Another "mother of the Year" candidate...

Sent to me by my sis, this woman was drunk when she delivered her baby!
A police affidavit says Melissa Tanner had a blood alcohol content of point-two-nine percent when she gave birth June 30th. Police say the baby girl was at point-two-one percent.

Hospital staff had to use an oxygen bag to help the baby start breathing and gave her medication to counteract any narcotics.

Police say Tanner told them she and another person had just polished off a case of beer -- and that she regularly drank during pregnancy.

A sheriff's investigator says the baby has fetal alcohol syndrome.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists the syndrome as the leading preventable cause of mental retardation and physical deformity. The severity of the girl's disability won't be known until she is older.
Maybe its not obvious enough, but I have no pity for anyone as dumbass as this woman!
