Hidden in a small room quite literally a cupboard we find Little Miracles. A selection of deceased and deformed babies stored in glass jars. Some may call it a freakshow, I do not see it this way. Each one delicate, beautiful and unique with their own imperfections.
I am not against autopsies and the study of deceased babies or an unborn foetus. Without these sorts of procedures how would medicine advance? It helps to save lives and improve the lives of others. I have no idea how the site came into possession of these little miracles and if consent was given for them to be used for medical research. However once they have served their purpose surely they should still be given a dignified send off as the family sees fitting. Maybe I am wrong I do not have any children so I can't even comprehend the pain the families have gone through by losing a child unborn or not.
However to me, it seems wrong for these to be kept in a small room and forgotten about.
We did not spend long here grabbed a few shots and we was on our way. There had been a lot of foot traffic here before we visited and it was clear jars had been moved around and all the cards relevant to each jar were scattered about. I went to turn a jar round so I could see the face more clearly. I moved it maybe a few mm, the arms bounced like jelly and it sent a shiver up my spine. Needless to say I never touched another jar.
As we were leaving the real horror was seen, I opened a cupboard and see some buckets. I looked in one and see a baby wrapped in a towel the skin looked like raw chicken skin and there was no fluids to help preserve the poor soul. There were more buckets but I did not look in any others. I believe one is actually full! How can this happen? Thrown in a bucket then stored in a cupboard and forgotten about. Out of site out of mind. I obviously did not open up the towel, but I guess they are still borns and have not been used for any examinations. So why are they kept here? Its purely twisted, heartless and barbaric actions.
I would normally say I hope you have enjoyed this set. There is nothing to enjoy here. I was unsure if I would even post these images but they tell a story. A shallow story of what happens behind the scenes in the medical profession.
