This photo shows a live baby in the womb at 22 weeks of age. Sycloria Williams of Florida was 18 years old and 23 weeks pregnant when she went for an abortion.

Williams had what is basically an induced labour, and the baby was supposed to be still born. But there is a dirty secret in the abortion industry: a good number of late-term babies aborted this way are born alive and left to die. Sycloria delivered a live baby girl on a chair at an abortion clinic and watched her twitching, hissing (i.e. breathing*) daughter being put into a rubbish bag:

Williams said she stood against the wall, glancing in horror at her newborn baby. “She wasn’t moving much. Twitching, gasping for air. She wasn’t crying though, just hissing. Hissing sounds only.”

The sight of a fully formed baby was a complete surprise to Williams.

“I thought it would be a blob thing, but bigger, not a baby,” she said. “She looked like a Water Baby. Like those dolls you fill up with water. She was really little, like this,” she said, holding her hands about 12 inches apart.

(Water Babies are sold in stores such as Toys ”R” Us. A product description on the Toys ”R” Us online store reads, “Water Babies are water-filled dolls that replicate the warmth, weight and feel of a real baby.”)

According to the lawsuit and Williams’ recollection, Gonzalez, the clinic’s owner, who has no health care licensing, came into the waiting room, cut the umbilical cord, and scooped Shanice’s body into a red biohazard bag, sealed it and tossed it into a trash can.

The one that was saved

Samuel Alexander ArmasThis photo shows shows surgery being done on Samuel Alexander Armas is 21 weeks old and he is grasping the surgeon’s finger. Here’s the photographer’s story:

As a veteran photojournalist in Nashville, Tennessee, I was hired by USA Today newspaper to photograph a spina bifida corrective surgical procedure. It was to be performed on a twenty-one week old fetus in utero at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. At that time, in 1999, twenty-one weeks in utero was the earliest that the surgical team would consider for surgery. The worst possible outcome would be that the surgery would cause premature delivery, and no child born earlier than twenty-three weeks had survived.

The tension could be felt in the operating room as the surgery began. A typical C-section incision was made to access the uterus, which was then lifted out and laid at the junction of the mother’s thighs. The entire procedure would take place within the uterus, and no part of the child was to breach the surgical opening. During the procedure, the position of the fetus was adjusted by gently manipulating the outside of the uterus. The entire surgical procedure on the child was completed in 1 hour and thirteen minutes. When it was over, the surgical team breathed a sigh of relief, as did I.

As a doctor asked me what speed of film I was using, out of the corner of my eye I saw the uterus shake, but no one’s hands were near it. It was shaking from within. Suddenly, an entire arm thrust out of the opening, then pulled back until just a little hand was showing. The doctor reached over and lifted the hand, which reacted and squeezed the doctor’s finger. As if testing for strength, the doctor shook the tiny fist. Samuel held firm. I took the picture! Wow! It happened so fast that the nurse standing next to me asked, “What happened?” “The child reached out,” I said. “Oh. They do that all the time,” she responded.

It would be difficult to be pro-abortion after witnessing that.

What a contrast: one room where babies are murdered, and another where they are saved. Which do you think would have the happiest atmosphere?

What are your reactions to these stories?

    That anyone could possibly think a baby at 23 weeks would be “a blob thing” shows what disgusting lies these women are told by the authorities.

    I helped out at a pro-life stall last year at the Christchurch A&P show, and we were showing life-size models of babies to people. Many were shocked how well developed the 12-week baby was, because of the misinformation you are fed these days. But for someone to think the same about a 23 week one means there has been some serious lying going on.

  3. That anyone older than 12 would think a 23-week old fetus would be a “blob thing” is a disgrace to our school systems and our mainstream media. You don’t have to provide sex education to teach basic biology. We’ve known for centuries what miscarried babies look like, and we’ve seen sonogram pictures for decades. How is it that anyone can be shocked when a BABY comes out of a BABY BUMP???

    • Catherine: I agree, although individual responsibility does come into it, i.e. the truth about unborn babies is available if people look for it.

  5. I actually spent time and read this?

    Why is Williams suing? Is it for money?

    She is nothing but a liar as far as I can tell. If/When you are pregnant either way google it….You will see when a baby looks like a baby and so on. Which I am sure any semi-intelligent 18 year old would do.

    I am pro-choice. I will always feel that way.

    It makes me sick to see these baby die…..however I see the sides of MOLESTED children and RAPE victims. I would never ask them to carry a baby to term for adoption.

    It’s not a babies choice to be made however it’s not a womans or childs choice to be raped.

