An ignominious end, before life has even begun

Care and disposal of the dead is becoming a hot topic at the moment.

In St. Paul, Minnesota, the Regions Hospital has admitted a second stillborn baby was ‘discarded’ in error and turned up in the hospital laundry.

“The hospital released that statement two days after acknowledging that the stillborn boy — who tumbled out of linens being prepared for cleaning Tuesday — came from the Regions Hospital morgue.

“The first baby — a stillborn, premature boy died April 4 at 22 weeks gestation. That body had been wrapped in linens in the morgue. A preliminary investigation found that someone mistakenly thought the bundled body was laundry that needed cleaning.
