She claimed that she was failing as a mother and believed she had to kill the children to keep them from going to hell. "These were their innocent years. God would take them up."
Are these beliefs a side affect of mental illness and drug abuse?
Yes. Both mental illness and drug abuse could lead to such warped thinking.
So mentally ill atheist drug users might believe that children who die in their innocent years go to live with God in Heaven for all eternity.

No Christians teach we have the right to take another innocent human beings life.
That's true in regards to the acts of murder.
So clearly she is not living according to Christian principles.
That's not totally true. Her "Christian principles" that the dead children are now in heaven with God for all eternity were quickly confirmed by every Christian with a pulpit.
Here's how the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association put it:
"The Bible teaches that you are an immortal soul. Your soul is eternal and will live forever. In other words, the real you -- the part of you that thinks, feels, dreams, aspires; the ego, the personality-- will never die. The Bible teaches that your soul will live forever in one of two places -- heaven or hell. If you are not a Christian and you have never been born again, then the Bible teaches that your soul goes immediately to a place Jesus called hades, where you will await the judgment of God. The moment a Christian dies, he goes immediately into the presence of Christ. There his soul awaits the resurrection, when the soul and body will be rejoined.
The scriptural doctrine of hell is an awesome one which must be taken very seriously. At the same time, the good news of the gospel is that Jesus Christ, through His triumph over death, has conquered hell. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
When I asked them where the five murdered children are, they responded that they did not know where the children's remains were, then continued to state:
"What is more important, however, is where the souls of these children are. God, in His mercy and love, watches over little children who are taken by death, and they go to be with Him in heaven."
Every Christian I asked stated that the children were in a better place. That is, she succeeded!
The woman could have equally claimed she did what she did because of space aliens. Would that mean space aliens were to blame?
But she did not claim that. She stated that she killed them in their innocent years to send them to Heaven eternally and avoid even the possibility of their spending eternity in hellfire.
Thousands of revered pastors then quickly announced that she had succeeded!
