Infanticide Happens!!

I posted about this case earlier this week. However last night, I was able find out some more details about the case. I read from Jill Stanek site, the AP report, and on LifeSiteNews

The Department of Health recommended that Renelique's (the abortionist) license be suspended. But the board decided to revoke it instead which means he will not be able to practice medicine in Florida.

No criminal charges have been filed in the case, but the state attorney's office is investigating.

Why isn't Gonzalez (the clinic owner) being charged with murder???? WHY??????

Why isn't Renelique being charged with an accessory to murder????? WHY????

This baby girl was born alive and Belkis Gonzalez (one of the clinic owners) "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." and Renelique "delegated responsibility to unlicensed personnel, and failed to keep an accurate medical records, and hid the evidence from authorities."

Infanticide is murder and it is against the law now!! (no thanks to Obama who voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act).

excerpts from from Jill Stanek site:

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 FL 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.

Police recovered the decomposing remains in a cardboard box a week later after getting anonymous tips. ...

"The baby was just treated as a piece of garbage," said Tom Brejcha, president of The Thomas More Society, a law firm that is also representing Williams. "People all over the country are just aghast." ...

Williams struggled with the decision to have an abortion, Pennekamp said. She declined an interview request made through him.

She concluded she didn't have the resources or maturity to raise a child, he said, and went to the Miramar Women's Center on July 17, 2006. Sonograms indicated she was 23 weeks pregnant, according to the Department of Health. She met Renelique at a second clinic two days later.

Renelique gave Williams laminaria, a drug that dilates the cervix, and prescribed three other medications, according to the administrative complaint filed by the Health Department. She was told to go to yet another clinic, A Gyn Diagnostic Center in Hialeah, where the procedure would be performed the next day, on July 20, 2006.

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.

No working telephone number could be found for Gonzalez, and an attorney who has represented the clinic in the past did not return a message.

At 23 weeks, an otherwise healthy fetus would have a slim but legitimate chance of survival. Quadruplets born at 23 weeks last year at The Nebraska Medical Center survived.

some more details from LifeSiteNews:

Shanice’s mother, Sycloria Williams, learned she was pregnant early in July of 2006 when she went to the hospital complaining of abdominal pain and bleeding. She decided to abort the baby, and visited the Miramar Woman Center in Miramar, Fla., where she was referred to abortionist Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique. Dr. Renelique inserted laminaria sticks to dilate the cervix and prescribed additional medication to be taken that night in preparation for the procedure the next morning at a Hialeah clinic.

Williams arrived at the Hialeah clinic on the morning of July 20, 2006, feeling ill and in severe pain from the medication the night before. Despite the fact that the doctor nor any other licensed health practitioners were present, the abortion center’s receptionist gave Williams Cytotec, which induces labor and also dilates the cervix. Williams, however, began to feel even worse with nausea and cramping. According to testimony, the staff had her sit in the clinic’s recovery room area where she waited for hours in severe and increasing abdominal pain without medical staff available.

At one point, unable to remain seated, Williams braced herself with the arms of the recliner chair she was sitting on. As she lifted herself, her water broke and she delivered a live baby girl onto the seat of the recliner. The baby writhed and gasped for air, still connected to Williams by the umbilical cord.

Immobilized by shock, Williams watched Gonzalez run into the room, cut the umbilical cord with a pair of orange-handled shears, stuff the baby into a red biohazard bag and throw the bag into a garbage can. Shortly thereafter, the doctor arrived at the clinic and sedated Williams. The doctor’s medical records failed to indicate that Williams had delivered a live baby that was killed by the clinic.

Anonymous callers notified police at least three times about the live birth and murder, and when police executed a search warrant on July 22, 2006, they found medical records but couldn’t locate the baby’s remains. Six days later, another anonymous caller told police the baby’s body had been hidden on the roof. Police responded but didn’t find the baby’s body on the roof. After another anonymous tip police got another search warrant and found the decomposing baby in a cardboard box in a closet at the clinic. DNA linked the baby’s remains to Williams.

The Miami-Dade County medical examiner performed an autopsy which showed that the baby’s lungs had been filled with air before her killing, proving it was a live birth. But the examiner blamed the death on “extreme prematurity,” ignoring eyewitness testimony that the baby had been murdered. The Thomas More Society took an interest in the case when a local law school professor was quoted in The Miami Herald to the effect that if the baby wasn’t “viable,” then it “couldn’t be a case of homicide.”

“That opinion is dead wrong,” says Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society. “A disabled or dying patient may not be ‘viable’ in the sense of being able to live very long or without help, but if you kill them, it’s murder. This was a case of infanticide, and we’re not going to let it go ignored or unpunished.”

and some information about the board hearing from the Buffalo News:

At Friday's hearing, Renelique told the board of his life-long quest to be a doctor. He said there are generations of physicians in his family, and that he decided to follow the same path after seeing his father treat patients.

