Woman gives birth to baby in office bathroom, hides it in desk drawer where it dies

mugshotKim Pappas, 25, had been at work for two hours at Ceva Logistics in Wyandotte, Michigan, when she started going into labor. She disappeared into the office bathroom where she gave birth. None of her co-workers knew she was pregnant. She returned to her desk and put the baby in a drawer. She was caught when employees went into the bathroom and discovered it covered in blood. 

The Daily Mail reports,

Returning to the office of the freight management company they saw traces of blood on Pappas’ clothing, and found the lifeless infant wrapped up at her feet.

Pappas has been charged with premeditated murder.

According to Fox, workers went to the bathroom after hearing moaning and crying – but Pappas had already left.

They alerted emergency services and went round every employee.

Noticing the blood on Pappas, she was questioned and they searched her desk.

It was not until they discovered the baby in the drawer that she admitted what had happened.

The child was sealed inside a plastic bag, which was wrapped in a tote bag.

He showed no signs of life at the office and was later pronounced dead in hospital.

It is believed he was in the bag for between 15 and 30 minutes, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Initially, Pappas claimed she had a miscarriage but an autopsy suggests the baby died by suffocation.

Pappas appeared via video link in court on Friday to be arraigned. She is facing charges of felony murder, premeditated murder and first-degree child abuse, and has been denied bail, the Free Press reported.

This is horrific that someone would do that to their own child. It is a result of our hookup culture and devaluation of human life. Ever since the Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973 with Roe v. Wade, the value of a baby has gone downhill. What’s the difference between aborting a newborn baby versus killing it by partial-birth abortion? Pappas’s generation has grown up thinking there is little difference. Until this sick attitude toward life changes, horrible incidents like this will increase.
