Pregnant woman stabbed to death in S. Ozone Park

Eyewitness News

SOUTH OZONE PARK -- Police are investigating the death of a 25-year-old woman with apparent stab wounds in South Ozone Park, Queens, Saturday.

Law enforcement officials say the woman was pregnant and was murdered on her due date.

The victim has been identified as Niasha Delain.

Police were called to the scene just after 7:30 p.m., after neighbors heard someone yelling for help.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said the woman was found with multiple stab wounds, her fetus dead.

"She has her neck cut and has a laceration on her stomach," he said.

Brown says its too early to say exactly what led to the gruesome stabbing, but he says the woman moved into the aprtment about a week ago and was discovered dead by her mother and boyfriend.

Neighbors say the victim seemed happy and friendly. They say she was often seen at the minimart below her apartment.

There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.


This is one of the most horrific crimes in the borough this year.

It's too bad the NYS Assembly still hasn't passed the Unborn Victims of Violence bill that has been languishing in the chamber since being passed by the Senate in 2003.

It's Lefferts Blvd. Daily News can't even get that right anymore.
When I was a teen in the 1960's I worked in that corner store. I am very sad to see what has become of my old neighborhood and Queens in general through the years. God help us all.

Re the proposed legislation: You achieve legal "personhood" at birth NOT at conception.

Will Senator Maltese, the sponsor of the bill in the NY Senate, permit a gestating fetus to be written off as a dependent on a woman's NY State Income Tax return?

"Niasha" sounds like the fetus was a girl and the father did it.

Abortion supporters "fear" that any reduction or control over abortions will interfere with the "reproductive rights" of the woman.

Well, what about the reproductive rights of the aborted child, either MALE or female?

What would happen, if starting now, and continuing until the end of time, throughout the world, ALL pregnancies ended in abortion?

Would that have any effect on the reproductive rights of the aborted children?

All right, now all you ferocious unlimited, unfettered abortion supporters, time to find me and deprive ME of my reproductive rights. Perhaps, my right to breathe. Killing the obstruction to your happiness is what you do best.

And, let's face it, the most vociferous abortion pushers are males, aged 18 to 40. The abortion victims - apart from the children tossed into the garbage - are the woman who have these abortions to please their dominant male impregnator. The guy is off the hook, scott-free - and likely to dump the woman who listened to him.

Males are so intent on abandoning their responsibilities toward the pregnant mother or her unborn child, they frequently kill their woman who refuses to abort.

My bet here? I'm betting that her boyfriend/husband/lover murdered her for refusing to kill the child and she probably had the impudent audacity to tell the guy that he had better stick around to support them - say, oh, just let's say, as a responsible father.

Government should not dictate what women do with their bodies.

I don't know what you're getting at.

Probably true. But why bring more unwanted children into the world. Are there not enough? The life that unaborted fetus once born would have at the hands of abusive, bitter parents would be worse.

"Males are so intent on abandoning their responsibilities toward the pregnant mother or her unborn child, they frequently kill their woman who refuses to abort."

Yes, but why would he have chosen to kill the mother and baby 9 months into the pregnancy?

I'm neither a supporter or opponent either way regarding abortion. To me it is a non-issue compared to more pressing matters in our society, and it has somehow ballooned into a giant political football in the lastthirty years.
Regardles, I always felt this whole "women's right to do with her body" argument was was such a weak point for the pro-abortion argument. It really isn't the woman's body that is in debate, it is the body inside the woman that everyone is focused on. If a woman, or a man for that matter wants to do something to their body, then go right ahead. But there needs to be some responsibility and common sense on both parts, before you engage in activity that might plant seeds into fertile land. Maybe then, we can move on to more pressing matters.

This has a lot less to do with abortion and a lot more to do with something a little closer to home.

There has been a long standing conspiracy theory that the "Son of Sam" did not act alone in his murderous run that was the late seventies.
With a little investigation of your own it is easy to see that the so called "theory" is the fact and the rushed police work of that day was the theory.

The holiest day of the satanic calender is fast approaching (Halloween) and the holiest of sects actually do perfom sacrifice's although its not like in the movies but more like what happened in Ozone Park the other night.
Dont take my word for it - look up the investigative writer Maury Terry and the former Queens DA's during that period and the period after as well as every esteemed investigator who retraced the case after the fact and they all agree that not only did Sam Berkowitz not act alone but part of a much larger national, perhaps even international sect that has a significant group of followers in southwestern Queens.

Again, please dont take my word for it, do your own research. Please dont call me a nut until then.
Thanks,

"Government should not dictate what women do with their bodies."

TP:
I agree 100%. But, government does, and must dictate what any one person does to the body of some other person. And, in fact, government does dictate what any one person does to their own bodies: try cutting off your own arm, or leg. Try performing self-surgery. Try smoking, or getting obese, or consuming trans-fats.

As for my question:
"What would happen, if starting now, and continuing until the end of time, throughout the world, ALL pregnancies ended in abortion?"

The answer is: no more humans. Many people haters cheer this on. Some genocidal maniacs want to abort ALL children to be born to _____. (fill in the blank with the name of some "undesirable" group).

So, the reproductive rights off ALL the aborted children would vanish - along with the human race.

