A mother is accused of trying to give away her sick baby outside an Albuquerque pharmacy.

24-year-old Laura Lopez faces child abuse charges.

Lopez appeared in court on Saturday and is being held on a $15,000 bond.

According to police, a substance abuse counselor overheard her trying to give away the infant in front of the Central Avenue pharmacy. 

Police say the infant was covered in a sticky substance due to a severe case of pink eye.

The baby is now in the hospital.
