Grandfather of aborted baby wants remains in order to provide grandson with Christian burial

.- The father of a handicapped young woman who underwent an abortion several days ago in the Argentinean city of Entre Rios is requesting custody of the aborted baby in order to provide him a Christian burial.
 
Attorney Mario Martinez, who represents the grandfather, told Canal Once television that the grandfather wants “to request the body of the baby because he wants him to have a Christian burial and not become an object that is discarded and thrown away. He is a person who has had a life and died an unjust and unworthy death, and therefore his grandfather wishes to bury him.”

Martinez has requested reports from the Ministry of Health and from regional officials in order to file a lawsuit in court.

He also commented on the release of the only suspect thus far in the rape of the young woman. A DNA test proved the suspect in question was not responsible for the crime. Martinez said he hoped police would find the man responsible for the rape and would bring him to justice.

“The pain is even greater because the unborn child, who together with the young woman was innocent, was prevented from being born,” Martinez stated.
