Another ghastly story is coming out of China, where women and children continued to be victimized daily by the one-child policy that nation employs which encourages abortions and infanticides.

In this new story, an abandoned newborn baby girl is struggling for her life after a local man found her in a trash bin after having her throat cut. The bay girl, who still had her placenta and umbilical cord attached, is now receiving hospital treatment, according to a report in the London Daily Mail newspaper.

The baby remains in the hospital in critical condition.

A resident who witnessed the girl being taken to hospital said: ‘She was still breathing and had a heartbeat. Blood from the wound stained the whole body.’

Doctors worked to close a two-inch wound across her neck, so deep that it went down to her windpipe. A doctor at the hospital said that had the cut been any deeper at all ‘she would have died instantly’.

This story comes on the heels of an uplifting report in the same newspaper about a Chinese woman who has become a local hero thanks in part to her work finding and raising babies she has found abandoned on the streets of Jinhua, where she lives. Lou Xiaoying is an 88-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure who has found the abandoned infants and children — some of them who were left in the trash.



She has her husband, who passed away 17 years ago, kept four of the children to raise and placed the others with loving families.
