Abortionist Stripped of Medical License In The Hialeah Baby Murder Case

 

 http://www.operationrescue.org/

 


Shocking New Details Emerge At Renelique’s Revocation Hearing

  

A State Representative is now calling for criminal charges

Tampa, FL — New details have emerged concerning the Florida Medical Board Hearing held on Friday where Pierre Renelique’s medical license was revoked, including hints of other botched abortions, his callous disregard for the safety of his patients, and his shocking ignorance of medical equipment.

According to the Associated Press, Relelique told the Board that he did not attend to Sycloria Williams, the teen who birthed a live baby, Shanice Denice Osbourne, at his Hialeah abortion clinic when she was in labor because he was attending to another patient who was bleeding.

“So, in other words, he couldn’t take care of William’s botched abortion because he was trying to tend to a second botched abortion,” said Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger. “The Health Department got it right when it declared Renelique a danger to the public.”

Board member Dr. Jason Rosenberg rebuked Renelique for his “callous disregard” for Williams, saying, “You acted as though you had no interest in treating this patient.”

Renelique was also tested on his knowledge of medical equipment, which he failed miserably.

The AP reported:

 

During the board’s questioning, Dr. Elizabeth D. Tucker, an obstetrician-gynecologist from Pensacola, asked Renelique about three different types of medical forceps. Renelique replied that he possessed each of the instruments.

 

After each question, Tucker also held up a metal instrument, different from the one she had named and inquired about. One of the tools was a metal rod with an arrow attached at the tip.

 

Tucker asked Renelique if he had that. He replied that he did.

“For the record, these are from my antique collection,” she said later. “We don’t use these in terminations.”

Renelique also admitted that when he finally did arrive to attend to Williams, he was so confused and unaware of her condition that he started an abortion procedure on the sedated woman even though she had delivered an hour earlier. 

“That’s when one of the employees came to me and said, ‘Dr. Renelique, what are you looking for?’ I said, ‘I’m looking for a fetus.’ And she said, ‘What fetus?’”

State Representative Anitere Flores is now calling for criminal charges against Renelique and his accomplices.

“These events are nothing short of murder. It is our duty to call for immediate charges to be filed to ensure that no other young women become victims of this clinic,” she said.

“We are thankful that others are now seeing what we have been reporting on for the past two years, and are joining our call for criminal charges,” said Sullenger. “One has to wonder, though, how many women could have been spared and how many babies could have been saved, if the authorities had acted more swiftly. But, as the saying goes, it’s better late than never.”

 Abortion in Russia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Abortion in Russia is currently legal on request up to the 12th week of pregnancy. In 1920, Russia became the first country in the world to allow abortion in all circumstances, but, over the course of the 20th century, the legality of abortion changed more than once, with a ban being enacted again from 1936 to 1954. Russia has the highest number of abortions per woman of child-bearing age in the world according to UN data.[1] However, in terms of the total number, China has reported that it has over 13 million annual abortions, far surpassing the 2.7 million annual abortions Russia has.[2], and India has an estimated 11 million though accurate data there is difficult.

[edit] History

Prior to the October Revolution of 1917, Russian law considered abortion to be homicide, and it was punishable by a 4 to 5 year jail term with the loss of civil rights. The punishment was reduced to 3 years in 1903. From then on, support grew for eliminating the punishment of women who had abortions, and for punishing only doctors. However, the old law effectively remained in force until November 18, 1920, when the Bolshevik government issued a Decree on Women’s Healthcare, which provided for free and on demand abortions for the first time in the world (soon followed by Iceland). The legalization reduced the mortality rate of abortions from 4% to 0.28%. [8]

On June 27, 1936 the Stalin government issued a decree that prohibited abortions,[citation needed] while increasing financial help to mothers, families with multiple children, expanding the availability of obstetrical services and childcare facilities, more strictly enforcing child support obligations, and providing for minor changes in the divorce law. Abortion was allowed only in exceptional cases, such as a severe threat to a woman’s life or health, or upon indication of debilitating hereditary diseases of the parents.[citation needed]

After Stalin’s death, the prosecution of women for abortions was stopped on August 5, 1954. On November 23, 1955, the ban on abortion was lifted, and abortions were allowed on request if performed in a medical institution. This resulted in a significant reduction in the number of women who died as a result of abortion but also lead to a significant increase in the overall incidence of abortion.[9]

 This is a sad reality of how the massacre of abortion began.   Lord break the curse we beg!!!

