New Jersey Rep Chris Smith recounts Sycloria Williams’ live birth, Florida doctor murdering child in a plastic bag

During a hearing on Capitol Hill on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, New Jersey Congressman Chris Smith, chair of the Pro-Life Caucus, recounted Sycloria Williams’ baby girl being born at 23 seeks, but was put in a plastic trash bag to die.

Smith said the U.S. House “needs to vote now and approve this humane, pro-child, human rights legislation.”

The bill, which would protect babies born alive in failed abortions, “makes clear that no mother of a child born alive can ever be prosecuted,” noted Smith, who is chair of the Pro-Life Caucus. “And it empowers the woman upon whom the abortion is performed to obtain appropriate relief in a civil action.”

The afternoon hearing, held at the House Capitol Visitor Center, was sponsored by House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana; Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Missouri, who reintroduced the measure Feb. 5; and the Pro-life Caucus.

Smith recounted Williams’ birth, at 23 weeks, a botched abortion, with her baby girl gasping for air, having her umbilical cord cut and then being thrown into a biohazard bag and put the bag in the trash. She has since filed a civil lawsuit accusing the staff of A GYN of Hialeah, Florida

Sycloria later had a funeral for her baby girl who she named Shanice.

Smith explained “Shockingly only six states—Florida, Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Texas—currently require the reporting of children born alive who survive abortion.”

Dr. Willard Cates, MD, former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Abortion Surveillance Unit, said: “(Live births) are little known because organized medicine, from fear of public clamor and legal action, treats them more as an embarrassment to be hushed up than a problem to be solved. It’s like turning yourself in to the IRS for an audit…what is there to gain? The tendency is not to report because there are only negative incentives.”

The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act seeks to end or at least mitigate this egregious child abuse by requiring that a health care provider must “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age or be fined and/or face up to five years in prison.”

According to the Susan B. Anthony List, a national pro-life organization, Democratic leaders in the House have refused more than 80 requests by pro-life Republicans for “unanimous consent” for the House to consider the measure.

A discharge petition filed by Scalise to hold a vote on the bill has garnered 201 signatures. If a majority of the 435 representatives sign the petition, it will force a vote by the full House.
