June 21, 2013 ( – The body of a newborn baby was discovered in a trash can in Oildale, California today, reports the local ABC affilate. 

According to the report, a man who was taking in his trash can this morning discovered the baby, whose gender has not been released. According to police, the baby was just days old.

News of the grisly discovery comes on the same day that police in Montreal announced that the body of a small baby had been discovered in a solid waste tank in a sewage treatment plant just north of the city. They said the baby had likely been flushed down a toilet.


It also comes just weeks after after the world was transfixed by video footage of Chinese workers laboring to remove a baby from a sewage pipe after her single mother flushed her down a toilet, something police said was an “accident”. The baby girl has been released from the hospital in her grandparents' care.  

There been a rash of other similar cases in recent weeks.

Earlier this month, 27-year-old Shavaughn Robison was charged after police say she gave birth to a baby in a toilet, then put the newborn in a trash bag and threw her in a dumpster.   

In May, 19-year-old Cherlie Lafleur gave birth to a baby in the ladies' restroom at McCaskey East High School in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and then allegedly abandoned the child in the trash can. The baby was between 27 and 29 weeks gestation.  

Some abortion providers actually advise young women to flush their babies down the toilet. In April, an undercover investigator with Live Action filmed a counselor at Dr. Emily’s Women’s Health Center in the Bronx telling her, “If it comes out, then it comes out. Flush it if anything, you know, put it in a bag or something or somewhere and bring it to us.” 

Such births also take place inside abortion facilities.  

Kareema Cross testified that a baby born in a toilet tried to swim out at Dr. Kermit Gosnell's Women's Medical Society in West Philadelphia. Gosnell was convicted in the murder of “Baby D,” as well as two others. 

In 2011, abortionist James Pendergraft admitted he sometimes allowed babies to be born alive and then die while “wiggling around in the toilet.”
