A Texas teenager is charged with repeatedly stabbing her newborn baby just minutes after the baby was born. News of this horrible case of infanticide comes as Democrats yesterday blocked a bill to stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions for a shocking 34th time.
According to news reports in Texas, a seventeen-year-old girl repeatedly stabbed her newborn baby just minutes after the child was born and then dumped a baby’s body at a neighbor’s home and went back to sleep.
Erica Gomez now faces capital murder charges in relation to the killing which took place on February 9th. According to court documents, Gomez has admitted to giving birth to the baby, wraping the child in a bathrobe and abandoning the baby.
Here’s more on this terrible case out of El Paso, Texas:
“I cannot understand what she was thinking or feeling,” said Erica Martinez, who told KFOX she was Gomez’s confirmation teacher.
According to court documents, Gomez admitted to giving birth in her bathroom, wrapping the baby in a bathrobe, and putting it in a shed at her neighbor’s house. She then went back inside her home and fell asleep.
Gomez didn’t tell anyone because she was scared, according to police.
While she was sleeping, Gomez’s mother noticed she was bleeding and took her to the hospital. Doctors at the hospital told Gomez she had a miscarriage.
The newborn’s body was eventually found by a 13-year-old neighbor who entered his shed and made the grisly discovery. Police determined the baby had been left in the shed for 12 hours, from the time of birth until the boy found it.
“It really upsets me, children shouldn’t be abused,” said Thomas Moreno, who lives on the street where the incident happened.
The baby had been stabbed nine times – three times on the neck, once on the side and five times in the back. Forensic Examiner Doctor Janice Diaz determined the death was a homicide.
Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats continue to refuse a request to allow a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, legislation that would stop infanticide and provide medical care and treatment for babies who survive abortions.
House Democrats refused a vote on the bill for the 34th time — reading the same statement they have read the previous 33 occasions that claims there is no bipartisan agreement to bring the bill up for a vote. Despite the claim, Republican leaders have repeatedly asked Pelosi and top Democrats to reach an agreement for the bill to receive a vote.
