Attempted murder

St. Louis is appalled at the reported actions of Elyse Mamino, an Illinois woman accused of giving birth to a baby girl and trying to drown her in a toilet.  (Link to Post-Dispatch story here.)

But shouldn't we be just as appalled that if she had tried to kill her baby just a few hours earlier it would have been her legally sanctioned "choice"?
