A pro-life group is calling for the Washington D.C. medical examiner to perform autopsies on five aborted babies whose bodies police recovered from an apartment last week, citing medical professionals’ opinions that the babies may have been killed outside the womb, in violation of federal laws.
Live Action, a group known for its undercover investigations of abortion clinics, shared an article, posted on its liveaction.org website, which included graphic images of five aborted babies and opinions from medical professionals on their gestational ages and manner of death.
The medical professionals Live Action interviewed included Kathi Aultman, a board certified OBGYN who formerly performed abortions before becoming pro-life. By her assessment, at least two of the five babies likely were partially or fully born when they were killed, which is prohibited by a pair of federal laws, the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 and the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002.
Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), a secular group that demonstrates against abortion, say they obtained the babies' remains from a medical waste company. PAAU has pledged a full explanation of how and why they came into possession of the remains at a press conference scheduled for 11 a.m. ET on April 5.
