Answer by Maura Rudd:
Because it would be cruel and would likely cause harm to the baby.
As much as I do not enjoy crying babies, that is one of the few things they know how to do. Many years ago I was the crying baby annoying people in public. And they had to put up with me. Now it's my turn to deal with it. And someday in the future that baby will be the adult rolling their eyes when a baby near them is crying.
Kind of the circle of life.
