PLEASANT GROVE, Utah – A Utah mother who admitted she killed her babies and then kept their bodies in her Pleasant Grove garage for years may spend the rest of her life behind bars.

The judge decided Megan Huntsman will spend up to life in prison Monday.

She faced 5-years-to-life in prison for each of the six babies she admitted she killed.

Monday the judge said three of Huntsman’s sentences would run concurrently and three would run consecutively.

That means she will most likely spend 20-years-to-life in prison.

Huntsman pleaded guilty to murdering six of her newborns and claims the seventh baby was stillborn.

Her estranged husband found the bodies last April while cleaning out the garage at the home they once shared.

        On April 18, 2007 the gruesome method of partial birth abortion was banned. Prior to that date Bob was absolutey correct.

      Unfortunately Clinton and her partial-birth abortions are going to be more prevelent than ever if she takes office. Heaven help us to bow if she does. I heard it said well a couple days ago when someone said, “Osama Obama has put America in the toilet, Clinton is going to flush it”.

        “I have said many times that I can support a ban on late-term abortions, including partial-birth abortions, so long as the health and life of the mother is protected,” Clinton said in a 2000 New York senatorial debate.

        I can NEVER support or think that its OK to tear these little babies into pieces ..Bob.. its just not right… nor can I think that they are not alive or human… and the word fetuscide just makes me cringe… those babies didn’t have a chance in life… she had a chanceto live her life… why couldn’t they …. if she didn’t want them she could have also taken them to the local hospital in the first 3 days and just dropped them off , no questions asked … there are plenty of people that want to adopt they didn’t have to die, or torn apart disrespectfully., there are other options for sure… they are not parasites , they are innocent beyond measure…just cause something is legal does not make it right…I don’t care what ” kankle lady clinton wants or says ” we are certainly Right to life people at Pollys Birth Book and we will stand up for the litte innocent ones….

    Did doctors find her mentally unstable? Seems like you would need to be to do this, but I didn’t follow the case much.

      I actually was wondering the same thing. I am actually surprised that she wasn’t sentenced to some type of mental health treatment until she was well enough to spend the rest of her term in prison.

    I don’t understand how responsible women can get pregnant and then choose to kill a baby, much less have the baby and kill it — SIX TIMES? She’s got the ol’ magnifying glass on the ants syndrome. People like this, who openly admit it no less, don’t deserve a trial with tax dollars or a sentence.

    We need a huge magnifying glass in the desert for this one. Front row seats ought to help balance out our national debt.
