FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, October 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- 27 months after she was killed, Shanice Osbourne will be given a proper burial in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Shanice, a kicking, crying baby of 23 weeks gestation, survived her intended abortion only to be disposed of in a biohazard bag filled with bleach. Police found her body nine days later in a closet. All of this occurred in July 2006 at a South Florida abortion facility in Miramar that has been shut down twice for other reasons.
Shanice is an example of the type of babies that Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic Candidate for President, has fought against giving any type of legal personhood status. Obama seems to have no problem with children like Shanice being killed or left alone to die. As a state senator in Illinois, he directly opposed legislative efforts to prevent such a death.
Former Ambassador Alan Keyes will be among the speakers at the burial service, which is open to the public and the media. It will be held this Tuesday (October 14) at 10:30 AM at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Cemetery, 1400 S. State Road 7 (Rt. 441), North Lauderdale, FL 33068.
Faith2Action Founder and President Janet (Folger) Porter was asked to participate, but will be unable to on account of prior out-of-state commitments.
