Infanticide cases have popped up over the years. Most recently with Philadelphia Abortionist Kermit Gosnell but there have been others. Here are some recent cases where abortionists and their staff have killed babies born alive after abortion.
Baby Born-Alive in Abortion, Is Stuffed in Biohazard Bag and Thrown on Roof to Avoid Detection by Police
By Sue Cirba
The shocked mother later reported, her baby “was gasping for air” and made “hissing sounds only.” “I was supposed to be asleep for all of this. I wasn’t supposed to see anything.”
In 2006, eighteen-year-old Sycloria Williams paid $1,200 to abortionist Pierre Jean Jacque Renelique to abort her unborn child of 23 weeks gestation. The Hollywood, Florida resident, who is now 21, has filed a civil lawsuit accusing the clinic staff of delivering her child alive and killing the newborn girl by stuffing her into a biohazard bag. Details of the case
show an appalling lack of information
given to women seeking abortion, and
an appalling disregard for the lives of
both mother and child. Ms. Williams
shared her story with the Florida
Catholic in January because people
“need to know.” Ms. Williams says
she has changed her mind about abortion
since her horrifying experience.
Sycloria Williams did not plan
to have an abortion, but when her
baby’s biological father left after
Sycloria told him she was pregnant,
she chose abortion thinking
her unborn baby was “just a blob..”
On July 17, 2006, Ms. Williams
went to Miramar Woman Center Inc.
where she signed consent forms and
was given a prescription for Cytotec,
a drug to induce the abortion before
even meeting Dr. Renelique, who
would perform the abortion. Williams
was also told she needed to have
the more expensive late term abortion
as a sonogram determined Williams
was 23 weeks into her pregnancy.
Two days later, Williams first
met Dr. Renelique at A Woman’s
Care, Inc. in Miami. Though she
asked questions, the abortionist gave
her a vague account of what would
happen. Dr. Renelique inserted
lamanaria sticks to dilate the cervix.
Williams was given a prescription
and told to come back the next day.
Williams later received a call and
was told to go to their Hialeah clinic,
A GYN where Renelique was supposed
to meet her the next day. She
later received a call telling her to go
to a different clinic. On the way to the
clinic the next morning, her boyfriend
at the time, Shane, “didn’t want to go
through with it.” Williams arrived at
the Hialeah abortion center but they
weren’t open yet. Ms. Williams
knocked on the door and was let in
by the receptionist, Rosemary Chaneton.
The receptionist gave her two
white pills to take but Williams didn’t
know what they were. According to
the lawsuit, the white pills were another
dose of Cytotec, to induce labor.
Ms. Williams went to wait in
the car with her boyfriend, Shane,
but was beginning to feel sick. After
45 minutes, Williams felt the baby
dropping and went into the abortion
clinic. Ms. Williams was taken to
a patient waiting room in the back
and Shane was not allowed to enter.
“I was alone in that room for
about three hours with Rosemary (the
receptionist) and other people checking
up on me every couple minutes,”
Williams stated in her interview
with the Florida Catholic. “I was
nauseated and I had a temperature,”
she said. The doctor had not arrived.
“I was supposed to be asleep for
all of this. I wasn’t supposed to see
anything. Just wake up and it will
all be over,” Williams continued.
Ms. Williams’ lawsuit states
that the receptionist and the staff
began screaming and rushing around
while Williams stood against the
wall, glancing in horror at her newborn
baby. “She wasn’t moving
much. Twitching, gasping for air.
She wasn’t crying though, just hissing.
Hissing sounds only.” Ms.
Williams stated. No one called an
ambulance. Ms. Williams charged,
the clinic owner, Ms. Gonzalez, cut
the umbilical cord, placed the baby
into a red biohazard bag, sealed it
and tossed it into a trash can. Ms.
Gonzalez has no health care license.
When the doctor arrived, he gave Ms.
Williams a shot to put her to sleep.
Ms. Williams did not expect
to see a fully formed baby.. On the
drive home from the clinic Ms.
Williams told her boyfriend she did
not think the baby was dead. He
questioned her further. The next day
Hialeah homicide detectives showed
up at Ms. Williams’ door saying they
were tipped off by an anonymous
caller. Ms. Williams spent four
hours at the police station and filed
more reports the next day. Hialeah
police searched the abortion center
and found medical records but did
not find the baby’s body. Another
anonymous caller told police the
baby’s body was hidden on the roof,
but it would take two more searches
before the remains were found.
The Florida Board of Medicine
on February 6th, permanently
revoked Pierre Jean-Jacques Renelique
license to practice medicine
as a result of this incident. Felony
charges have been brought against
the clinic owner Belkis Gonzalez,
though not homicide charges.
The Thomas More Society,
representing Ms. Williams in her
civil suit, reacted to the charges filed
against Ms. Gonzalez on March 3:
“While we most certainly welcome
the bringing of criminal charges
against Ms. Gonzalez, whose abortion
business represents nothing
less than a serious public health
hazard, we must express our grave
disappointment, indeed our outrage,
that no homicide charges have been
brought on account of the wrongful
death of this little girl,” said Tom
Brejcha, president and chief counsel
of the Thomas More Society.
“Not only the coroner’s report,
but also eyewitness testimony, prove
that this infant was born alive then
brutally killed. That constitutes homicide
under the law of Florida and
treating it as anything less than that
ignores fundamental legal principles
and offends simple human decency.
We demand that Dade County’s law
enforcers add a homicide charge, or
at least an attempted homicide charge,
without any more delay.” he continued.
