Letter to the Editor

Some think that Love at First Sight is primarily between a man and a woman, but I’d argue that Love at First Sight actually happens primarily in a delivery room – when parents first see their newborn child.

18 year old Sycloria Williams was not expecting Love at First Sight back in 2006, when she went to abort her 23-week old fetus at the Hialeah Woman’s Health Center outside Miami. But when she delivered a live baby instead of a dead one, a baby that autopsy reports say had filled her lungs with air, Williams had a change of heart. I suppose it’s fair to call a fetus that was delivered and actually breathed a baby, not a fetus, but Williams simply called her daughter Shanice.

Owner Belkis Gonzalez saw this change of heart as bad for business, so he cut Shanice’s umbilical cord without clamping it, threw her in a biohazard bag, and tossed her out. I suppose it’s fair to call this murder, but the State of Florida has opted only to call this practicing medicine without a license.

Sincerely,

Jay G

I think Susan Mulrooney is practicing journalism without a license. Let's nominate her for the 2009 Walter Duranty Award for living in denial.

When you make too strong a case for life or traditional marriage, you are censored.

What is Mulrooney's justification for saying that a case of murder constitutes a "personal issue"? I'm still scratching my head over that one. Why then does the Telegram - or any newspaper for that matter - cover ANY murder? Can you explain her attitude?
