Dead Infant Found Outside Planned Parenthood Office in North Carolina

A infant girl was found dead outside a Planned Parenthood in Winston-Salem. The child was alive when born and it will take a couple of weeks for the results of an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
Jason said the baby was a few weeks premature, but it is still unclear when the baby was born. He said further testing, including an examination of the infant's brain, will need to be done.

Employees at Planned Parenthood saw a blue plastic storage bin outside the office at 3000 Maplewood Ave. about 7 a.m. Saturday and immediately called police....

Jason said the baby was found wrapped in a blanket. The infant had on a diaper and a one-piece garment, he said. The blanket did not obstruct the baby's airways, Jason said.

The Planned Parenthood office in Winston-Salem closed Saturday but was back to regular hours yesterday. The director of the local office referred all questions to Reed.

Reed said this is the first time that a dead infant has been placed outside of a Planned Parenthood office in North Carolina. She said counseling was being made available to employees who came to work Saturday.
