Newborn Baby Girl in China Thrown in a Trash Bin

On July 23, 2012, a man in Anshan City was searching through a trash bin when he came across a baby discarded in a plastic bag. She was a newborn girl, abandoned by her family and suffering from a 2-inch knife cut across her throat.

 

Horrified bystanders called police, who took the baby to a hospital where doctors performed emergency surgery. One person who witnessed the girl being taken to hospital later told a reporter: “She was still breathing and had a heartbeat. Blood from the wound stained the whole body.”

 

Mercifully and miraculously, the little girl survived. Doctors said that she would have died if the knife wound had been only slightly deeper.

 

Chinese citizens were appalled at the story, and rightfully so. But the tragedy remains. While this girl survived, hundreds of others do not—and this reminds us why we must keep working tirelessly to restore life and value to baby girls like her.
