Shock Video: Chinese newborn rescued from sewage pipe

This morning on radio, Glenn watched a chilling video on TheBlaze.com. The video captures an that infant miraculously survived and was rescued from a sewage pipe after being flushed down the toilet.

Pat describes the scene in the video: "They cut the baby out of the pipes and the baby's alive.  And they carefully slice open the pipe and they cut a section out where they knew the baby was and then they carefully sliced it in half, open it up and there's the baby, crying.  And they finally got it out."

"They saved the baby," Glenn says.

"That's a tough one to watch," Pat adds.

Here's the video Glenn described on radio (WARNING: Video of the rescue below may disturb some):

While shocking, what may be more surprising than the video itself is the location: China. Workers are racing to save the newborn in a country well-known for it's high infant mortality and abortion rate due to their one child per family policy.

The story on TheBlaze notes that the child was in fact flushed down the toilet on purpose, but this victim to China's policies survived.

While in America saving the baby isn't something that would be questioned in the slightest, they same isn't necessarily the case. The newborn was a boy, which Glenn notes may have contributed to the efforts that went into his rescue, but that's just speculation.

The attention being given to the story is growing, which will hopefully raise awareness to the horrifying practices with infanticide in China.

**UPDATE**

TheBlaze is reporting that authorities have found the mother of the Chinese newborn — being called Baby No. 59 — which was rescued from the sewage pipes. The Pujian county police are treating the case as an attempted homicide.

The 6.2-pound baby still had his placenta attached to his body, reports said, suggesting he had just been born. His heart rate was low and there were grazes on his head and limbs, but otherwise he was largely unscathed, according to Zhejiang Online, the province’s official news portal.

The landlord of the building in Pujiang county told Zhejiang News that it was unlikely the birth took place in the public restroom of the building. There was no evidence of blood and the landlord was not aware of any recent pregnancies among her tenants.

Since being brought to the hospital, Baby. No. 59 has seen an outpouring of support from strangers donating diapers, baby clothes and powdered milk. There have even been offers to adopt the child.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
