People in the pro-life world would look at that reference and find it completely redundant.

At conception, it is a human being that’s conceived. To terminate
that human being at any stage on the continuum of his or her life is
killing. Every killing of an innocent and vulnerable human being is a
crime against humanity.

But since abortions happen in the ‘clinics’ set up by that industry,
and in the womb of the mother, usually only the staff there sees the
grisly results. The public has been trained to think of it as ‘a
choice’.

Nobody in their right mind would choose this.

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.

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

“I don’t care what your politics are, what your morals are, this
should not be happening in our community,” said Tom Pennekamp, a Miami
attorney representing Williams in her lawsuit against Renelique and the
clinic owners.

This is beyond outrageous.

“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.”…

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.

This is mind-numbing. Although, it’s only been through numbing minds to the truth that abortion has thrived this long.

This is mind-numbing to everyone who understands the truth about
human life from conception. And this little baby girl was 23 weeks
along in her life development.

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.

An autopsy determined Williams’ baby – she named her Shanice – had
filled her lungs with air, meaning she had been born alive, according
to the Department of Health.

This is a baby former Senator Barack Obama would not provide with
rights or protection, since he voted against the Born Alive Infants
Protection Act. A baby doesn’t get rights until he or she is fully
born, under such beliefs. Well this baby was fully born.

And her mother saw her.

“She came face to face with a human being,” Pennekamp said. “And that changed everything.”

Which is why the abortion movement fights so hard to prevent any
laws requiring ultrasound be provided to women considering abortion.

Fr. Frank Pavone, President of Priests for Life, frequently says
“America will not reject abortion until America sees abortion.” Just
the description of what happened in this infanticide in Miami is a
horrible mental picture. Seen enough?