    • Mandy: thank you for your comment. I do not agree with what you say, but I will continue to defend your right to say it.

      Why are you pro choice murder when it makes you sick to see babies die?

      This post covers pregnancy arising from rape:

      • THERE IS MORNING AFTER PILL U CAN TAKE WITHIN 72 HOURS.. IT IS ALMOST 3 DAYS !!!!
        AND GOING FOR ABORTION? MAYB THAT IDIOT SHOULD HAVE DONE IT EARLIER THAN 21 WEEKS. MAYBE IN THE FIRST MONTH WHEN HER MENSTRUATION DIDNT COME IN TIME .
        BTW IT ISNT A ROCKET SCIENCE TO FIGURE IT OUT THAT OKAY I AM RAPED MAYB I COULD BE PREGNANT TOO?
        I AM NOT BAPTIZED AND I STILL FEEL THIS IS CLEARLY A MURDER THATS IT. IT IS NOT THE BABY’S FAULT THAT HER MOTHER WAS RAPED.
        AND I AM A WOMAN !!!!!
        I AM STARTING TO FEEL SORRY FOR THAT MAN WHO SHOT THAT DOCTOR. HE IS RIGHT !!!!
        IN SCHOOLS THEY SHOULD TEACH WOMEN ABOUT THINGS LIKE THIS.
        E.G SPERM CAN LIVE IN THE BODY FOR DAYS . THATS WHY YOU SHOULDNT MAKE SEX DURING MENSTRUATION WITHOUT PROTECTION.
        OR U CAN TAKE MORNING AFTER PILLS ETC.
        VERY DIFFICULT REALLY
        AS FOR RAPING , MANY TIMES IN MY LIFE EVEN IN MY YOUNG AGE MEN TRIED TO MOLEST ME UNSUCCESSFULLY OF COURSE U HAVE TO BE FIRM AND STRONG A REAL SURVIVE TYPE!!!!!
        NOW I WOULD JUST CUT THE MAN — OFF.
        EVERY MOTHER SHOULD TEACH HER DAUGHTER FOR THINGS LIKE THESE AND NOT TRYING TO PROTECT MALE FAMILY MEMBERS .
        YES BTW I DONT BELIEVE THAT A 18 Y OLD DOESNT KNOW ANYTHING—THEY ARE MUCH MORE MATURED THAN I WAS 12 YEAR AGO.
        BECAUSE OF THE TV—-THEY HAVE MORE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THINGS. SO THIS IS BLAHBLAH
        YES AND THERE IS BROAD BAND INTERNET TOO WITH GOOGLE.
        LETS BET IF U ASK HER ABOUT THE SEXUAL POSITIONS OR TOYS SHE COULD TELL YOU A FEW. —LITTLE INNOCENT TEENAGERS…

  6. Abortion is murder. There’s no way it can’t be murder. Look at a fetus even at 6 weeks old… Anyone can see that the little life form growing there is a human being. It has a heart beat; it is human; it is murder to kill it.

    You can’t be pro-choice, but hate to see babies die. it’s a contradiction. And a MOLESTED girl isn’t going to get pregnant. Molestation is not the same as Rape.

    And even if a woman or girl is raped and she does get pregnant, THERE IS A REASON THAT BABY IS GROWING IN HER. I realize I can’t always pull out the “God-Card” because not everyone is a believer, but there is a reason God grows a baby and there is a reason that there is a baby inside a woman. Whether that baby is wanted or not, that baby has a reason for being.

  7. has anyone ever thought of the this… maybe the reason why our world is so messed up and people are so immoral in recent years is because babies that were supposed to be born are not and babies that were ment to not make it in this life were saved by modern medicine (not saying anything bad about it cause my baby would not make it if it werent for it [2 stillborns and one on the way])… now im not a big o’ jebus freak, i mean i really have some doubts, but what if a woman was pregnant with jesus making his return to our world? and she decided to have an abortion? we would be screwed. and as for the girl not knowing that a 21 week fetus is anything more then a blob, she should really go back and redo school. i am 20 weeks and my little girl moves and flips and kicks and headbutts my bladder and sides all the time to the point were i cant sleep because she is such a mover… i promised her i would buy her a trampoline for her 3rd birthday if she kept this up lol… kinda cant wait for her to be pregnant now so i can laugh and say “ha now you know how i felt”. she just had second thoughts after the abortion and had the motherly love for her baby once she saw that precious face like any other woman would and i feel for her cause now she is going through the worst pain imaginable… she took the life of her own child!!! poor baby that is why babies should not have babies
