Certainly not ideal, but if you need to off an innocent human, then you lose your right (through you obvious lack of compassion making you unfit to be a parent??) to have more children. I'd make sure that the father is located as well, he needs to know he'll be firing blanks in the future as well if he can't shoulder the responsibility of keeping it in his pants, or dealing with the consequences of his failure to do so.
