Woman tried to flush newborn down hospital toilet, left baby in trash, police say | WPXI

Quote:
IOWA CITY, Iowa ó
Chilling reports detail what police say an Iowa woman did after unexpectedly delivering a baby in the bathroom of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Ashley Hautzenrader, 22, faces a charge of child endangerment after giving birth in the bathroom, trying to flush the baby down the toilet ó she thought it was dead ó and tossing it in a trash can, the Press-Citizen reports.

Hautzenrader, police say, didnít know she was pregnant and thought the baby was dead because it wasnít crying. After that, she put the child in a pillowcase and threw it in a trash can.

Itís not immediately clear what condition the baby is in.

Hautzenrader faces a charge of child endangerment, which could land her up to two years in prison. She was released from the Johnson County Jail on Tuesday.
Now I am not an expert on pregnancy but I have heard quite a few of these stories where the woman says she didn't know she was pregnant. How could a woman not know? I thought she wouldn't have a period if she were pregnant?

It's not common, but it is possible to continue to have periods during pregnancy. Additionally, there are plenty of reasons that women don't have regular periods and may not automatically jump to the conclusion that they're pregnant.

you can get a pregnancy test in any beauty/pharmacy store for $3. You can go to Planned Parenthood and get it done for free. How could she not know? They don't have sex education in schools in Iowa? What was she, one of the Amish?

If you don't want to be pregnant, again, get a condom. Don't they give them out for free in schools, Planned Parenthood, etc??? What is wrong with some of these people. She should be charged with attempted murder.

If she didn't suspect she was pregnant, how and why would she consider getting a pregnancy test?

Well what do you expect from a society that programs woman and men to think that a conceived child is just a blob.?

That's not as easy as it used to be. In case you haven't heard, Planned Parenthood is under siege, both physically, from opponents of abortion, and economically, from ignorant members of Congress who don't seem to be aware that the main work the organization does is in health services and contraceptive education and dispensing. Some clinics have been forced to close, so not everyone has access to that free stuff anymore.
