The Office of the Philippine President said today President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was "extremely" saddened by the discovery of a fetus in one of the ladies’ rooms of the New Executive Building (NEB) Thursday, Jan. 17, 2008. President Arroyo’s sadness over the aborted fetus just highlights the growing problem that is the killing of the Filipino unborn. This writer said that abortions in the Philippines amount to The Monumental Modern-day Filipino Holocaust

"As a devout Catholic, a mother and a grandmother, she is against abortion and believes strongly in the sanctity of life," Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesman Ignacio R. Bunye said in a statement.

Upon learning of the incident, the President directed the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to step up its community networking and outreach efforts to educate the public to shun abortion as a health and moral hazard.

She also directed the DSWD to intensify and enhance its counseling efforts for unwed and teenage mothers, Secretary Bunye added.

The fetus, about five to six months old, was discovered by a janitor shortly after 8:00 a.m. Thursday dumped in one of the toilet bowls of the ladies’ rest room at the ground floor of the NEB.

The person who threw the plastic bag containing the fetus apparently intended to flush it down the drain, but it got stuck in the toilet bowl.

The Homicide Division of the Manila Police District (MPD) is still conducting follow-up investigation in an effort to establish the identity of the person who left the fetus in the comfort room.
