Who's the sicko that's going to end up linking to scarabic's masterpiece in here? Cause I'm not going to do it.

But there are some differences between that answer and the question of Ethically Disposing of Unneeded Infant. The former is about a dead body, probably assuming a juvenile or adult for disposal. With an infant, you probably don't need to go through all those steps for an infant, because there's a lower chance that the baby had any dental records (let alone any teeth), and tiny fingers make it harder to leave fingerprints of any consequence. And the smaller size means more places you can simply hide the corpse, letting nature do it's magic and hoping time will erase the clues for you. Another difference is the word "ethical" - are we talking about not upsetting religious practices or disturbing social norms? The question is a bit vague.

And lastly, you all are sick monsters for assuming that the baby is dead and needs to be "disappeared." Maybe someone wanted a pleasant way to give the infant to a loving, supportive family who could give the child everything it needs for a chance in this cold, cruel world. Is it ethical to "ding-dong-ditch" the baby on a church doorstep, or leave it for rich relatives (who, recently lost their own child, tragically enough) to find? Is adoption that ethical in all situations?

First, be smart from the very beginning. Give all the teeth to the tooth fairy. That will earn you a few extra bucks. Burn any extra baby shower invitations you have left, and disfigure the Fisher Price playset. Clean up any drool, poop and/or vomit lying around. Forcing a DNA test to establish identity (if it ever comes that) might introduce a legal/forensic hurdle that saves your ass down the line. They would have to check their infant offender database for matches. An unidentified body can, in a pinch, be dressed in hand-me downs and dropped in an inflatable backyard pool somewhere where the police will be less likely to question it. I don't recommend that disposal method, I'm just saying an easily identifiable body is an even bigger threat than the opposite.

Let me please point out that I just about posted a link to dead baby joke dot com ... but I didn't.

Does this make me a better a person, or have I just failed that by bothering to even mention this? Would this be a good AskMe?

By the way, I just saw Where The Wild Things Are, and I suddenly can't look at small children (babies on up) without being amazed. So much going on. Great movie.

Did people think "dead" when they read "unneeded infant" before the context of this thread? Because it strikes me that the humour in not "needing" an infant is in the image of trying to get rid of a live baby as though it were an object, and in what possible "need" for an infant could be so temporary as to expire within a few months. I didn't make any connection with death until reading the comments in the thread.

Yeah, that's the what I was thinking, as in:

Slap some stamps on that sucker and pop it in the nearest mailbox
Tie a few balloons on and watch your troubles float away
Pretend you bought it at Nordstroms-- they accept all returns, no questions asked
Hand it out on Halloween to one of those trick-or-treating adults
Find a good sized nest, replace the eggs and any hatchlings, wait to make sure the adult birds are fooled into raising it as one of their own.
