I don’t even know what to say!

ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. – A South Carolina mother is facing charges after her sick baby was taken to an emergency room and nurses found maggots in the 10-month-old’s diaper.

NBC affiliate WYFF reports the baby boy also tested positive for drug exposure. According to a police report, Michelle Butler, 20, took the child to someone’s apartment, where they told her to get medical attention for the baby who appeared to have a fever.

What kind of mother allows her child to be in a diaper so long that maggots are hatched?  Have these young mothers just completely lost their maternal instinct?  I’m at a loss here.

You can now purchase a book of the screenshots that were gathered during my research of the case and see the reasons I was so upset about what was happening in Steubenville.
