A new video by a Sydney woman has sparked outrage after it shows her trying to take a baby from her parents’ arms and putting it in the bin.
The video, uploaded to YouTube on Monday by Anna, shows her putting a baby in the back of a van, and then putting it back in her arms and throwing it in a dumpster.
“I have to do this for my baby,” Anna said in the video, which has been viewed more than 7 million times.
“If you have a baby you can’t just leave it there,” she said.
“There’s a lot of stuff that happens and it doesn’t help.”
In the video Anna can be seen putting the baby on a seat in the van while a nurse looks on, and the mother sits on the floor.
“What are you doing?,” Anna asks.
“You’re not helping me,” the woman replies.
“It’s my baby, you’re helping me.”
“Why are you being so selfish?”
Anna asks the nurse.
“Because it’s my little baby and it needs to be taken care of,” the nurse replies.
The woman then takes the baby and takes it back to her parents.
The footage has since been viewed nearly 4 million times, with many saying it was incredibly disrespectful.
“This is how I feel,” Anna told news.com.au.
“How can you do this to me?
You just took my baby and threw it in my arms and I can’t do anything about it?””
I think it’s incredibly disrespectful,” she added.”
As a woman, I think it is very upsetting.””
It should be up to parents to decide whether to put their baby in their arms, and that’s the way they have to be.”
Anna told news in the US that she was taking the baby home to protect it from possible infection, but that the video was upsetting for her.
“They should be responsible for their baby’s wellbeing,” she told news agency ABC News.
“But you just can’t leave it in somebody else’s arms and expect to get a good night’s sleep.”
In my heart I feel sorry for the woman, because I have a young daughter and they have a newborn, and I’m just hoping she gets a good sleep.
