Body of deceased unborn child found in apartment building plumbing

Police in Texas are investigating after a tenant found the body of a deceased unborn child in the drainage pipe of an apartment complex.

According to Valley Central, the tenant was working to unclog a pipe when he found the remains in Mission, Texas. Autopsy reports are now pending.

“The tenant reported having issues with backflow of the water and he later found the fetus next to the drainage pipe,” a statement from the Mission Police Department said.

It’s not clear what happened to this preborn child, but at times, abortion facility staff have instructed women to “flush” the remains of their babies when they are expelled during the abortion process.


In Live Action’s Inhuman investigation, undercover investigators repeatedly were told by abortion facility staffers that, if they went into labor early after starting the process of a later abortion, to sit on the toilet and simply flush the body. At multiple locations, staffers told the investigators to deliver the baby into the toilet and not to call 911.

“If you’re feeling pressure — it’s moving down or something coming out — um, the pregnancy coming out — um, then you’ll just want to unlock the door to the hotel room, get your cell phone, and just sit on the toilet,” a staffer at Southwestern Women’s Options in New Mexico said. “You don’t have to look at anything, you don’t have to clean anything up or nothing.”

Additionally, abortionists have at times advised women not to go to the emergency room if they experience abortion complications after a surgical abortion, and instead, instruct them to call the abortion facility. “We will see you here in our office if necessary — do not go to the emergency room,” instructions from Southwestern Women’s Options said. “Call our phone number below with any concerns and we will take care of you, no matter the time of day or night.”

It’s also common for abortion facilities to send babies’ bodies down the drain — literally. In a meeting for the National Abortion Federation, one abortion industry executive explained that the bodies of preborn children were put into the Detroit sewer system, while other facilities likewise admitted to flushing the bodies down a toilet or through a garbage disposal.

Other methods of disposal included putting the babies’ bodies in freezers, burning them in bonfires, or tossing them in landfills. Some bodies were even used to create electricity.

It’s not clear if this baby was a victim of abortion. But the method of disposal is something seen every day at abortion facilities across the country.
