October 28, 2020 (Live Action News) — A woman in Queens, New York, has been arrested for attempted murder after she threw her newborn son out of her bathroom window, just moments after he was born.
The baby boy was discovered on the morning of Sunday, October 18, by a neighbor who had heard whimpering and went to investigate. She found the baby boy naked with his umbilical cord still attached, lying on the ground next to the garbage area for the building.
She called police, who found blood on the ground, on the wall leading up to the first floor bathroom window, and on the window sill. The baby was taken to a local hospital and was placed on a ventilator before being transferred to Cohen Children’s Medical Center. According to the New York Post, doctors said he suffered hypothermia, a traumatic brain injury with bleeding and swelling on the brain and scalp as well as an abdominal injury with internal bleeding. He is in stable but critical condition.
According to NBC 4, when questioned by police, 23-year old Sabita Dookram said, “I gave birth yesterday afternoon. I cut the cord with a scissor from the bathroom. I panicked and threw it out of the bathroom window. I did not check on the baby, I put my clothes in the laundry hamper in the bathroom, I showered and went to sleep.” She had allegedly given birth in the bathtub.
Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz announced on Tuesday that Dookram has been charged with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment, tampering with physical evidence, abandonment of a child, and acting in a manner to injure a child. She received a psychiatric evaluation at Jamaica Hospital.
“This is a heartbreaking situation. A newborn baby has suffered greatly because of the alleged actions of his mother, who now faces serious charges and a lengthy prison sentence,” Katz said in a statement.
PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):
With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.
We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):
In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.
Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.
In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”
We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.
PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):
Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history. Sign this petition TODAY! (LEARN MORE BELOW)
PETITION UPDATE (1/3/2020):
In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.
Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.
Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.
More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred.
It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it.
Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved.
However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.
We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.
Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.
Roe v. Wade must come to an end!
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
While Dookram is facing attempted murder charges for this act, abortion is legal in New York, which codified Roe v. Wade into law with its Reproductive Health Act in January 2019. Because of this, the RHA — despite fact checks claiming the contrary — allows for abortion up to birth, thanks to the language contained in Roe‘s partner decision, Doe v. Bolton, which allows for abortion throughout nine months for any reason, including financial, mental, or familial.
Killing a child before birth is no different than killing a child after birth. A human being’s size, level of development, environment, and level of dependency do not determine their value. Every human being is equal from the moment of fertilization until natural death.
