  • "I'm not sure why people would do that when she could just take it in to the hospital instead of just dropping it off at the front door and expecting somebody else to take it in," Goldfarb said.

    Really? Can't think of a single reason?

    I can think of more than one pretty easily.
  • Nobody puts bleeding baby in a bag...
  • Bet it was some 16 year old's baby whose parents are ultra-conservative
  • You can't promise me that, Subby. It may contain candy. Just not in this case.
  • At least she brought the baby to the hospital and had someone take it inside. I mean, she could've wrapped it up in a blanket or towel, but at least she got it to a place where it could get medical attention.
  • "She was nervous, she was scratching her arms and forearms, I guess she was kind of nervous."

    Meth's a hell of a drug.
  • Slartibeerfest: Nobody puts bleeding baby in a bag...


    Thanks Slartibeerfest for making my chuckle at an otherwise extremely depressing story.
    I'm glad it had a happy ending for the baby.
  • "She was nervous, she was scratching her arms and forearms, I guess she was kind of nervous."

    A junkie, perhaps?

  • Never look a gift horse in the mouth! Ungrateful little twit. A nice lady gives him a brand new baby and what does he do? Whine. The nerve of some people.

    For those lucky among us that have little-to-no exposure to or time spent thinking about the desperate ends of our society, it can be difficult to wrap your head around such inhumanity. I'll tell you: before I traveled the world in the Navy and then married a psychologist that has worked with all sorts of victimized people, I had no idea what "desperation" meant. At least the baby is out of that situation now.

    Still, though, a trash bag? Jesus H Christ, use a beach or bath towel or something, child!
  • Did a helicopter fall on the big cheese shortly thereafter?

    /wrong kind of baggie
  • Think of it this way - that baby is better off without its mother. By passing it off to a total stranger, she did a better thing for it than attempting to care for it herself, because it's clear that she would be completely incapable of caring for it.

    We need to take away the stigma of adoption in this country. In these case, you know your parents cared about you because they DIDN'T subject you to their f*ckuppery.

    I'm going to be on television!
  • PressPlayOnTape: You can't promise me that, Subby. It may contain candy. Just not in this case.

    I was expecting a bag of poop, not a bag of baby.

    Not so cool story. Had a neighbor who ended up in a hospital after she went nuts. It started in the early 90's when news stories about babies abandoned in trash bags was kind of a fad. She really latched onto that idea. When she drove she would avoid hitting bags in the road out of the fear it contained a baby. This mental breakdown soon began to expand to all bags and trashcans. That woman actually though there were dead babies in bags everywhere she went. It went from an amusing WTF to "holy shiat!" real quick. I am still friends with her daughter and this still comes up when we talk. Her mother was always a bit off, but that was by far her worst streak of it. I have no idea what mental illness she has. It was the first time I ever met somebody who was actually mentally ill. To this day when I see a bag drifting on the road I can't help but think of that woman. I can only imagine living in that kind of mental horror show.

    Another woman had a similar issue with stuffed animals. They reminded her too much of a dead puppy she once saw on the road. She couldn't stand to see a stuff animal on the floor. especially if it were a dog or cat stuff animal. farking crazy.

    sounds like psychosis
  • ER is a word in scrabble

    so is QI
  • Sara Goldfarb: I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right. What have I got Harry, hm? Why should I even make the bed, or wash the dishes? I do them, but why should I? I'm alone. Your father's gone, you're gone. I got no one to care for. What have I got, Harry? I'm lonely. I'm old.

    Harry Goldfarb: You got friends, Ma.

    Sara Goldfarb: Ah, it's not the same. They don't need me. I like the way I feel. I like thinking about the red dress and the television and you and your father. Now when I get the sun, I smile.
  • Might as well take it and carry it inside. This isn't a game of hot potato, the baby doesn't become your responsibility because you touched it last.

    I was going to say heroin.

    but but but she was recycling teh plastic bag!
  • So the baby was bloody due to afterbirth and what not right? Not because it had been abused? I think that's important for me at least.

    If the baby was bloodied and beaten it would affect me more emotionally than just a baby with afterbirth and fluids all over it.
  • Annnnd there's another reason not to go to the hospital
  • So the baby is doing ok and he is having nightmares? Pussy.
  • This is a classic example of a full-term abortion.
  • "And when she picked up the bag, you could see the baby's face in the bottom of the bag bleeding," Goldfarb said.

    I want a picture of that to wave around at Abortion protests.
