Baby Born Alive at Abortion Clinic and Then Killed

A teenager who was 23 weeks pregnant went to an abortion clinic in Hialeah, Florida to have an abortion. In a case involving outright murder and a crude cover up, the baby was stuffed into a bio hazard waste bag and discarded while gasping for breath.

"In a lawsuit being filed by the Thomas More Society on behalf of the murdered infant, the grim facts of the case are laid out in chilling detail. Their web site reports on the allegations as follows.

On Tuesday, January 27, 2009, suit was filed by the Thomas More Society in Miami on behalf of Shanice Denise Osbourne, an infant girl who was allegedly murdered in July, 2006.

The case claims that Shanice was born alive and then murdered by abortion clinic owner, Belkis Gonzalez. Thirteen defendants (including Gonzalez, abortionist Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacques Renelique and their conglomerate of four South Florida abortion clinics) have been sued for unlicensed and unauthorized medical practice, botched abortions, evasive tactics, false medical records and the killing, hiding and disposing of the baby"

According to all accounts, the mother witnessed the live birth of her gasping new born daughter, who was stuffed into a biohazard medical waste bag while still living. The account continues as follows.

"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."

Certain forms of societal madness deaden us spiritually and morally if we do not raise our voices in protest. If a mother had given birth at home and tossed a live baby in a dumpster, she would be liable to hard time in prison. Such cases make headlines with regularity. We now find that if a doctor does the same thing that it is not murder but a "procedure". How many times has such a thing happened when the mother went along and did not report it?

When Barack Obama was in the Illinois State Senate, he vetoed legislation that would have provided protection to abortion survivors. In inner city neighbourhoods, abortion is tacitly encouraged. Abortion puts the value of a life in the hands of human arbiters. It is a slippery slope, one that we are sliding down at breakneck speed. Now, even the elderly are being pushed to end their lives in the "right to die" movement. How long will be before this turns into the "duty to die" ?

Former Colorado Governor Richard Lamm stated infamously in a 1984 speech, "People who die without having life artificially extended are similar to ''leaves falling off a tree and forming humus for the other plants to grow up,''

''You've got a duty to die and get out of the way,'' said the 48-year-old Governor. ''Let the other society, our kids, build a reasonable life.''

What will our society look like when the value of human life is reduced to a profit loss statement? We are well on the way there, with people like Governor Lamm showing us the way.

The feminist movement has been hijacked by a culture of death that is a tool of genteel racism and bare knuckles capitalism. The fact has been written out of history books that the early feminists of the 19th century were pro life. They rightly sought to alleviate the economic despair that would push a mother to abort her child. They noted perceptively that a woman could be forced by an abusive spouse to abort a child.

Fortunately, there is a section of the feminist movement that remains true to its founding principles. Feminists For Life provides valuable information about the history of abortion laws in America and the statements of early feminist leaders. They provide a welcome contrast to the anti Jewish rhetoric of some abortion activists.

The fight against abortion is clearly so important that no one of any faith who opposes it should be made to feel unwelcome. Sites such as Holy War ( it takes a while to load this site) use the corpses of the murdered unborn to shield their hateful ideology by using the evils of abortion and the image of some misguided Jewish supporters of abortion to incite hatred of Jews. It would be a terrible crime to leave such individuals as gate keepers of the Right to Life Movement. Even unlikely supporters of the rights of the unborn such as atheists and socialists should have a place in this movement. A one issue organisation should stick to a clear cut program that broadens its base of support for its agenda. The extremists who are attempting to hijack the right to life movement are actually costing the lives of the unborn by discrediting the cause.

It is important for people who are pro labour and in favour of women's rights to take their place in a broad based coalition for life that includes adherents of all faiths. Lives are at stake. What do we become when we stand by and do nothing? We can not turn away. We must not be silent. Sphere: Related Content

Something to keep in mind amidst all the outrage: Things like this are literally an everyday occurrence. The strange and shocking aspect is merely that it's being reported, talked about, and perhaps might even lead to prosecution.

where did you find out about this case and why is it not being reported in the mainstream media? This is a frightening story and I think the point you make about a person who gives birth early and throws their baby in a dumpster being liable for their actions is very well said. I am in total shock!

Well said. I fisited your web site that you linked back to It is now on both my web sites , and I am also putting up feminists for life. They are a priceless resource. I am sure you have checked them out. Thank you for doing G-d's work.

It is strange that pro-Choice advocates are appalled at this as well as those on the pro-Life side. The Doctor has lost his license to practice medicine and the staff there will be brought up on murder charges it seems.

Only the very far left, child-haters are crying about the "Right to Choose", most people are screaming "MURDER"! Loudly and clearly!
