Teen Threw Stillborn In Incinerator

Ladies please utilize the "Safe Haven For Infants" law if absolutely necessary instead of causing harm to innocent babies.

Unfortunately this was not an option for one Bronx, New York teen as her baby was stillborn however what she did with the baby's body has resulted in her arrest!

19-year-old Ariel Devonish-Francis has been charged with the unlawful disposal of a cadaver for allegedly throwing her newborn baby down the incinerator of the building she resides in at the West Farms Road Rehabs projects.

While her brother who was home at the time claims not to have known his sister was knocked up and took her constant bathroom runs as a possible sick stomach, Ariel was fully aware that she had given birth and made her way to the hospital to check up on her lower region after giving birth!

There, she reportedly told hospital staff that she dumped the baby down her building’s garbage chute.

An autopsy has confirmed that the baby was stillborn.

Authorities have charged 19-year-old Ariel Devonish-Francis of the Bronx with unlawful disposal of a cadaver for allegedly throwing her newborn down a garbage chute, according to the N.Y. Daily News.

On Saturday, Devonish-Francis reportedly gave birth to a baby boy in her bathroom at the West Farms Road Rehabs projects.

Her brother was reportedly home at the time but wasn’t aware that she was pregnant.

“She kept constantly going back and forth to the bathroom — I thought it was maybe something she ate,” Clifton Jones told the Daily News.

“If I would have known, things would have been different.”

After reportedly delivering her stillborn, Francis visited the Albert Einstein University Hospital for medical treatment.

There, she reportedly told hospital staff that she dumped the baby down her building’s garbage chute.

Acting off of her information, officers located the fetus in the building’s basement shortly before 6 p.m. Devonish-Francis was arrested shortly thereafter.

And on Sunday, the medical examiner’s officer ruled the fetus a stillborn once they conducted an autopsy.

Neighbors organized a candlelight vigil outside the building Sunday, complete with teddy bear, a candle and flowers.

Safe-haven laws (also known in some states as "Baby Moses laws") are statutes in the United States that decriminalize the leaving of unharmed infants with statutorily designated private persons so that the child becomes a ward of the state. "Safe-haven" laws typically let parents remain nameless to the court, often using a numbered bracelet system as the only means of linking the baby to the mother. Some states treat safe-haven surrenders as child dependency or abandonment, with a complaint being filed for such in juvenile court. The parent either defaults or answers the complaint. Others treat safe-haven surrenders as adoption surrenders, hence a waiver of parental rights (see parental responsibility). Police stations, hospitals, rescue squads, and fire houses are all typical locations to which the safe-haven law applies.Texas was the first state to enact a “Baby Moses Law” in 1999.
