The state-run, Hangzhou-based newspaper Dushikuaibao said police became suspicious when they found baby toys and blood-stained toilet paper in the 22-year-old woman's rented room, in the building where Saturday's rescue occurred in eastern China.
The woman, whose name was not revealed in state media reports, confessed to police when they asked her to undergo a medical checkup.
The woman told police she could not afford an abortion and secretly delivered the child Saturday afternoon in the toilet. She said she tried to catch the baby but he slipped into the sewer line and that she alerted her landlord of the trapped baby after she could not pull the child out, the state-run, Jinhua-based Zhezhong News said.
Some of Kermit Gosnell's former employees, including his wife, will be sentenced this week.
Also scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday is Gosnell's wife, Pearl, 51, who has spent two years on house arrest and could be sent to prison for racketeering and performing an illegal abortion. She feels she's left "holding the bag" after her husband shamed the family, turned down a plea deal that would have kept her out of prison, and refused to speak at his trial, her lawyer said Tuesday.
Kermit Gosnell will plead guilty to the federal drug charges he originally pleaded not guilty to.
Gosnell, 72 - who was sentenced this month to three life terms for murdering three born-alive babies during illegal late-term abortions - was due to stand trial in federal court for the narcotics-related charges after pleading not guilty last year.
A change-of-plea notice was filed with the U.S. Attorney's Office yesterday. Gosnell is scheduled to formally enter the new plea June 6 in front of U.S. District Court Judge Cynthia M. Rufe.
Speaking of abortionists who illegally prescribe drugs, a late-term abortionist in Australia named Mark Schulberg has been struck off the medical register for a year after prescribing copious amounts of pain killers.
Between 2000 and 2009, the Croydon-based doctor prescribed multiple patients with more than 25,000 Xanax tablets and 9000 Valium among other addictive drugs.
In her judgment, senior member Noreen Megay said his conduct represented the ''most serious and grave lapse'' of professional standards. ''His conduct was consistent with poor practice, it endangered the patients, it continued over a number of years and we viewed the pattern of prescribing as reckless,'' she wrote.
