MONTREAL, June 21, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Police in Montreal are looking for the mother of a small baby whose body was discovered in a solid-waste tank in a waste treatment plant just north of the city. They say the baby was likely flushed down the toilet.
The shocking discovery comes just weeks 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.
Employees "were shocked, they were surprised, they were floored by this, obviously,” said Montreal Sgt. Gino Pare about the latest case. “They stopped their work right away and called the police."
Police say they want the woman to seek treatment, but added that charges may be possible, depending on the results of an autopsy, reports Sun News.
"We have to see among other things, if [the child] was viable or not," said Sgt. Gino Pare. "For now, what's important for now is mainly to find the mother to give her help. She's really someone who needs help."
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.