 


 

 Rachel's testimony:

 

Rachel took the first of two drugs at Planned Parenthood that day and "felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I could literally feel it. It was the first time I understood what that phrase meant."

"It seemed rude to flush it," she thought to herself. "I should be having a burial or something." But then she heard her daughter awaken and thought, "Well, you have to get on with your day."

Is the Pro-Life Cause Winning? – Bull!

This week’s TIMEmagazine cover story announces that, forty years after Roe, the pro-life side is winning the abortion debate. Orwell’s Ministry of Truth must be running TIME because I am calling Bull!

For certain, there have been regulatory achievements for the protection of pregnant women and their preborn child.  They correctly report that Generation Y and beyond more willingly identify themselves as “Pro-Life” – which as is a good. There is no doubt that the countless announcements of pregnancy via social media using a clear ultrasound image to introduce the newest member of the family  make it harder to maintain the fallacy that the newest addition to the family is a clump of cells.

Whenever the beleaguered and ever persistent (because they are absolutely correct) Pro-Life Christian sees something like this a bit of triumphalism enters the mind because after four decades of marching in the coldest weather, praying outdoors in every season, being jailed, disparaged, arrested, sued and misunderstood; even the secular magazine TIME reports “We (Pro-Life) are winning!!!” and we have a community fist pump and high fives for everyone. The battle is so long…

WE ARE NOT WINNING. Sorry to ruin your happy dance.

On the positive side –

  •  The mere fact that the leaderless Pro-Life Movement even exists 40 years post-Roe is evidence of the involvement of the Holy Spirit (which means we will ultimately triumph). Indeed, there is no controversy 40 years after Brown integrated schools. Nor is woman’s suffrage even a passing thought following four decades after the 19th amendment.

Not so with Roe and her ugly cousin Doe. They will never be accepted because they are contrary to nature and an affront to nature’s God. The most primitive peoples from the dawn of time respect life, hold sacred the mystery of reproduction and revere motherhood. It is far from Judeo-Christian theology imposing itself on society when we say that wrenching a child from the womb is barbaric. This is not so much an informed by faith decision as it is a sustained by faith activism.

  • The vast majority of medical professionals, despite being largely pro-choice themselves, tend not to participate in abortion and distance themselves from the abortion industry. Abortionists generally are not to be part of the social medical cliques, lead medical societies or become chief of staff at hospitals. Indeed, the abortion industry is populated by physician misfits capable of little else.
  • There have been solid regulatory strides in clinic licensing, zoning, health codes, etc that make the $500 price point of abortion unprofitable. Abortions over $500 seem to be an economic tipping point.

The Bad News -

The large numbers of self-identified pro-life young people demonstrates to me how securely ingrained the abortion rights culture is in The U.S.

 Hear me out.

First, in 1973 the right to abortion was total and complete. Abortion cannot expand except to include under abortion the already born. Accordingly, the “right” to abortion can only contract or stay the same. Expansion is not a possibility it started at 100%.

For Generation Y and beyond to self-identify as “pro-life” when there is nothing personally at stake implies little. From before their conception, unrestricted legal abortion has been securely anchored in American law and American families.

Follow me here – after the rise of the Moral Majority, Jerry Falwell and the awakening of Evangelical Christianity, following the two terms of Reagan and three terms of Bushes; with Catholics holding a majority in Congress and on the Supreme Court; with four of the five highest offices in the land held by Catholics and nearly 20 years after Evangelium Vitae; abortion marches on at a consistent rate of over one million per year. With this paralyzed body politic, it is easy for the younger generations to view abortion more as a philosophical theory of culture than a matter of public policy.

Abortion as a public policy is set and in minimal to no danger.

On the public policy front, there are tons of window dressing “pro-life” politicians who regularly cast meaningless votes. Former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer and former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus, were reliably pro-life, until they were presented with legislation actually restricting abortion. Then there are Bart Stupak, Ben Nelson, Dale Kildee, Jim Oberstarand and most recently Bobby Jindal come to mind as fair weather pro-lifers; developing a more “nuanced” position when the screws get tight.

