Clinic worker charged in abortion birth
by UPI

HIALEAH, Fla. - A worker at a Florida clinic faces up to 15 years in prison in connection with the death of an aborted fetus that was born alive at 21 weeks.

Prosecutors in Hialeah have decided not to charge the clinic's owner with manslaughter, but worker Belkis Gonzalez has been arrested on suspicion of tampering with evidence and practicing healthcare without a license, the Miami Herald reported Wednesday.

The infant's mother, Sycloria Williams, 18, told Hialeah detectives that she saw her "infant moving, making noises for approximately five minutes" after she unexpectedly gave birth at AGYN Diagnostic Center.

"Ms. Gonzalez came into the room, cut the umbilical cord, swept the infant into a trash can with a red bag along with the gauze used during the procedure, and took the bag out of the room," the arrest warrant says.

Last month, the state revoked the license of Dr. Pierre Renelique, the clinic doctor who was to have performed the abortion, for improperly delegating his duties.
