I wish I hadn't seen the picture...

... Honestly I really do wish that I hadn't! Yesterday in the late evening, my aunt came for a visit. During the conversation she brought up a very sad and horrific news. She lives in an area which has started to develop only a couple of years prior. So there aren't many houses or stores there. There are still plenty of plots of land yet to be used. One such empty plot is right across my aunt's house. So she was telling us how someone has thrown a fetus, a human fetus in that plot at nighttime when everyone was sleeping. And she had found it and called the cops. She had the picture! Gosh! Just wrapped up in a newspaper, a fully formed unborn baby which I suspect was aborted. (I still get the heebie-jeebies) When we give respect to deceased then didn't that baby deserve the respect too? Why throw away like yesterday's trash? (Photo by Pixabay)

This is terrible. Many years ago a new born baby with cord and all was found in a dustbin near our house, it caused a sensation. Thankfully the baby was alive and later on a couple adopted him.

@responsiveme That's nice to know that the baby survived and found a good home. Unfortunately this one didn't.

Seen such imagery plenty of times. I have no clue why anyone would post such stuff on social media too.

@skysnap Oh to have their two minutes of fame perhaps? They are fighting to be more interesting than the other on social media. to outdo each other. Not caring about the topics or things they use!

@JaboUK Evidence! People who did that wouldn't be hesitant in sequestering away the baby as soon as my aunt's back was turned and especially if they heard about cops arriving.

All that, and the so many just born babies that are left in the streets to die, make me think that there are lots of things that should be done so that does not happen. Teaching birth control is one of those things and giving out morning after pills for girls that have been raped (so many and so young!) can be another.

@Daljinder I can very well understand, not even an animal deserves to be thrown in the garbage.

@Daljinder That's friggen awful! I know this is a bit different but recently ( I forget where this happened ) but some 16 year old girl had a baby and she didn't want him / her so she threw the baby out of the window! I don't know if the baby survived. Kind of doubting it. Sorry you saw an awful photo!

@crazyhorzeladycx I was wondering about that too. How cold their heart might be to throw a baby like that? (shudder) It was really disturbing picture. I can only imagine what my aunt saw in person.

Sweetheart...think ...they have not yet come up with abort your baby here ..if you will...so that fully formed organs can be harvested for somebody else, and you too can be relieved of responsibilities...in addition we pay you upfront for this. That is the direction we are going in anyway..shame..

This happens everywhere and its too bad because this involves an innocent child who is not given a chance to live.
