‘A young mother has accused a Florida clinic of botching her abortion, allowing her child to be born alive – then putting the baby into a plastic bag and throwing her out with the trash.
Sycloria Williams is suing Dr Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique and the abortion clinic’s owners in a case that has shocked both sides of the abortion debate.
Aged 18, Ms Williams went to an abortion clinic outside Miami and paid $1,200 for Dr Renelique to terminate her 23-week pregnancy.
Three days later, she sat in a reclining chair, medicated and ready for the procedure.
But Dr Renelique did not arrive in time – and, according to Williams and the Florida Department of Health, she went into labour and delivered a live baby girl.
Then, Ms Williams and the Department of Health claim, one of the clinic’s owners – who has no medical licence – cut the infant’s umbilical cord.
Ms Williams says the woman placed the baby in a plastic bio-hazard bag and threw it out.
Police recovered the decomposing remains in a cardboard box a week later after getting anonymous tips.
An autopsy revealed air in the baby girl’s lungs – proving that she was born alive and breathing.’
There is so much about this that is so wrong, I don’t know where to start!
