Abortion Clinic Throws Away Live Baby In Miami-Dade County
"The staff began screaming that the baby was alive; at which time [name redacted*] cut the umbilical cord, threw it into a red bag with black printing. [Name redacted*] then swept the baby, with her hands, into the same red bag along with the gauze used during the procedure."
This was the scene at an abortion clinic in
This story is getting some fresh air this week as a funeral which was planned for the baby has been pushed back while the State continues to hold the body during the investigation against the clinic.
I bring the story up because it provides a perfect example of the attitude the pro-death movement has adopted. The chief argument they make is that unborn children are not children, they are not human, they are not independent life. Because of this view, they advance that a woman’s “choice” is of more value than what they like to think of as just a blob of tissue. What this story reveals, though, is that for some that argument is hollow because they value “choice” over even the life of what is unarguably a living outside the womb.
It may be pointed out that, as the examiner conducting the autopsy pointed out, historically, the survival rate for children born under 24 weeks is 0%. However, what is revealing is the response by the clinic staff. Rather than making any attempt to help the child, it is swept into a trash bag. Allegedly, the staff then hid the body on the roof of the clinic for a time.
I am certainly not saying that all abortion advocates have this mind set, or would have reacted the same way. However, it is shocking to see such an example that for some and, I fear, too many simply do not value the life of children, whether in the womb or not, when they conflict with that pinnacle of American values, “choice.”
