    I feel this is disgusting!!! These two individuals obviously were not ready for parenthood and should have given these poor defensless babies to someone who longs to have children and would give them a SAFE and LOVING enviroment. They should be prosecuted and given the help the need and never have children AGAIN.

    Animals aren’t evil. These people are. Hope they are locked up for a very very long time and lose ALL parental rights.

    these two should be beaten to death to see how it feels! why do people have children if they are not going to care for them. give them up for adoption already to someone that will love and nurture them and take care of them. These two should never be forgiven and deserve to go to hell for abusing their children. Don’t let me see them in a life or death situation, i would walk away and let them die for doing that to inoccent, helpless children that didn’t ask to be born…..
