The Incomprehensibility of Abortion

Last week, the National Right to Life Committee sent out a mailing concerning Florida abortionist Pierre Renelique, which is now online—“Further Reflections on Abortionist Pierre Renelique.” Renelique recently lost his medical license because of Sycloria Williams’ disturbing story. Williams went to Renelique’s abortion clinic to “terminate her pregnancy,” but her termination came in the form of delivery rather than abortion. Nonetheless, after delivery, one of the clinic’s owners, Belkis Gonzales, took the newborn and placed her in a plastic biohazard bag. Then, the child was thrown out in the garbage. The police found the baby’s corpse in a cardboard box the following week.

What surprises me about the case is the supposed media shock and outrage. Had the “termination” occurred with scissors and forceps an hour before birth, then these ever so concerned citizens would only have argued about supporting a woman’s reproductive rights. Various press reports even quote N.O.W. chapter leaders who feign concern. Abortion rights supporters somehow muster up the gall to state that our society cannot treat babies like trash. Yet, tossing bodily remains in the garbage is the standard procedure for disposing each murdered fetus. Dead babies are mere medical waste for the abortion industry.

I wonder if the abortion establishment finds such cases upsetting simply because they draw attention to the horrible truth that society attempts to ignore. Botched abortion procedures are p.r. headaches; the story of Williams’ daughter is bad for business.

However, we cannot attribute such motivations to Williams herself. In the N.R.L.C. story, we read this bizarre passage:

Yesterday’s story dealt with the Florida Board of Medicine decision last Friday to revoke the license of abortionist Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique. The board upheld the Department of Health allegations that he falsified medical records, inappropriately delegated tasks to unlicensed personnel and committed malpractice. Ms. Williams had “planned to have an abortion but instead gave birth to a baby,” according to CNN.

Williams has sued Renelique, the clinic and its staff , seeking damages. She alleges in her suit that “she witnessed the murder of her daughter” and said she “sustained severe emotional distress, shock and psychic trauma which have resulted in discernible bodily injury.”

Imagine a philanderer who calls the cops to arrest a whore with whom he has just conducted business, citing how her activity harms society and family life.

Evil truly is unintelligible.
