Philadelphia archdiocese sets aside burial space for abortionist’s victims

Catholic World News - February 07, 2011

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has set aside burial space for the hundreds of victims of notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell. The bodies of the children, who were born alive, killed, and then stored in jars in the abortionist’s office, are currently being kept by civil authorities as evidence.

“Every effort will be made to identify the babies as individuals and bury them that way,” said Auxiliary Bishop John McIntyre. “If we can move peoples’ hearts through this story to see the true sacredness of all human life, then we can say that these infants did not die in vain.”

    God bless the bishop and this diocese for doing this.

    The pain suffered by these babies tortured first in the womb by the abortion procedures and then murdered with scissors while alive after their births...every human being should be working to make sure these atrocities will never happen again. May our Lord have mercy on the souls of everyone involved in this incident and of everyone who has been a part of making abortion 'legal'. The horror has been laid before us for all the world to see.
