Andrea Yates abortion

Was she guilty of murder, infanticide? When one looks at the evidence without allowing emotion to interfer, it appears that her actions were justified. Given that none of the children had entered adolescence, we see that they were still developing. My contention is that she simply performed what is called a live-birth abortion. Many clinics and hospitals around the country have begun performing similar proceedures on babies soon after birth when a mother decides post-birth that she does not want the child. This realization came later for Andrea Yates than it did for most people. Now you have my opinion, tell me yours.
