Baby born alive and then discarded
A child who survived abortion was allegedly taken from the mother, put in a disposal bag and later found decomposing in a box. The Thomas More Society has filed a suit about the case in Miami. It is said that Shanice Denise Osbourne was born in 2006 after a clinic’s receptionist gave her mother a labour-inducing drug. An inquest found she had drawn breath. The case continues.

A quote from the LifeSiteNews.com article:
The Thomas More Society took an interest in the case when a local law school professor was quoted in The Miami Herald to the effect that if the baby wasn’t “viable,” then it “couldn’t be a case of homicide.”
“That opinion is dead wrong,” says Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society. “A disabled or dying patient may not be ‘viable’ in the sense of being able to live very long or without help, but if you kill them, it’s murder. This was a case of infanticide, and we’re not going to let it go ignored or unpunished.”
Bravo Thomas More Society!
