Police authority found a newborn baby in a garbage bag in Manila International Airport.The garbage bag was unloaded from an international flight from the middle east.I am just thinking what kind of mother she is,why she throw her baby.If ever she is afraid because maybe there is something happened to her while she is working in the middle east thats why she became pregnant,but for God's sake,baby has life and it needs to be cared.I do hope that one day she will realized what she done to her baby. What's your opinion about this,it is fair to just throw you baby,because he/she is unwanted? Happy mylotting...!!!

That was a sad news. I cannot also think of any valid reason why many women are throwing their newly born baby so easily like the news you shared. I heard and seen many stories like this and am very much disappointed why these people had no conscience. If it is about poverty or disgrace why they decide to throw those baby away, then there are other ways to give them away. There are organizations, where they can get in touch with when they cannot manage to give these babies a good future. No matter the reason they have, it is still not proper to throw this baby away through a garbage bag.

Yes very sad news,I saw the baby on TV and the baby is very healthy.Maybe the mother is just bothered what to do that's why she do that,but still its not right.She should never do that act,throwing her new born baby on a garbage bag.

I saw the same in the news and yes, the baby was healthy and good Lord saved him. When I saw the baby, I was touched and desires to adopt him. Well, we never knew what went wrong with the mother. She was probably not in a sane condition or perhaps a victim of maltreatment in the middle east.

this is really so sad. having a daughter i can't imagine how someone can just leave their baby. the least the mom could have done was to give up the baby for adoption instead of just abandoning the baby in the plane. but i guess it's really hard to criticize the mom for what she did. maybe she was so messed up or has deep personal problems which made her do that. one thing for sure. a time will come when she'll get to think of what she did and come to really really regret it.

Yes,we cannot blamed her,but still she had to face some consequences if she is being trace by the authority.You are right also if you cannot give the responsibility it is okay to go for adoption,but I know that time will come those mothers who are like this will regret it.

this is a reality never known much but there are abandonment happening in government hospitals. The babies are being taken cared of by the nurses and doctors out of their good hearts. I witnessed another case in Novaliches Distric Hospital where I now work.It also happened in other hospitals where I worked. Sometimes, the kids are adopted by the midwives or nurses

Maybe much better to leave the child that way rather than throwing it in a garbage bag..at least when a mother left her baby in a hospital we can assure that it will be taken care by the hospital employees.

I heard this from the news.., It didn't happen once.., It happens once in awhile.., baby being left somewhere by irresponsible parents.., and heartless ones.., I wonder how can a mother do that to their own child..? It's so unimaginable and I pity them..=(

Well maybe there are just people who haven't conscience anymore or maybe they are out of their mind already that's why they can do thing.I do hope that they will be responsible enough to things they have done and committed.

It is really sad to read this stories. I have just seen the new a few hours ago prior to reading this post. If she does not want the baby, she could have just turn it over to social welfare. Lucky thing that the baby is in good condition. The authorities are now trying to locate the mother of the child so that proper charges can be filed against her.

Yes,police now are locating the mother.She will be charged and maybe will also be put to jail for throwing her baby in the garbage bag.Baby is been taken cared by the DSWD.

I hate that fact. The challenge was given to her for she knows how to solve it. She must have a counseling if ever she was pregnant. If she does not want the baby then why not give it to the orphanage? I guess there must be an investigation regarding this matter.

The police are now tracing the mothers baby.They are tracing the airline manifest so that they can locate the mother.As far as I know you cannot travel if you are pregnant if you can't present any document that you are safe to travel.

i think this is not a new case where in they found a baby elsewhere, i think these things happen because of the parents scared to faced their obligations or they are not ready because of some some factors like for example they don't have the money to raise up a child. i strongly believe that this is no a valid reason to do this. Don't be making decisions you cannot handle.

Yes,you are right.Some factors to be considered but I hope that they know that there are certain agencies that help all those who has this problem and throwing your child is not the answer to all this problem.

How sad,some people of today just threats this little angel as dogs or cats. However, it is good that the mother didn't aborted the child

Yes, thats true,but sad is why did she throw her baby in a garbage bag,why not go to some authority in the government that can help about this problem.There is the DSWD who help about these cases.

It is awful, you hear of this more and more everyday. When there are hundreds of couples who want to have children of their own and cannot. With all the options that a young mother has today, why choose such a cruel way to deal with your problem?! A life is a precious gift not to be discarded as if it were a piece of paper! More severe punishments, I say, for those who would discard a human life as if it were no more than waste!
