Historical Fact: NOW Supported Child Murderer Andrea Yates

by Welmer on June 2, 2010

Because a feminist commenter has called me a liar for saying that feminists support the right of women to kill family members without consequences, I’d like to highlight the efforts of the National Organization for Women to overturn Andrea Yates’ conviction for murdering her five children.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Houston Area National Organization for Women is rallying support for Andrea Pia Yates, the Clear Lake mother who has admitted to drowning her five children.

In addition to forming the Andrea Pia Yates Support Coalition, the local chapter of NOW plans to help raise money for Yates’ defense fund, the organization’s state president said Thursday.


Shortly after Andrea Yates was arrested, NOW adopted a resolution regarding postpartum depression during a national conference, Bell said. The resolution urges the judiciary to “consider tragedies of this sort in the full context of the nature of postpartum depression,” and calls for more research into the illness.

So there you have it. Child murder totally excusable according to NOW. Call it “postpartum depression” or use whatever excuse you want: the fact remains that the feminists do not want to see a woman punished for murdering her children, and are willing to pay money to have her conviction overturned.

Does anyone think a man should be excused for murdering his family because something was bothering him such as, say, his wife whoring around town?

How about it, feminists?

Somehow, I doubt you will feel the same way if she was the other gender.

“Andrea Yates suffered from sever postpartum psychosis and the people who deserve to be punished are her husband, doctor and pastor because they are the ones that allowed her to be that way.”

So let me get this straight, these three men are responsible for this issue and she has no accountability whatsoever?

This is the reason why the West is on the decline, lesson number one, you can’t have it both ways.

Whatever the case with Andrea, would you like to have her in your neighborhood? I doubt that she can be “helped”, just like I doubt that Charles Manson can be “helped”. The old story, someone told me to do it. How can you hold her husband at fault? Exactly what the hell was he supposed to do for her? You can accuse him of being a bad father or husband, etceteras, but people who are adults are responsible for their acts. This was her act. AND as I remember the story, if the story is to believed, since it was HER story, the oldest one ran from her and she gave chase. Are you kidding? She did not know that this was wrong when she had to chase the child down in order to kill him because he was running in terror?

Of anyone in the world, she deserves not to be on the face of this planet. It would only make it a better place.

That is crazy! It is despicable to kill a child. There is no excuse. She was their mother who is supposed to protect her children. I gave birth to two children and suffered depression. It was MY responsibility to seek help and it was HER responsibility to seek help. SHE is the adult and there is options. It makes me sick to my stomach to thing that any woman can defend her.

“There’s no excuse for Domestic Violence”

…except if you’re sad, and a woman.

Hey mandymarie,

By your own line of reasoning I can point out that women don’t know what it’s like to be a man, or know what they feel. So where do they get off criticizing men for hitting women?

If women can’t be trusted to hold to certain fundamental behaviors (not killing someone because you’re severely depressed), then they shouldn’t be considered equal. She knew exactly what she was doing in this case. The only thing that might have saved those kids would have been to forcibly remove custody from her. Like that would ever happen.

When I was young, among tons of other lies, I was told that women value children, (their children especially) above anything else. That they would do anything to defend them and protect them. That mother’s love is above everything else.
Now a female monster kills her 5 kids and she argues that an obscure form of depression was the reason… Then women without thinking at all rally to support this monster and blame her husband, her pastor, her doctor and virtually everything that has a penis except the female child killer…

Personal experiences and those of friends have debunked almost all feminist myths I was told about women, but for years I somehow thought that women change with pregnancy and as soon as they become mothers they are transformed. LIES…Women don’t really care about anything apart from themselves. Children are their tools which serve only one purpose: to get what they want from society and men. When children don’t serve that purpose they are disposable.

I don’t know if women before the feminist era were different. My grandmother certainly wasn’t insane but modern women are EVIL.

If it’s not the psycho murderesses fault for killing all five of her own children but not having the decency to at least kill herself afterwards but instead it’s her husband, doctor and pastors fault (complete joke blaming her pastor btw), then a man who flips and throws a child across a room killing the children is not at fault either (clearly he was stressed aswell, plus it seems alot more like a momentary lapse and alot less pre meditated than drowning, not just one but all five in the bath). By the logic used to defend this Andrea woman a man who does what I have mentioned above should not be held responsible, the person held responsible should be the mother who left him in charge – she should have noticed how stressed the poor man was and how he would not cope with being left in charge of a screaming child. Jesus wept, cannot just signal out post natal depression as the only type of depression that can be usedas an excuse for murder, it is not an excuse for murder, there are always other options in this day and age. Almost all people that kill, for Snyder other reason than self defense, to protect others or to put someone in severe pain out there misery, are mentally ill or suffering from some kind of pychiatric problem – what this woman was suffering from was just another one of these she was a psychopath.
And while we are blaming her pastor and her doctor are we forgetting she was the stupid irresponsible idiot that decided to have 5 children in the first place – any idiot could conclude that might be hard work and a bit stressful, she didn’t have but she willfully chose to do it. Sick that shrede would even try and make excuses for what she’s done and only reinforces my belief that she is simply a psychopath, the same as any other that willfully commits mass murder. Poor children, poor husband, my heart goes out to them x x x

Keep it up feminism and men will eventually embrace Islam just to put a bridle on your evil ways.

If you look at the story of Abraham and Isaac, one thing notably missing is any notion that Isaac’s life was not Abraham’s to sacrifice. That was patriarchy: real, bronze-age patriarchy, and the feminists would like to go back to that with just one small adjustment.

Prison is full of men that suffer or suffered from severe psychosis and didn’t get he help they need before they did the unthinkable. Would they have to be women to get support from the “community? Of course.
