Infant Abandonment on a Potty

A woman gave birth inside a port-a-potty, leaves her baby inside the toilet, comes out to ask for a cigarette and mentions casually that people shouldn't go inside since she's just given birth there. A 911 call was made and the baby was rescued (the baby was also probably saved by all the trash in the potty which prevented it from drowning).

Now... I am trying to come around to the idea of restorative justice but I think parents like this should at least be made infertile as one of the natural consequences they'd have to face for committing such a crime. Rehabilitate such people all you want but never give them again their right to a child. Let them volunteer instead or babysit, but never give them the privilege again of being responsible for a life!