Renelique described saving a woman's life during the second year of his medical residency in Haiti. He later left his home country to work and train in the United States. It was never his intention to do abortions, he said.

"That was not part of my goals when I came to Florida," he said. "But I had to do it to survive."

During the board's questioning, Dr. Elizabeth D. Tucker, an obstetrician-gynecologist from Pensacola, asked Renelique about three different types of medical forceps. Renelique replied that he possessed each of the instruments.

After each question, Tucker also held up a metal instrument, different from the one she had named and inquired about. One of the tools was a metal rod with an arrow attached at the tip.

Tucker asked Renelique if he had that. He replied that he did.

"For the record, these are from my antique collection," she said later. "We don't use these in terminations."

I don't buy Renelique's lie: "...that ( to do abortions) was not part of my goals when I came to Florida," he said. "But I had to do it to survive."

There are MANY other ways to survive without murdering innocent life. Honestly, as I read about and learned more about this case - It is just so ugly, sickening, disgusting, and .... there are not words to describe it. There is absolutely no respect for life. Abortion clinics and abortionist show such a hatred for the sacredness of human life. Do they enjoy killing? How do they continue to slaughter innocent human babies day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year? How does one become so heartless, callous, and evil?? We are not born this way. I see how my rough and tumble three year old son changes from his rough and energetic ways to become gentle and mild when he is around a baby, and how he will caress their little sweet cheeks. I believe we are all born with this love in us, what happened?? I will never understand how abortionist can live with themselves, or how they can become so hardened that they don't see the evil that they are doing.

I'm assuming the abortion clinic staff never informed Williams fully, that they never told her such that her baby could be born alive and has a beating heart and that she could regret her decision of abortion for the rest of her life. Abortion facilities are expert at using the normal psychology of pregnancy to sell abortion.

For all those who voted for Obama.....congratulations!! Sadly this is what Obama voted for.... this is what we will have to deal with for the next four years....murder on demand! -- and sadly this is an everyday occurrence.

this story is both nauseating and heart breaking...i just don't even have the words to describe what i think about this.

You know, stories like this make me think gunning these bastards down isn't a bad thing.

RightKlik said...

How Obama supporters can shrug off his support for infanticide is totally beyond me.

Gayle said...

How Obama can live with himself is beyond me! What would he have done if Michelle had wanted an abortion?

This particular case is so beyond sickening I'm unable to accurately describe it. That poor baby and I can just imagine how seeing a living, breathing baby must have affected the mother, even though she was there for an abortion. I've given birth to three children and it's hard to understand how anyone doesn't feel a connection to the child inside the womb. I hope the people responsible for the murder of this baby rot in jail. Losing his license isn't nearly punishment enough!

At 23 weeks, an otherwise healthy fetus would have a slim but legitimate chance of survival.

Actually, a friend of mine gave birth to such a preemie over 20 years ago. The little boy had some struggles "getting started," but he's alive and well -- and about to graduate from a prestigious university.

I've seen a 23-week baby. A human being!

The doctor in the case cited here should be locked up for murder. Period.


And thank you, A Red Voice, for stopping by my site and leaving an insightful, spot-on comment.

Voice Of Conservative America just visited your blog

Average American said...

to anonymous... I would never condone gunning down abortionists, but I do understand why someone would want to do it - As far as I'm concerned abortion "doctors" rate the same as the Nazi doctors who did human murderous experimentation on the victims of the Jewish Holocaust - Doctors have always been thought of as the saviors of mankind, the healers, and caretakers of our utter existence. This is why the practices by these "doctors" are so sickening, outrageous, nauseating, heart breaking and shocking; they violate the trust placed in them by humanity.

& yes Mel, RightKlik, Jarnco5, & Gayle I fully agree with you -words can't describe how I feel, how can he live with himself & how any of his supporters shrug this off - is beyond me...

Always on Watch - my cousin just had twins a few months early, both were about one pound each - they are still in the hospital but alive & believe it or not -human - not a blob of cells. I fully agree, these abortionist should be locked away for murder... period.

Thanks my visiting my site Always on Watch, Jarnco5, Average American, Throwing Stones, & for continuing to visit it - Mel, RighKlik, Gayle,... I'm fairly new at blogging - I started the blog a couple of months ago to mainly post lots of articles for my family to read, but just got into commenting & joining the conversation with other bloggers a few weeks ago. It is wonderful to meet a bunch of other great conservatives!! I'll be visiting your sites as well. Thanks for all you do to spread and stand for the truth!!
