lifetime of suffering that child that remains will have to go through.

There is no amount of suffering this criminal could have suffered that would be too much.

If I was that child and I grew up to find out the women who ripped me out of my mum was being fed and clothed and given life in prison. Then You going to have another 'BROKEN' person. So anything I do should be justified

What’s worse is that when child protective services finally came to the rescue in 1970, they took her older sister but not her. Her sister went to live in a loving foster home while she was left with her terrible stepmother and her mental health just dwindled from there.
I was abused very badly when I was a child. Yes it changed me but I have never killed anyone as it’s wrong so sorry but why all the support I never had any support.
true gender equality

She should be in a prison for the criminally insane.
yeah i'm not shedding a tear for this psychopath. once you do something like that to another human being, you really don't get to come back.
,Lisa Marie Montgomery, then aged 36, was convicted of strangling Stinnett from behind and then removing Stinnett's unborn child, eight months into gestation, from her womb.

Excuses! excuses! I was mentally, physically and emotionally abused by my mother. Raised myself from the age of 12. Hurting a human being as never crossed my mind. Being my better self was my goal. I earned 2 degrees and now run my own business. Lots of people experience terrible up bringing. let's call a spade a spade....

Any thoughts for her victims, maybe?
Besides, many people suffer abuse daily, in their childhood or not, and they don't become criminals.

She is not the only woman on death row for a crime like this! Linda Carty is on death row for same kind of crime!

Justice was done ✔️
Hopefully you can catch Trump before he makes the turn to play the back nine.
Montgomery's supposed 'horrific abuse' was never alledged until she was on trial, when such info is considered a mitigating circumstance.

Two wrongs don't make a right.
She shouldn't have been executed but kept in prison.
Green river killer , susan smith , golden state killer , btk have done far worse and yet not executed. The U.S legal system is quite complex indeed.

I’d bet most of the people on death row are special needs.
She was just granted a stay, for a competency hearing. But men who killed their pregnant wives are not given the death penalty. From 1990 to 2004, 1,367 pregnant women were killed by their partner. Discrimination at it's worst.
