JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Police are searching garbage dumps in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for the body of a baby that was apparently thrown out with the trash at a Jersey City hospital.
Christ Hospital spokeswoman Barbara Davy says the baby was stillborn on Dec. 21 and the body was placed in the hospital morgue. But the body was gone when a funeral home employee came to pick it up on Jan. 2.
Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio says it has become evident that the baby's body was discarded in the trash, but authorities have yet to explain how that happened.
The baby's mother, Kalynn Moore, claims her son was born alive, but died about 20 minutes later despite doctor's efforts to save him.
Whether the child was born alive is legally important because a stillborn is not considered a person under New Jersey law.
But who the hell would dump the body of an infant? I can see an abortion in most cases because it's not wanted or whatever..... but many tend to burry their children who die in the birthing process..... so you'd think they'd keep the body for them until they decided.
