Mother and Daughter Charged With Felonies After Illegal Abortion May Not Be the Great Example the Pro-Aborts Think It Is – Opinion

Since the US Supreme Court demolished the fake science and constitutional law underpinning the abortion industry, Molochites have been searching for cases to illustrate various fantasies about how not being able to butcher your own baby removes women’s autonomy and makes their lives dangerous.

A few weeks ago, we saw the trial run of the “rape and incest” exception. In this episode, we were told that a pregnant ten-year-old was forced to flee Ohio for Indiana to obtain an abortion (see Reporting on 10-Year-Old’s Abortion Tale Without Committing Journalism). This despite Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost issuing an “explainer” on how Ohio’s law would have permitted this girl to have an abortion.

The Molochites also want to promote other narratives, such as women being held in prison for having an unplanned pregnancy and women using social media to detain those who have. They believe they are their twofer in Nebraska.

After authorities obtained her messages on Facebook using a warrant, authorities in Nebraska are facing criminal charges for allegedly aborting a fetus. Celeste Burgess is seven years old and is being held in Madison County District Court. She is accused of breaking a Nebraska ban on abortions occurring after twenty weeks.

This marks one of the first instances of a person’s Facebook activity being used to incriminate her in a state where abortion access is restricted — a scenario that has remained largely hypothetical in the weeks following the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Nebraska does not allow abortions past 20 weeks. Republican legislators in Nebraska will be making Monday’s announcement. We were unable to get enough votes to decrease that window to 12 weeks.

Before we go any further, let’s recap Nebraska’s current abortion law. This is the Guttmacher Institute’s pro-abort Guttmacher Institute description.

These restrictions were in force in Nebraska as of June 28, 20,22.

  • The state must provide counseling to the patient, which includes information that discourages the patient from having an unplanned pregnancy. After this 24 hour wait, the procedure can be performed.
  • Private policies do not cover abortion in the event of death.
  • Health plans offered in the state’s health exchange under the Affordable Care Act can only cover abortion in cases of life endangerment.
  • Public employees’ insurance does not cover abortion unless there is a life-endangering event. Individuals can purchase optional riders at an extra cost.
  • It is against the law to use telemedicine for abortion medication.
  • Before an abortion can be performed, the parent must agree.
  • Abortion is only possible in the case of incest, life endangerment or rape.
  • A woman may have an abortion at any time after 20 weeks (22 weeks following the last period), except in extreme cases or when life is being endangered or seriously compromised. It is based on the claim that a pregnant woman can feel pain at any point during pregnancy. However, this assertion has not been supported by scientific evidence.
  • It is mandatory that abortion clinics adhere to all applicable standards in relation to staffing, plant and equipment.
  • It is against the law to use a second-trimester abortion method that is safe and effective. Evacuation and dilation are only permitted in extreme cases.

It is more complex. The Lincoln Journal Star has the following story.

A Norfolk woman is facing five criminal charges — including three felonies — alleging she helped her teenage daughter abort, burn and bury her fetus earlier this year.

Jessica Burgess (41), pleaded not guilty to the charges and awaits trial at Madison County District Court. Her then-17-year-old daughter Celeste Burgess — who is being tried as an adult — also pleaded not guilty to three charges, including a felony.

An investigation was launched by a Norfolk police officer in April to investigate a tip about Celeste Burgess having miscarried. The body had been buried by her mother, according to a search warrant.

The detective obtained her medical records, and determined she’d been more than 23 weeks — or nearly six months — pregnant at the time, and was expected to deliver July 3.

If [the detective]Interviewing them later on, they revealed to him that Celeste Burgess, a shower hoste, had given birth unexpectedly, Court Records show.

On April 29, they showed the detective where — on a property owned by the man’s parents. Investigators were told by the father that his daughter and mother had attempted to set fire to the body, but it wasn’t burned. And when authorities exhumed it, it showed signs of what the detective called “thermal wounds.”

But the investigation wasn’t over. One week after they were arrested, the detective executed a search warrant for Facebook to access their accounts.

He discovered messages that indicated Jessica Burgess was using abortion pills to give her instructions.

“C. Burgess talks about how she can’t wait to get the ‘thing’ out of her body and reaffirms with J. Burgess that they will burn the evidence afterward,” the detective wrote.

A month later, Madison County Attorney Joseph Smith added two more felonies to the charges against Jessica Burgess — for performing or attempting an abortion on a pregnancy at more than 20 weeks, and performing an abortion as a non-licensed doctor.

Let’s review the bidding. With some exceptions made for the safety and well-being of the mother, Nebraska has banned abortion after 20 weeks. A physician must perform abortions in Nebraska.

This case involved a 22-week-old baby. This abortion took place without the assistance of a doctor. Both the mother and her daughter knew the limitations and shared their concerns via social media. They had apparently never seen The Wire.

The mother and daughter and a male attempted to burn the baby’s body, and when that failed, they buried it. The incident was brought to our attention by a witness. Police officers were able to verify the lies of both mother and daughter. He began to suspect that both the mother and daughter had lied to him. Facebook evidence was subpoenaed by him and he found proof that the baby was more than 20 weeks old. Both women knew this.

If the pro-aborts want to ride this particular hobby horse, I’m okay with them doing so. The image of a woman attempting to burn her illegally aborted, viable baby is not something I’d care to defend, but I never cared to defend infanticide in the first place.
