Unbaby, or shredder, is the term used in the Republic of Gilead to describe infants that are suffering from birth defects or physical deformations. These die shortly after birth due to their defects. They are usually taken away to be disposed of. It's unknown what is done with Unbabies, though given that they are sometimes referred to as 'shredders', it is hinted that this could be the way they are disposed.