The Pro-Choice movement is the master of tightening screws; just ask the Komen Foundation – crushed by an entity 1/10th its size.

Individually over a decade ago, Frederica Mathewes-Green quoting the pro-choice Kate Michelman  said that Americans oppose abortion in all cases except three – “rape, incest and my situation”and she is correct. When an unplanned pregnancy arrives a heartless pragmatism takes hold over a million times a year – most often at the grandparent’s insistence.

Blessed John Paul II almost 20 years ago in Evangelium Vitae observed the following that is unchanged today:

…it is no less true that we are confronted by an even larger reality, which can be described as a veritable structure of sin. This reality is characterized by the emergence of a culture which denies solidarity and in many cases takes the form of a veritable ‘culture of death.’ This culture is actively fostered by powerful cultural, economic and political currents which encourage an idea of society excessively concerned with efficiency. Looking at the situation from this point of view, it is possible to speak in a certain sense of a war of the powerful against the weak: a life which would require greater acceptance, love and care is considered useless, or held to be an intolerable burden, and is therefore rejected in one way or another.                                        Evangelium Vitae 12

Am pessimistic about the future of the pro-life movement?

No, because in the end goodness will triumph.

We are not at all near the end.

We can never forget that abortion is a cultural sin and the abortion rights culture is deeply ingrained in American culture. Accordingly, more restrictions, ultrasound machines and Supreme Court decisions will not change the culture although all are necessary bricks in our wall between goodness and murder. Until children are seen as a gift and not a cross, until pregnancy is once again understood as the expected end of the sexual encounter and not some shocking side effect, and until we accept that there can be no “right” to an abortion; the culture of death will march on impeded here or there for a while but still solidly entrenched and in play.

The Pro-Life Movement will ultimately triumph because the Pro-Choice Movement is so incredibly wrong. It has no legs other than the relativistic “because I want to” mode of reasoning. From a biologic, philosophical, medical and natural perspective, one can only conclude that abortion is the unjust taking of a life. There is little theology to it. Yet theology is the most important component because only Christ can pick up the pieces of a million shattered motherhoods times a million shattered fatherhoods times a million lives whose substance is known only to him. All that times 40! And Christ, through his Church will do this until he comes again.

Despite the cover of TIME, I remain unmoved and untriumphant. I view this like a news brief from Orwell’s Ministry of Truth – a head fake in the battle for life on the eve of our largest gathering.  The fight for life remains on countless fronts – and while we have enjoyed some hard fought successes we can never forget the underlying sentiments of most of society (the three societal exceptions to abortion) are hardened and hard-wired.

All the regulations in the world will not change the hardened human heart or create a civilization of justice, peace and love.

Letter: Cuomo should not back abortion bill

Abortion has been legal in New York since 1970, and our state currently has one of the highest abortion rates in the nation, especially among minorities. Despite this sad statistic, Gov. Andrew Cuomo listened to the radical left fringe and in his State of the State address called for a misnamed “Reproductive Health Act,” that could do such things as allow non-doctors to do abortion procedures.

Governor, if you can’t find it in you to protect children in utero, at the very least, don’t make it worse for them. Please drop your support the abortion bill and focus on what you are reputed to be good at: fixing our economy.

 

ROBERT POKALSKY

PENFIELD

This letter was printed in the Democrat nad Chronicle newspaper in Rochester, NY on January 25, 2013.  Rob has been a sidewalk counselor, in front of the local Planned Parenthood at 114 University, for the last 18 years.  He taches at St. John Bosco School.

  • There have been solid regulatory strides in clinic licensing, zoning, health codes, etc that make the $500 price point of abortion unprofitable. Abortions over $500 seem to be an economic tipping point.

The Bad News -

The large numbers of self-identified pro-life young people demonstrates to me how securely ingrained the abortion rights culture is in The U.S.

 Hear me out.

First, in 1973 the right to abortion was total and complete. Abortion cannot expand except to include under abortion the already born. Accordingly, the “right” to abortion can only contract or stay the same. Expansion is not a possibility it started at 100%.

For Generation Y and beyond to self-identify as “pro-life” when there is nothing personally at stake implies little. From before their conception, unrestricted legal abortion has been securely anchored in American law and American families.

