The Value of Life

February 16, 2010 | NeW Staff

This is a shocking story.

Just a few weeks ago, a lawsuit was filed against Sycloria Williams and Belkis Gonzales in Miami, Florida. Allegedly, while going to get an abortion, Sycloria gave birth to the child she intended to abort, and the abortion clinic owner, Belkis, murdered the child by suffocating her in a biohazard bag and then leaving her to decay in a cardboard box in the clinic’s closet.

“The case claims that Shanice [Sycloria’s child] 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.”

Sycloria had been having severe pains and abdominal bleeding, and instead of going to the emergency room, she went to the abortion clinic.

“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. 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 only reason police began an investigation of the murder was due to the anonymous callers in the clinic who witnessed the abomination. Eventually they found the baby girl dead in a cardboard box in one of the clinic’s closets.

I don’t need to say much along with this story, but I think there is one take-home point. This abortion clinic has no regard for life whatsoever. Most people who are pro-choice claim that a life begins when outside of the womb, and those who are pro-life argue it begins at conception; but when this type of story emerges it transcends the pro-life and pro-choice argument. It is an utter lack of respect for life at its very beginning, and I think both sides can agree that it is shocking and saddening.
