Arrest in Thrown Away Baby Who Survived Abortion--Only to Die in Medical Waste Bag
Readers of SHS will recall the awful case of the baby who survived a late term abortion only to be--allegedly--put in a medical waste bag and literally thrown away. The abortionist already lost his license in the case, and now there has been an arrest. From the story:
An abortion clinic owner is accused of delivering a live baby during a botched procedure and then throwing the infant away. Belkis Gonzalez, 42, was arrested Tuesday and charged with practicing medicine without a license and tampering with evidence, both felonies, said Ed Griffith, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office. If found guilty, Gonzalez would face at least a year in prison and up to 15 years.I was pretty outraged that the charges were practicing medicine without a license, etc. I thought they should include murder, or at the very least, manslaughter. But then I saw this part of the story:
Authorities were unable to definitively determine the cause of death--and Gonzalez's role in it--because the baby's body had decomposed by the time it was found eight days later, said Griffith, the attorney's office spokesman.Covering up the alleged crime clearly paid in this case. I also hope the Feds weigh in with a violation of the Infant Born Alive Protection Act.
