    Yes, Austria is a beautiful country, and the Austrians that I have met have all been very nice people.

    Unfortunately there are sick people everywhere and they come in all sizes, shapes, colors, religions etc.

    May their souls rest in peace.

    A very sad case. I wonder what the autopsy of the four infants will show. My prayers go out to the infants, may they rest in peace, and be with the Lord in Heaven. The mother needs help. :(

    Right, the "partner" didn't realize his gf had been pregnant 4 times. What a crock. It never ceases to amaze me the number of really sick people there are in this world. If you are of the mind that you'll kill the child because you can afford to raise it, maybe birth control would be a reasonable option? I'm completely disgusted.

    Most parents want to protect their babies at any cost - including giving their own lives for there kids. What makes people hurt children? I will never, never understand.

    It could be she told him they were given up for adoption, that they were still born, that they died right after child birth, that she had a late abortion or since there were four one of each.

    I to find it difficult to believe that he didn't realize she was pregnant. Pregnant women smell different. Its a pheromone thing.

    There are case where a woman doesn't realize she is pregnant. The woman is usually of large size already, so the change isn't that noticeable. So for this woman, would have to know what her body size is like.

    A lot will be know after an autopsy. For the babies sake it would be better if they were stillborn.

    off-topic: could this smell be defined? do women "stink" then? ok, stink may be the wrong word.

    I can guarantee you that pregnant women difinitely smell different in the other sense of the word... When I was expecting my son, people STANK. :D

    As for the parents of these children, they both need help. And perhaps sterilization or some other mean of reliable birth control.

    Adolf Hitler was an Austrian. But then George W Bush is an American. So no countries people are perfect. So I think making a connection between peoples nationalities and their actions is entirely futile.

    Sometimes I get the impression that there is an unusually high concentration of bible-bashers (read "devout religious") on this forum. Is this due to bible-belt americans or some other phenomenon? :confused:

    the phrase is bible thumpers. Totally different idiom.

    And I was actually thinking the converse. :)

    These stories break my heart. And its even worse now that I've got a couple of children of my own. So, so sad.

    Churchill was right. Two people divided by a common language.

    And doesn't it make more sense? Alliteration, and all. I'm glad some people are posting about something other than intel processors. i'm bored of them already.

    Yeah, but the bf suffered it too? :p

    This is 4 babies we're talking about. Are people 100% sure that they were her babies and not just ones they kidnapped?

    Did she have quadruplets? Did she have 4 babies over four 9-month sessions and yet the bf didn't know?

    Maybe she had one of those shapely american-esque bodies and the increase in size from the quadruplets was proportionally negligable.

    Not all americans of course - but you know the ones I'm talking about... ;)
