Taking photos of your dead children is not new. What is new is the ease in which we take photos and the number we can take these days.
It was done as far back as the early 1800s:
Most people no longer take photos of older children - but they used to, because it might be the only photo they ever got in the days of the daguerreotype. People didn’t have landslides of photos as we do. It was expensive and took a long time.
Now, there are sometimes services provided by the hospital that will come to the bed of a woman with a stillborn and take a gentle photo as remembrance. I could see wanting that done, we all take photos of our babies and want to remember what they looked like. They also get a box with the picture, the hospital clothes and the blanket, all so the parents can mourn privately. It’s not meant to be a public spectacle posted regularly.
Putting it online is the weird part. Now they are “angel babies” and have poems and music and stuff and pictures are posted on birthdays and Mother’s Day, etc.
I guess whatever gets you through but posting pictures of your dead baby on Facebook on Mother's Day is no different than Jahi McMath’s mom doing it. Dead is lead, lezbereal. It isn’t polite to show your dead relatives.
And it shouldn’t be polite to dress up your potato relatives and show them either.
