Five people are under arrest in Dallas after police discovered that they severely beat a pregnant teenager in order to cause her to abort her baby. If you do not think that the spirit of abortion causes a total lack of respect for human life, this story will likely change your mind.
The incident reportedly happened in 2013, after a 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by a relative and became pregnant. The story from WFAA, the ABC affiliate in Dallas, provides more disturbing details:
Those arrested for the beating were cousins of the teenager. They learned the girl was pregnant after she was sexually assaulted by a relative and wanted to get rid of the baby, so they allegedly beat the girl until she aborted.
According to a court documents, family members first tried to give her multiple doses of birth control pills; then “Plan B” pills; and cinnamon tablets by suspect Sharon Jones, 45. When that didn’t work, Jones “allegedly collaborated with suspects Cecila McDonald, Lonnell McDonald and Cedric Jones to physically assault the girl to terminate her pregnancy,” according to court documents. The girl told police that Cecila McDonald, 25, pinned the girl’s “arms down to the floor as Accomplice Lonnell McDonald sat on the complaint’s stomach and began repeatedly bouncing up and down. Accomplice Sharon Jones called suspect Cedric Jones Jr. and told him to come over to the house.” Lonnell McDonald, 27, then allegedly told Jones when he arrived that “he had already been kicking the “s*** out of the b****.”
The girl then began “throwing up and having severe cramps,” the affidavit said, adding these gruesome details: “She was uncontrollably pushing and delivered what she believed was a stillborn baby … Accomplice Cecila McDonald entered the bathroom and placed the baby in a white plastic mop bucket and removed it from the room. At some point after the assault, the baby was placed in a short, pill-shaped, black metal charcoal grill and attempted to burn it. Accomplice Sharon Jones contacted suspect Cedric Jones Jr. approximately two days later and offered to pay him $25 if he would take care of the rest of it. Suspect Cedric Jones Jr. placed the remains in a dark green plastic bag with a red drawstring, placed it in his trunk, and stashed the remains in an unknown location.”
The suspects have all been charged with engaging in criminal activity because it enhances the charge from an aggravated assault. The fifth relative was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. The victim is currently in the custody of Child Protective Services. Police praised the girl for her bravery in coming forward to report the crime in a news conference Wednesday. Dallas police spokesman Gil Garza said they are still gathering evidence in the case and they are still searching for the remains of the stillborn baby.
Even more disturbing, there is a chance that the suspects could avoid charges directly related to the assault on the unborn baby. Since the unborn child is not considered a person, the suspects could only face charges on their actions after it was born, specifically, the treatment of the remains. Gee, thanks, abortion supporters, for ensuring that this black life didn’t matter.