Follow me here – after the rise of the Moral Majority, Jerry Falwell and the awakening of Evangelical Christianity, following the two terms of Reagan and three terms of Bushes; with Catholics holding a majority in Congress and on the Supreme Court; with four of the five highest offices in the land held by Catholics and nearly 20 years after Evangelium Vitae; abortion marches on at a consistent rate of over one million per year. With this paralyzed body politic, it is easy for the younger generations to view abortion more as a philosophical theory of culture than a matter of public policy.

Abortion as a public policy is set and in minimal to no danger.

On the public policy front, there are tons of window dressing “pro-life” politicians who regularly cast meaningless votes. Former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer and former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus, were reliably pro-life, until they were presented with legislation actually restricting abortion. Then there are Bart Stupak, Ben Nelson, Dale Kildee, Jim Oberstarand and most recently Bobby Jindal come to mind as fair weather pro-lifers; developing a more “nuanced” position when the screws get tight.

The Pro-Choice movement is the master of tightening screws; just ask the Komen Foundation – crushed by an entity 1/10th its size.

Individually over a decade ago, Frederica Mathewes-Green quoting the pro-choice Kate Michelman  said that Americans oppose abortion in all cases except three – “rape, incest and my situation”and she is correct. When an unplanned pregnancy arrives a heartless pragmatism takes hold over a million times a year – most often at the grandparent’s insistence.

Blessed John Paul II almost 20 years ago in Evangelium Vitae observed the following that is unchanged today:

…it is no less true that we are confronted by an even larger reality, which can be described as a veritable structure of sin. This reality is characterized by the emergence of a culture which denies solidarity and in many cases takes the form of a veritable ‘culture of death.’ This culture is actively fostered by powerful cultural, economic and political currents which encourage an idea of society excessively concerned with efficiency. Looking at the situation from this point of view, it is possible to speak in a certain sense of a war of the powerful against the weak: a life which would require greater acceptance, love and care is considered useless, or held to be an intolerable burden, and is therefore rejected in one way or another.                                        Evangelium Vitae 12

Am pessimistic about the future of the pro-life movement?

No, because in the end goodness will triumph.

We are not at all near the end.

We can never forget that abortion is a cultural sin and the abortion rights culture is deeply ingrained in American culture. Accordingly, more restrictions, ultrasound machines and Supreme Court decisions will not change the culture although all are necessary bricks in our wall between goodness and murder. Until children are seen as a gift and not a cross, until pregnancy is once again understood as the expected end of the sexual encounter and not some shocking side effect, and until we accept that there can be no “right” to an abortion; the culture of death will march on impeded here or there for a while but still solidly entrenched and in play.

The Pro-Life Movement will ultimately triumph because the Pro-Choice Movement is so incredibly wrong. It has no legs other than the relativistic “because I want to” mode of reasoning. From a biologic, philosophical, medical and natural perspective, one can only conclude that abortion is the unjust taking of a life. There is little theology to it. Yet theology is the most important component because only Christ can pick up the pieces of a million shattered motherhoods times a million shattered fatherhoods times a million lives whose substance is known only to him. All that times 40! And Christ, through his Church will do this until he comes again.

Despite the cover of TIME, I remain unmoved and untriumphant. I view this like a news brief from Orwell’s Ministry of Truth – a head fake in the battle for life on the eve of our largest gathering.  The fight for life remains on countless fronts – and while we have enjoyed some hard fought successes we can never forget the underlying sentiments of most of society (the three societal exceptions to abortion) are hardened and hard-wired.

All the regulations in the world will not change the hardened human heart or create a civilization of justice, peace and love.

Letter: Cuomo should not back abortion bill

Abortion has been legal in New York since 1970, and our state currently has one of the highest abortion rates in the nation, especially among minorities. Despite this sad statistic, Gov. Andrew Cuomo listened to the radical left fringe and in his State of the State address called for a misnamed “Reproductive Health Act,” that could do such things as allow non-doctors to do abortion procedures.

Governor, if you can’t find it in you to protect children in utero, at the very least, don’t make it worse for them. Please drop your support the abortion bill and focus on what you are reputed to be good at: fixing our economy.
