MUSKEGON, MI, January 16, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – It might seem that nothing good could come from Dr. Robert Alexander's recently shuttered abortion clinic, with its rotting ceiling tiles and sinks dripping blood. But a story has emerged about one woman who, thanks to Dr. Alexander's shoddy medical practice, now has a treasure she never intended to have: her son, Jeremiah McCloud.

Sheria McCloud walked into Women's Medical Services in Muskegon in the spring of 2009 intending to abort her third child. When she left – woozy and disoriented from the drugs the abortionist administered – she thought her child-bearing days were behind her.

Was she in for a surprise.

A month later, she discovered she was still pregnant – 31-weeks pregnant – with a baby boy. Shock and panic overtook her.

"I wasn't prepared to have no baby,” McCloud told Target 8 TV. “I didn't have nothing for him."

Michigan's Bureau of Health Professions found Dr. Alexander “grossly negligent” in the case. McCloud, who had two previous high-risk pregnancies, could have died from his care.

But she did not die, and instead her son would live. On July 17, 2009, Jeremiah came into the world by c-section.

The local television station, which discovered McCloud's case through documents in the Muskegon County Circuit Court, reports that the child, now 3, rides a bicycle around their apartment.

And McCloud seems happy to have a third living child.

"I look at my child. I love my child,” she said. “He's a baby that I wasn't really expecting to have, but I love my baby.”

But not all such stories from Dr. Alexander's clinic have happy endings. In another case in 2008, court documents state the abortionstperformed an abortion on a woman. Hours later, she was taken to the hospital where doctors realized she was still pregnant. Soon thereafter she gave birth to a stillborn child.

Alexander has a long history of trouble with the law. Most notably, Alexander served time in prison in the late 1980s after he was convicted on 12 of 15 counts brought against him related to the illegal distribution of controlled substances.
