Obama's Startling Reaction to Funeral Service for Baby Killed After Failed Abortion Renews Calls for Prosecution
New video shows clips from Baby Shanice's funeral along with the Obama reaction
HIALEAH, FL, Nov. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- In the wake of her long- anticipated funeral, inflammatory comments by President-elect Barack Obama have renewed calls for charges to be filed in the death of Baby Shanice Denise Osbourne, who was born alive after a failed abortion at a Hialeah, Florida, abortion clinic, shoved into a plastic bag, and tossed on the roof of the abortion building to die in July, 2006.
Rev. O'Neal Dozier, of the World Wide Christian Center where Baby Shanice's funeral took place last month, used the opportunity to expose Obama for opposing legislation in Illinois that would have provided protection for babies like Shanice.
In startling response to the media, an Obama spokesperson accused Rev. Dozier of engaging in "the most disgusting and manipulative kind of hate politics around."
"In trying to defend the indefensible, all Obama and his henchmen can do is demonize those who are telling the truth about his voting record," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "No smear tactic can erase the fact that Obama clearly voted to deny protections for babies like Shanice. In spite of opposition from Obama, there are clear laws protecting live babies from being murdered in cold blood."
The Obama camp's inflammatory remarks only served to call attention to the lack of enforcement of laws that are designed to protect babies who die during failed abortions, and have renewed demands for prosecutors to end the delay in charging unlicensed abortion worker Belkis Gonzalez with Baby Shanice's murder.
It was Gonzalez, according to a clinic worker who secretly reported the incident to the police, who cut the baby's umbilical cord and, while the little girl was still moving as gasping for air, swept her into a biohazard bag filled with chemicals, and tossed her on the roof of the abortion clinic in order to conceal her body from discovery. Police later recovered Baby Shanice's body and an autopsy proved that Shanice's lungs had breathed air.
After over two years of prosecutorial stalling, Operation Rescue is renewing its demand that authorities arrest and charge Gonzalez.
"In the interest of justice, we need an immediate arrest and prosecution of those responsible for this innocent baby's murder," said Newman. "We urge the public to contact the local prosecutor and demand that this case to move forward."
