This story has been in the news lately: Florida Clinic Botched Abortion, Threw Out Live Baby
Lesson: When the culture at large devalues human life, it naturally follows that it will be treated as trash.
Lesson: When a large portion of the nation votes into office a man who voted FOUR times to deny medical care to infants born alive after botched abortions (a scenario that happens around 40% of the time), it naturally follows that such instances will occur with more frequency. (see BAIPA legislation or sidebar)
A portion of the story:
TAMPA, Florida — Eighteen and pregnant, Sycloria Williams went to an abortion clinic outside Miami and paid $1,200 for Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique to terminate her 23-week pregnancy.
Three days later, she sat in a reclining chair, medicated to dilate her cervix and otherwise get her ready for the procedure.
Only Renelique didn’t arrive in time. According to Williams and the Florida Department of Health, she went into labor and delivered a live baby girl.
What Williams and the Health Department say happened next has shocked people on both sides of the abortion debate: One of the clinic’s owners, who has no medical license, cut the infant’s umbilical cord. Williams says the woman placed the baby in a plastic biohazard bag and threw it out.
The story gets worse:
Williams arrived in the morning and was given more medication.
The Department of Health account continues as follows: Just before noon she began to feel ill. The clinic contacted Renelique. Two hours later, he still hadn’t shown up. Williams went into labor and delivered the baby.
“She came face to face with a human being,” Pennekamp said. “And that changed everything.”
The complaint says one of the clinic owners, Belkis Gonzalez came in and cut the umbilical cord with scissors, then placed the baby in a plastic bag, and the bag in a trash can.
Williams’ lawsuit offers a cruder account: She says Gonzalez knocked the baby off the recliner chair where she had given birth, onto the floor. The baby’s umbilical cord was not clamped, allowing her to bleed out. Gonzalez scooped the baby, placenta and afterbirth into a red plastic biohazard bag and threw it out.
Answer me this: When it comes to the value placed upon human life, how is abortionist Dr. Renelique any different than our newly elected president? Would Obama have done anything different in this situation based upon his pro-abortion record, which does not and cannot lie? Obama once stated that he would never want his daughters “punished with a baby.” What an outlook. I guarantee Sycloria Williams’ life will never be the same, and that she would take the “punishment” of seeing her daughter given care than thrown out with the trash. We all need to pray for this girl, who will suffer devastating emotional effects of the treatment both she and her baby were given for the rest of her life. Abortion hurts women. Come on, all you concerned feminists. Where’s your outrage?
Obama also favors passing the Freedom of Choice Act, which, among other despicable things, would allow abortions to be performed at any stage of pregnancy, and would reverse the ban on partial birth abortion.
This story is missing an obvious point, however. Abortion is the taking of a human life. Period. And it all boils down to one thing: location, location, location. An abortionist is within his legal limits to take the life of a baby if it is inside the womb, but is able to be prosecuted for murder if the baby survives the maiming and is born alive (as it should be.) But what confounds me is that there is such a discrepancy in consequence based on nothing other than a few inches. Location. Abortion people, do you feel stupid yet? If not, you’re either a) warped or b) not overly bright. Either way, I’m sorry for you.
Again, Obama voted against the BAIPA legislation not once, not twice, but FOUR times, something that even the most liberal, pro-abortion members of Congress supported. And he remains unapologetic for it. And for this reason, Barack Obama sickens me, and for that, I remain unapologetic.
Abortion is the greatest evil we face. And one either actively fights evil, or does nothing. And to do nothing is to be complicit in the act. We will all be held accountable for our action or inaction one day. I take that wholly to heart. I pray that others start doing the same.
