Newborn Baby Snatched From Mother

Mar 17, 2009

I saw this news headline and I had goosebumps while reading this. According to the news report, Janet Banico was on a jeepney and her way to the hospital for her check up when she felt the onset of her labor pains. She then alighted and flagged a taxi but two women, who she thought were just concerned for her, accosted her and told her they will bring her to the hospital. She refused their offer but they went with her anyway. At this point, she said one of the women made her smell something and when she woke up she was in room that did not look like a hospital. When she asked, they said she was at the hospital and that she had given birth to a baby girl. In the news article it said that she asked for her cellphone to call her partner but the nurse insisted she put it in speaker mode. After two days, her partner has not yet visited her and she insisted she wanted to go home but the nurse said she has to pay her bills first. Then the nurse gave her a pill that made her sleep and when she woke up she was lying in front of the Sta Cruz Church, in a bloodied hospital gown and with her newborn baby missing.

The article failed to answer some of my questions like were the police able to verify that she was admitted to the Metropolitan Hospital? If yes, then they can check the records and find out who the nurse is, or who discharged her and find out the record of admission, etc. If not, do they have similar reported cases? I doubt if Janet can remember where she was brought because she was put to sleep. But can she remember the logo and can they verify if that is the logo of the said hospital?

This is really a scary news! What kind of people prey on helpless pregnant women and kidnap their new born babies? I am sure the intention is to sell the baby but this is heartless! The women who accosted her are maybe mothers themselves or if not, they surely have mothers!
How could they do this to a fellow human being?

Oh my God. This is going to give me nightmares.

    Topic ito sa office halos buong araw. As for your question if the admission of the patient was verified sa hospital, if I heard it right, naglabas na ng statement ang Metropolitan saying wala silang record ng admission nung babae. Sa tingin ko, modus-operandi talaga ng mga masasamang loob ang ganun.

    When I read the news this morning, 'yan din ang tanong ko: How could they do this to a fellow human being?
    Pasensya na ngayon lang uli ako nakabalik dito. I've been away from my blog. Kahapon ko lang nakita ang inquiry mo about the Pens of Hope. Yep, nakakuha na ako ng P.O. Box recently lang. Here's the address:

    P.O. Box 16
    Post Office, Bgy. Dalakit,
    Catarman Northern Samar

    Maraming, maraming salamat sa suporta. It means a lot to me and it will mean the world to the children you are helping. Pencils pala ang kailangan ngayon, not pens, kasi pencil pa ang gamit ng mga bata. Kahit one or two pencils lang, malaking tulong na talaga.

    God bless!
