Police today praised Amanda Berry, now 26, (pictured left in hospital with her sister and the six-year-old daughter she had while in the home) for escaping the house. Amanda, who went missing when she was 16 in April 2003, ran to a neighbor's home and made a desperate emergency call to police, declaring: 'I'm Amanda Berry. I've been on the news for the last 10 years... I'm free now.'
"When Mr Ramsey helped Amanda out of the house, she was holding a young child..."
"Amanda, now 26, escaped from the basement of a Cleveland home on Monday night with Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michele Knight, 32, who all disappeared from the same block ten years ago.
"They were found with a six-year-old girl, who relatives confirmed Amanda gave birth to while held against her will at the home for a decade."
The gods have favored Hillary Clinton yet again. Her fatal incompetence in Benghazi with her subsequent coverup was setting to be the news story of this week. But late yesterday all news attention was turned to Cleveland, Ohio. There, 3 young women presumed dead for a decade and more were found alive having been held prisoners (sex slaves?) in the basement of a former school bus driver's home. One of the young women, Amanda Berry, gave birth to a daughter during her imprisonment.
Amanda's child is a product of rape.
As Amanda's actions demonstrate, despite the rape and who knows what else tortue and abuse she has endured, Amanda loves her daughter. The girl was in Amanda's arms when she fled the house. Amanda has her arm around her daughter in the hospital bed. Amanda is a devoted mother.
This past April, the longtime Chicago Sun-Times film critic, Roger Ebert died. About a month before he passed away Roger wrote a column about himself. Many of his fans were surprised, confused and even dismayed when they read this :
"My choice is to not support abortion, except in cases of a clear-cut choice between the lives of the mother and child.
"A child conceived through incest or rape is innocent and deserves the right to be born."
