National attention turned to San Marcos this morning after Tuesday, Central Texas Medical Center was the location of the birth of a baby boy. This baby boy belonged to one of the members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints’ Yearning For Zion Ranch in Eldorado, Texas. The polygamist sect has been the subject of much international attention since the April 3rd raid on the ranch in which over 450 children were taken into protective custody by Texas Child Protective Services.
The children have been relocated to dozens of cities around the state in an effort to handle the sheer volume of cases.
The mother’s age has been a matter of some debate as reports have stated both that she is under eighteen and exactly eighteen. According to a hospital spokesman, both the child and mother are doing well.Email | Print
