I felt like a cold big wet fish had just smacked me straight in the face when i first saw this news article, what must have been going through that women’s head when she thought of plunging her baby deep into the sewers of china. I can’t imagine the life that baby will lead in years to come, seeing photo’s or videos of any child’s first appearance to the fresh air of the world is a lovely thought, the family gathering around the small baby celebrating the life, but this baby will have to look back on a photo where it is crying, covered in shit and piss, and being rescued from a sewage pipe. Not a pretty memory to have. The woman and child should receive full health support, but then again, were talking about population control and the Chinese government.
