Mortuary apologizes after giving fetal remains to Catholic cemetery

.- A Colorado hospital will now ask its female patients where they want fetal remains to be buried, after a miscarriage, stillbirth or abortion. Avista Adventist Hospital has taken on this new policy after learning that Crist Mortuary in Boulder was sending fetal remains, which they had received from the hospital for cremation, to a Catholic cemetery.

The mortuary apologized to the hospital this week, which was unaware of the practice.

News that the mortuary was sending the ashes to Sacred Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Boulder for almost a decade to be part of a Catholic memorial dedicated to aborted children, caused outrage among pro-abortion groups.

The mortuary also returned the ashes of several hundred fetuses to the Boulder Abortion Clinic, which asked for them back after hearing the news.
