How is this any different from what they do to aborted babies? The end result is the same: A baby in the trash.
Health authorities in south China said Friday they were investigating a
hospital medical team for mistakenly diagnosing a stillbirth and disposing of a
baby that was alive.
The probe is taking place at the Nanhai Red Cross Hospital in the Guangdong
provincial city of Foshan where the incident occurred on October 26, the Nanhai
district health bureau said in a statement faxed to AFP.
According to the statement, Liu Dongmei — eight months pregnant — had been
rushed to the hospital with internal bleeding and stomach cramps.
She later had an emergency birth, but the baby was neither breathing nor
crying after leaving the womb and its skin had turned purple, it said.
Believing it was dead, the medical team disposed of the child but did not
follow proper hospital procedures, the statement added.
The Foshan News, a local website, reported that when Liu’s sister-in-law asked to see the body around 30 minutes after birth, she was handed a yellow plastic bag containing the infant and found it was still alive.
“I opened the plastic bag and saw the baby’s hands and feet moving, the
stomach was going up and down and air bubbles were coming out of his mouth,” the
paper quoted her as saying.
She was further shocked when she saw the baby was a boy — not a girl as the
family had been told, it said.
According to the Foshan News, nurses had told the family the child was a girl
in an effort to blunt the blow of its death.
