Police on Wednesday found the remains of at least five aborted fetuses at the Washington, D.C. home of activist Lauren Handy, who is affiliated with the group Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising, a secular organization that demonstrates against abortion.
Though it is not immediately clear who has legal responsibility for the remains, PAAU says a member of their group “privately arranged” for police to pick up the remains for “forensic examination,” fearing that the babies were aborted illegally.
Metropolitan police said they searched the home March 30 following a tip on potential “biohazard material.” The unborn children, who police said were “aborted in accordance with D.C. law,” were collected by Washington’s medical examiner and the investigation into how the remains ended up in the apartment is ongoing, police said.
PAAU is a relatively new group created and led by Terrisa Bukovinac, the founder and president of Pro-Life San Francisco and former president of Democrats For Life.
