A doctor who performed a botched abortion is under investigation.
WiredPRNews.com – An abortion doctor in Florida is under investigation after a botched procedure. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the clinic of Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique was paid $1,200 to terminate the pregnancy of eighteen year old Sycloria Williams, however before the doctor arrived, the teenager delivered her baby, which staff members put into a biohazard bag and threw away. The baby girl’s remains were recovered by police a week later.
Williams has filed a lawsuit against the doctor and owners of the clinic. Tom Pennekamp, her attorney, is quoted in the AP report as stating, “I don’t care what your politics are, what your morals are, this should not be happening in our community.”
Williams was 23 weeks pregnant at the time of the incident. As noted by the AP, the baby, which she named Shanice, was determined to have air filled lungs, and therefore had been born alive, though an autopsy.
