Infanticides of various kinds are still committed in various countries besides the USA. In some cases, the infants are left to die by the doctors after the child is abandoned by parents or other caregivers.
In the USA, statistical records show that dozens, if not hundreds of babies, are born alive after an attempted abortion (they call it a “failed” abortion if the child is not dead!) and yet are left to die without appropriate treatment. What kind of sick perversion is THAT?? In some cases, babies are thrown in the trash or just left to die without lifesaving medical care. Sometimes a passer-by hears the cries of the ones tossed away as garbage, and they’re rescued.
Here in the United States, we have safe-haven laws that are designed to protect many newborn babies from infanticide. The laws allow mothers in crisis to leave their newborns in a safe environment, such as a hospital or fire station, without questions or repercussions, as long as there are no signs of abuse.
However, in other countries, such as the case we are sharing below, corruption and just outright stupidity reigned in what we hope is a relatively isolated occurrence. Two doctors allowed a newborn to freeze to death in a morgue refrigerator — for the most ridiculous reason.
This from LifeNews:
Two doctors in Kazakhstan are facing murder charges after they allegedly allowed a newborn baby to freeze to death in a hospital morgue.
The baby boy was classified as “stillborn,” but hospital staff reportedly saw him move before he was placed in the morgue, the Daily Mail reports.
Authorities said they uncovered the horrific infanticide case while investigating Dr. Kuanysh Nysanbaev for bribery. Nysanbaev is a head physician at a regional perinatal hospital in Atyrau, Kazakhstan, according to the report.
Local Police Chief Shyngys Kabdula said they tapped Nysanbaev’s phone after he was accused of bribing officials to cover up medical mistakes. After listening to the phone records, Kabdula said they came to suspect the doctor of infanticide as well.
“After birth, the baby was negligently registered as stillborn, while in fact he was still alive,” Kabdula said.
The police chief said staff saw the baby’s leg move, and Nysanbaev knew it.
“After the child gave signs of life, the doctors, instead of taking urgent measures, decided to act according to paperwork already issued saying the child was stillborn,” Kabdula said.
He said they put the baby in a morgue refrigerator and left him to die.
“[Nysanbaev] talked about the baby on the phone,” the police chief said. “The baby died in the refrigerator.”
A second, unnamed obstetrician also is facing charges in the case, the report states. If convicted, they could face up to 20 years in prison.
Here’s more from the report:
It is claimed that Nysanbaev and the obstetrician decided that the hospital’s computer database already showed the baby was dead and they did not wish to correct it.
Nysanbaev is separately accused of using bribing officials to cover up medical mistakes and to obtain lavish foreign holidays.
