Newborn Found In Dumpster - Parents Threw Her Away Because She Wasn't Boy

A newborn baby girl was placed in a plastic bag and dumped in a garbage bin in India, left for dead. Miraculously, she was still alive when someone spotted her, though she remains in critical condition. Authorities speculate impoverished parents got rid of the baby because she wasn't a boy.

Dheeraj Rathore, a local merchant who runs a tea shop in the state of Madhya Pradesh, was walking by the dumpster when he heard cries coming from inside the big bin. It was the wee hours of the morning on Saturday.

"I was passing through the bin when I heard the cries of a baby," Rathore explained, according to the Daily Mail. "I was shocked to see an infant's head sticking out of a red polybag in a garbage vat among the bushes. Ants were all over her head and body."

Rathore called for his two friends to help him. They came quickly and helped him clear the ants away from the little girl's body. They then wrapped her in a cloth and rushed her to the closest hospital.

The baby is severely underweight, weighing in at just 3.5 pounds. She also had several bruises on her body, and medical staff suspect she was abused.

The hospital called police, and authorities are now looking for the baby's parents. They believe the parents were hoping for a boy, and when they didn't get one, they felt they didn't want to raise and support a girl child.

In India, families much prefer their sons over their daughters. Boys can do more work, will eventually be able to take over the family business and take care of their parents.

Girls, on the other hand, will need to be married off. That means the poor family will have to come up with a dowry to attract a good husband for their daughter. She will then go away to live with her husband and his family, leaving her parents to fend for themselves.

If they can’t marry her off, and can’t afford to care for her, they may need to sell her into slavery or prostitution.

On the other hand, if a family has a son, his parents can expect to get a dowry some day from his bride’s family (and sometimes, it keeps coming for years). She’ll come to live with his family and she will obediently wait on her in-laws.

The convenience of having boys along with the burden of having girls has resulted in more selective abortions based on gender in India, and more infant girls being killed or abandoned. The preference for boys is causing some serious problems, though, as there is a shortage of brides available.

The growing imbalance is starting to put a strain on the new generation. Indian men are starting to look outside of their homeland for a woman to marry. Many times they’ll turn to human trafficking to provide an acceptable bride, despite the absence of a dowry.
