The name Hialeah probably comes from two Muskogee Indian words for pretty and prairie. The prairie is gone now replaced by a dense suburban area which has become the 5th largest city in Florida. This is where a bit of hell came to earth in 2006.
On July 20th, Shanice Denise walked into a women’s clinic in Hialeah to get an abortion. The person who performed the abortion, Belkis Gonzalez, did not have a license to perform medicine and failed to achieve the desired objective. The baby, now known as baby Shanice, was born alive. This is attested by two witnesses who saw the baby moving at the time and by forensic pathologist Abdullah Fatteh who examined the evidence later.
Belkis Gonzalez, being an abortionist at heart if not on paper, zipped the moving baby into a biohazard bag and dumped it in the trash. Someone called 911 but when police arrived they could find no sign of the baby, dead or alive.
It turns out that, despite her chosen trade, Belkis Gonzalez had some sense she had done something, well…wrong. When the police came she took the baby (still alive? dead? no one knows) and placed it on the roof of the clinic. Only when police were called a second time with a tip to check the roof did they find the body of baby Shanice.
It has been nearly two years since the police found the body. The evidence that it was born alive is overwhelming. Based on the Born Alive Protection act of 2002, baby Shanice had the right to life at the time she was stuffed in a plastic bag. Yet despite this vision of hell playing out in a Florida suburb, no one has been charged with her murder.
Of course the truth is that abortion centers are in the business of murder or manslaughter or whatever you wish to term it. This one just took a little longer. How long exactly? About as long as it take an infant to suffocate. Or to bleed out through an unclamped umbilical cord perhaps? Take your pick. I don’t claim to know. But I hope anyone reading this who supports “abortion rights” will ponder that question for a long time to come.
