News: Post-natal abortion in toilet fails

No, it's not a story from The Onion, it's a sad but true story from Kansas, via the Kansas City Star. A 2o-year-old McDonald's employee gave birth to a boy in the bathroom and tried three times to flush him down the toilet. The boy was found by paramedics face-down in the toilet water, without a pulse and not breathing. He was revived later and is in critical but stable condition. But this is, in my opinion, the worst part:
Police said the 20-year-old woman told the ambulance crew that she didn’t know she was pregnant or that she had given birth. She told them she had her last menstrual cycle in January or February. But police said they have information that she previously told friends that she was pregnant.
That's disgusting and appalling. Pray for the infant, pray for his mother and father, that they might get some sense knocked into them.
