FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a Florence woman has been charged in the death of her unborn child after medical personnel determined the umbilical cord had been intentionally severed. Florence police said 30-year-old Jennifer Darlene Johnson was charged with manslaughter Monday morning. Johnson was seven months into her pregnancy. Florence police investigator Capt. Ron Tyler said Johnson was taken to Helen Keller Hospital in Sheffield Friday night, where the baby was delivered dead. Tyler said hospital personnel determined the umbilical cord had been severed while still in Johnson’s uterus. Investigators believe the death of the infant is directly related to the intentional cutting of the umbilical cord. Johnson is being held on $50,000 bail.

I don’t understand the world’s reasoning on this.
