India: corpses of aborted girls are fed to dogs

Catholic World News - May 25, 2012

The remains of female abortion victims are being fed to dogs in one Indian city in order to hide evidence that illegal sex-selection abortions are taking place, according to Indian press reports.

In Beed, a city of 160,000 in western India, there are 801 female births for every 1,000 male births.

    Divine judgment will come in this extreme case..., God will not tolerate this... we should watch if for no other reason than to see that His judgment is real. JP

    And here in the United States the remains of those precious little children are dumped in the trash or sewer or money made selling their descecrated little bodies. Pray today - now - to end abortion.

    Shocking indeed, but can it really be a surprise? The local Planned Parenthood here in the USA has an outside "service" that picks up such remains, but then what? Parts to be burned, sold? Ghastly business. God have mercy on us.
