In the United Kingdom an abusive father killed his infant daughter because he believed she was possessed by spirits. A newborn baby boy was found abandoned between two garages in Derbyshire. The infant was alive, but in poor condition after spending the night exposed to freezing temperatures.
One week before this child was found, a set of twins was found in a cardboard box outside Birmingham’s Heartlands Hospital. The baby boy and baby girl were a month premature and dumped hours after birth. These babies were discovered before succumbing to winter temperatures, though they were blue when found.
A baby boy no more than 2 hours old was found in San Diego behind a garbage can. The child was wrapped tightly in garbage bags and covered in soiled paper towels. Fortunately, his cries were heard and he was rescued.

If you know someone who is pregnant and may need help, there are ways that you can help.
