Baby Girl born alive and killed after surviving late-term abortion
LifeSite ^ | November 2, 2006 | Hilary White

HIALEA, November 2, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Two Co-owners of a Miami-area abortion facility called Ginecologia may be charged with second-degree murder for killing a baby girl born alive in a recovery room. Co-owners Belkis Gonzalez and Siomara Senises are being investigated after Miami-Dade County police found the badly decomposed body of a baby girl at the facility. A search warrant reported that there was “probable cause” to pursue a second degree murder investigation.

A woman identified by Operation Rescue in their October 23 report as Ms. Betty Rojas informed police that a child had been killed by “a doctor” by drowning after being born alive.

18-year old Sycloria Williams, told police that she had arrived at the facility July 20 for the second half of a late-term abortion. She says she gave birth to a living baby girl while sitting in a recliner in the facility’s recovery room. Ms. Williams told police that she had watched her daughter moving and gasping for air for approximately five minutes.

The warrant says that the staff “began screaming that the baby was alive.” Then, “Ms. Belkis Gonzalez cut the umbilical cord, threw it into a red bag with black printing. Ms. Gonzalez then swept the baby, with her hands, into the same red bag along with the gauze used during the procedure.”

Eight days later, police found the body of the child which Rojas had informed them had been treated with a caustic chemical and left in the heat of the Florida sun to accelerate decomposition in a possible attempt to dispose of the evidence.

Proceedings are awaiting the results of an autopsy that, due to the severe decomposition of the body, might still be inconclusive. Police are interested in evidence that the baby was born alive and that she was possibly over 24 weeks gestation, the legal limit for abortion in Florida.

Since the October 23 report, the Miami New Times published a story revealing the substandard conditions of the for-profit abortion facilities owned or operated by Senises and Gonzalez. Hialeah Police Deputy Chief Mark Overton told the New Times that an unnamed witness confirmed that “the baby was born alive; it was attempting to breathe.”

Overton said, “This isn't about a botched abortion; there never was an abortion, and the mother is not the victim…The victim is the baby, and whether that baby had an hour or eight hours' worth of life, she had a right to that.”

“Palmetto General Hospital is only five minutes away,” he said, indicating that the child’s life could have been saved. “It is our opinion that this is a homicide, an unlawful killing of a human being.”

Overton told the New Times that the baby’s remains had weighed between two and three pounds and measured about 12 inches long. The average gestation of a twelve-inch foetus is between 24 and 25 weeks. The average for a baby weighing two pounds is 27 weeks.
Another of facility owned or operated by  Senises and Gonzalez was closed by police in 2004 after the abortion of twins was botched and it was revealed that one doctor hired to do abortions there had no medical license. A third facility is still in operation.

On October 29, Overton told WorldNetDaily that he believes charges of second-degree murder will be filed in the case.

My wife is a retired nurse. She said that live births in abortion clinics happen more often than people want to admit. I just wonder why it is not first degree murder in this particular case. Maybe these "doctors" should be thrown into a bag of caustic in the hot Florida sun and see how they like it.

While the baby was gasping for air for five minutes that the mother knew of, what was she doing? Just sitting there in the recliner? When workers scooped her into a red medical waste bag, the mother didn't feel moved to stop them? How is she innocent here? Unbelievable.

All aborted babies are alive - otherwise there would be no need for an abortion.

My thoughts, too.
Drowning a newborn is premeditated and intentional.
Why a second degree charge?

Democrats defend abortion, as they once defended slavery, in almost the same way and by almost the same arguments, especially their references to “choice” (see Lincoln vs. Douglas in the Illinois debates). In both cases they flew smack-dab against natural right. In both cases they pleaded “choice.” No man, Lincoln said, can choose slavery for himself, thus neither can he do so for another. No woman can choose abortion for herself, thus neither can she do so for another. - Michael Novak

NYer,

Didn't we have a thread on this case already? It's very familiar but I can't find it. We should link them for support purposes if we can find the other.

That was my first thought too. If this is true, there definitly was intent. Also, with the 'panic' throughout the clinic, one might be able to assume conspiracy to cover up the the murder.

Mother should be charged too.

Yeah, the absolute worst part is that it REALLY doesn't bother them. Remember how protective of Roe v Wade they were during the Alito hearings? Made me sick.

This past week, I had the opportunity to visit an anatomy lab at a medical school. They had specimens in jars from way back in 1930's. Lots of "fetus'" from, I don't know, maybe 2 months on up. I will tell anyone, those little forms in those jars were babies...little humans.

This abortion clinic would not be in business and this murder of a live baby could never have happened without the enduring support and protection from the dems. They are an accessory to this murder in my eyes.

I just wonder why it is not first degree murder in this particular case.

I'm wondering the same thing. The only twisted logic I can come up with is that though it was premeditated, it was not first degree murder because it was not a person. It just accidently turned into a person at the last minute.

Sick.

Inside the demonic abortion world when they're born alive it's known as "the dreaded complication"

Just wait until after Tuesday and the House goes Democratic, the killing of babies will be allowed up until 12 months after they are born!

Where is Bob Casey Jr on this issue?

The People of Pennsylvania will have lost the greatest pro life Senator Rick Santorum!

Where is Bishop James C. Timlin of the Diocese of Scranton and a strong supporter of Casey Jr on this issue?
