Remains of preborn child found inside pipe at apartment complex

For the second time this year, the remains of a preborn child have been found inside the pipes of an apartment complex in Texas. While these could be the remains from a natural miscarriage, it is also possible that they are the remains of a child aborted during a DIY, at-home abortion.

Investigators were called to Glen Cove Apartments in Spring, Texas, on Monday after a plumber found a baby in a pipe at about 10:30 in the morning following complaints about drainage issues. Upon arriving at the apartment complex, the plumber opened a pipe and found what appeared to be the remains of a “fetus… just weeks” old, according to KHOU… yet apparently recognizable as a human being. The police were called and a woman was said to be taken from the apartment complex in an ambulance.

“All I saw when I looked out my window, which is right up there, was all the police cars. Like what the heck is going on,” said resident Linda McQueen. “Never thought anything like this in a million years.”

In a separate incident earlier this year on January 30, police in Mission, Texas, began an investigation after the body of a deceased preborn child was found in the drainage pipe of an apartment complex by a tenant who was trying to unclog a pipe.

It remains unclear what happened to these preborn babies, 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 flush the child’s 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.”

In addition, during 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 down a garbage disposal.

Though most preborn children are now protected from abortion in Texas, there has been a reported increase in women traveling from Texas to pro-abortion states. Pro-abortion groups have also begun mailing the abortion pill to women in Texas, who then deliver their deceased babies at home.

Preliminary abortion data shows there were at least 17 abortions reported in Texas during the first half of 2023. All but one were by way of the abortion pill, and all but one were carried out after the FDA abortion pill use cut-off timeline of 10 weeks. Six of the abortions took place after 17 weeks.
