Miracle Baby Found Alive in a Dumpster With Umbilical Cord Still Attached
Carlos Mitchel was just taking out the trash on Tuesday morning in Houston when he heard a soft mewing coming from the overfilled dumpster he had just tossed his bag into. Thinking it was an animal needing rescue, the construction worker untied the plastic bag the sound was coming from and got the shock of his life.Inside was a newborn baby boy, about seven or eight pounds, with four inches of umbilical cord still attached. The baby was purple and struggling for breath amidst food scraps and homework papers.
Mitchel, a grandfather, wrapped him up and called 911 while he and a coworker warmed the infant up in a vehicle. Emergency workers gave him oxygen when they arrived, and his color and breathing improved. He’s now in good condition at a local hospital.
Teenagers who are not ready to be parents should either steer clear from sex or use protection if they must have sex. This is preferable than converting a dumpster to the baby’s crib, and home after giving it warmth in the womb.
It is heart-wrenching when a new born, whom should have warmth and love as it enters into an unknown world, begins to taste the bitterness of human’s unkindness, and carelessness.
Abolishing abortion in several states in the U.S was supposed to curb the rate of unwanted pregnancies, rather it broadened humans’ creativity negatively. If only we could give these little ones the life and opportunity our parents gave us. If only we would consider our actions as sins against God, and humanity. These little babies, if given the chance to live, could become our pride and joy; the ones who would make us responsible individuals as parents; they could be someone’s savior one way or the other.
Babies are not born to be discarded; they are born to be loved and raised to be mini-us, or even better. It’s time we defend the babies who can neither speak nor shield themselves from harm’s way; even from their parents.
Throwing babies among thrash in bins is an insult to women who crave for babies, but due to circumstances cannot reproduce.
