a 7 month old pre mature baby was found on the side of the road soaking wet on the rain. the one who found it says that the baby was crying, and kicking on the floor while gasping for air and begging for mercy. they rushed the baby to the hospital but unfortunately the baby died because he drank to much water from the rain. police say that the baby was newly born and the navel was still uncut.

That is SO awful! This story just makes me sick! That poor baby! How in the world could anyone leave a baby like that, in such terrible conditions. Don't people know hospitals have a specific area where you can drop off new borns!!! That poor baby :( I hope they find the people responsible.

That is so sad. Why couldn't they take the baby to the hospital so it could have a fighting chance? That is too sad for me. That poor thing was trying to live even though the odds were against him. Mercy. that just hurts me.

oh...... That is Horrible...... How do people live with themselves after doing such things like that...... It is so sad that they didn't find the decentsy to at least leave it on the doorstep of the hospital, so that it would have had some chance to live.... Why go through a pregnancy and bring this poor helpless child into the world and lleave it on the side of the road to die...... Sorry for that rav on, I hope I didn't get to carried away it is just so sad and upsetting to hear things like that.......

That is so sad. If it wasn't for the couple good people you meet in life every few days, I would have lost all hope for humanity. This is truly sickening. so the baby was only 2 months developed? :( poor thing it's got a taste of this hell whole and I hope it's enjoying itself now.

We now hear so many stories of babies being born in restaurant or store bathrooms or in alleys. Bodies are found in dumpsters and garbage cans. There is simply not enough awareness of the existence of resources for women who are in crisis pregnancies. They may be pregnant because of rape or irresponsibility, but in any case a surprise pregnancy is a scary thing. There are so many people looking to adopt these babies and care for them and love them. If you know a girl or woman in a crisis situation, share the following link or the resources on the link with them. Resources such as the ones on this link page should be posted in community centers, churches, schools and health clinics. Guidance counselors and pastoral counselors need to be aware of these things. People need share this link and these resources and others like them so they will become more known. http://www.kreatedbykewpie.ws/bookshelf/oklahomawind/resources.html

That is so sad. Where was this at? Who ever don't want babies or kids should give them up for adoption, there are millions who would love to have one but cannot. And if people really know that a kid is out of the qeustion for them then they need to use protection or just don't do it. People that do horrible things to kids and babies ,I just can't understand them.I have three and I love thme more than I do myself. With out them I am nothing but a woman.With them I am everything and more.