TP:
An "unaborted fetus" once born, is called a child. We don't have to adopt the cold, indifferent terminology of the abortion industry. Their terminology, to me, reflects a depraved indifference to human life.

The phrase "unwanted children" is a male phrase, propagated by politicians and the opinion movers. Nobody has EVER tested the accuracy of the phrase. There are alternatives to abortion (for those with the civilized and moral upbringing). Adoption. Parenting classes. Teaching parenting from childhood forward. The same people who promote abortion, also loudly promote sex education from pre-K forward. Why not teach the same ages, with the same passion, how parenting operates?

If youngsters are to be taught from an early age to fear and avoid pregnancy, why not teach the same youngsters how to take control of their own lives and function as responsible adults. In today's super-secular society, I agree that to accomplish this would require turning assumption upside down for the sake of civilized responsible society.

TP:
Because she had the impudent audacity to want to user her God-given free will to keep, love and raise the child in defiance of his control-freak demands during the entirety of her pregnancy. In a guilty rage, (his impotence was exposed), he rid himself of the sight of her. Can't have that! Can we Machos?

Italian Girl,

This likely didn't convert you, but, your questions were serious and sincere - and, above all, CIVILIZED.

How refreshing to have an honest dialog, without any vilification.

It may not be all that apparent to you or other readers, that I am absolutely and passionately opposed to abortion. I consider it to be premeditated murder, and I believe that the abortion provider, including the doctor and nurses and staff (and all the supporters - political and otherwise) need to be handled as first degree murderers.

I honestly believe that the promoters and supporters and enablers have an agenda that has nothing at all to do with any woman's reproductive rights. The promoters are no different from the pimps and pornographers who whisper sweet nothings into their women's ears to work their will on them to suit the pimp and pornographers' agenda.

It is rare that a woman manipulates a man and dumps him. The man is more likely to manipulate and dump any number of women.

Anyway, it was a joy having this back-and-forth. You are clearly a very nice person.

And, since you've visited QC for some time, you know that I'm usually quite harsh.

A: I'm ALWAYS harsh on the political jerks;
B: And I just as harsh on the stupids who support them as though they were celebrity-gods;
C: and I have no use for the villifier jerks.

I happen to think I had a moral and civilized upbringing. Here was my problem: Had I gotten pregnant at age 16, I could never set foot in my parent's house again. And at that age that was a scary prospect. My father was and still is pretty rough. My position now is having grown older that people should do everything in their power to avoid pregnancy. But unfortunately they don't. That's why I mentioned unwanted children. I work in a very bad area in Brooklyn and see the effects of bad parenting every day. Since I am no longer a teenager, the only reason in my life to have an abortion is if I was told I have a handicapped fetus. I happen to have a background in that area as well. My mother's only sister was mentally handicapped and it was a very hard life for her family. I don't think I'd be the right mom for a special needs child.

"If youngsters are to be taught from an early age to fear and avoid pregnancy, why not teach the same youngsters how to take control of their own lives and function as responsible adults. In today's super-secular society, I agree that to accomplish this would require turning assumption upside down for the sake of civilized responsible society."

But youngsters will follow their hormones and begin humping anything in sight when given the opportunity. How in the world do 13or 14 year olds get pregnant? Where are their parents? My mom knew exactly where I was, at all times at that age. By the time I grew older, I knew pregnancy would have destroyed my life and ruined my future. That fear can be paralyzing. A fetus, especially if you've never had kids, can be disposable, in your mind.

"Italian Girl,

Well thank you. Yes, you didn't convert me. But I do think that partial-birth abortions should be outlawed.

"It may not be all that apparent to you or other readers, that I am absolutely and passionately opposed to abortion. I consider it to be premeditated murder, and I believe that the abortion provider, including the doctor and nurses and staff (and all the supporters - political and otherwise) need to be handled as first degree murderers."

Yes, but the demand for an abortion will ALWAYS be there. Women would resort to dangerous methods to get the deed done.

"It is rare that a woman manipulates a man and dumps him. The man is more likely to manipulate and dump any number of women."

I don't agree with that. I don't mean to sound like a bitch, but I've been known to manipulate/dump a guy or two myself. Both genders are guilty in that regard.

"Anyway, it was a joy having this back-and-forth. You are clearly a very nice person."

A fetus at this age most certainly would have survived without his/her mother if it were taken from the body in time. And this clearly was a wanted child. Whoever did this should be charged with murder twice just like Scott Peterson was.

I LIVE UP THE BLOCK FROM THE MINIMART AND FREQUENTLY GO TO THE STORE ACROSS THE STREET. I HAVE ALWAYS FOUND THIS AREA TO BE COMFORTING. IT IS A SCARY THOUGHT THAT ONE CANNOT EVEN BE SAFE IN THEIR OWN HOME ANYMORE. MY PRAYERS AND CONDOLENCES GO OUT TO THE FAMILY. MAY GOD REST HER AND HER BABY'S SOULS.

As the mother of 3 children, I have posed the same question to others.

And Taxpayer, I really do not believe anyone is an "Abortion Supporter". That's just manipulative right wing rhetoric. Same thing with the term "partial birth abortions."

You can defend a woman's right to choose without being a staunch supporter of abortion. Hear that Republicans? You want "small gov't" but not when it comes to my uterus, huh?
