    It is hard to imagine any human being killing and discarding babies into the trash. Wghat a gruesome way to make a living! Please pray for mercy for the souls of the mothers and fathers of these children and for the souls of those who desecrated their little bodies. God bless this Bishop and those around him who care enough to provide these little children with a respectful and reverent burial.
