Teen Gives Birth to 27-29 Week Baby, Tries to Flush Body Down Toilet
Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 05/02/2013 12:01:17 PM PDT by Morgana

On Tuesday night, a central Pennsylvania teenager gave birth in her high school bathroom to a baby who was approximately 27-29 weeks old. She initially tried to flush the baby’s body down the toilet and, when that didn’t work, she placed the baby in the trash can and left.

Police say Cherlie LaFleur, a 19-year-old McCaskey East High School student, is responsible. She has been charged with concealing the death of a child.

From a local news report on what happened:

Officer David Shell after they reviewed school surveillance footage and conducted extensive interviews at the school where the male infant was apparently born prematurely Tuesday night, according to a Lancaster city police press release.

After giving birth in the bathroom, LaFleur allegedly tried to flush the infant down a toilet and, when that failed, she put it in a trash can, police said.

A school custodian found the infant’s body Tuesday night and called police, who were assisted at the scene by school district officials and the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office, the release states.

While an initial autopsy of the infant by the county coroner’s office concluded that the infant was likely 27 to 29 weeks — about seven months — into gestation, city police have not yet released whether the infant was alive when LaFleur attempted to conceal it.

The charge of concealing the death of a child can be made even if the child is born dead, the release states. A final autopsy by the coroner’s office is pending.

LaFleur was unable to post a $1 million bail and has been taken to the Lancaster County Prison while she awaits trial.

Ironically, this situation follows on the heels of a new undercover video showing a staffer at an abortion clinic in Bronx, New York is shown on film telling a customer to flush the body of a baby born alive following a failed abortion down the toilet. Had LaFleur had an abortion and the baby been born alive after a failed abortion, the abortion clinic had a similar recommendation to what she did with her baby’s body.

If the baby was alive when she left it in the trash can, she should be charged with a hell of a lot more than concealing his death.

A woman in town threw her newborn out in the trash. The trash collector found the mangled body.

She claimed that the baby was stillborn and was acquitted.

In Massachusetts, of course.

This is entirely in agreement with the new world order. If you can’t abort your baby cuz you don’t have time or money it’s Ok to use the trash barrel or the toilet.

Remember those a$$hole laws about dropping a baby off at the firehouse with no questions asked? They don’t work, do they?

It’s the value some put on babies. I blame democrats for reducing babies to “things we can flush down the toilet”.

Abortion boosters in 1973 swore horrors like this would never happen if only they could have “legal” abortion, but they were wrong, and the American people are wrong for sanctioning abortion all these years.

Didn’t Barry M. Goldwater, Richard Nixon, John Tower, Prescott Bush, at first GHWB, all sanction abortion too? And Reagan signed an abortion booster’s bill in CA in 1967.

“...city police have not yet released whether the infant was alive when LaFleur attempted to conceal it.”

As cold as this might sound, I pray that the newborn was indeed stillborn. Because the possibility that the child was still alive when this “mother” threw it into the toilet is just too horrible too fathom.

Also “conceal” seems an awfully kind term for what occurred. Even if the child was stillborn, it doesn’t change the fact that he or she was thrown away like so much garbage. No child deserves that...though at the moment I’m thinking the mother just might.

That’s the “Gosnell Technique”

The monster had a plumber on stand-by because of all the baby bones clogging his toilets...

My now-five-year-old was born at 28 weeks, 1 pound 14 ounces. For some reason, flushing him down the toilet never occurred to me.

It did occur to me to try that with my brother.

If it wasn’t for his head...

it doesn't matter how many laws are okaying abortion...the final decision really lies with the mother......

no one is forcing women to abort their babies...they are choosing to do this....

we have to strike at the heart and soul of society.....

One of the witnesses in the Gosnell trial said she saw a “fetus” in the commode “kinda’ like” trying to swim or climb out. That made me fuming mad and I started yelling that I hate everyone who votes for a pro-abortion candidate. (And don’t allow them to say “pro-choice”. The baby doesn’t have a choice.) I had to take a pill to calm down.
