Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill protecting the unborn from abortion after 15 weeks gestation on Thursday. During his remarks, he referred to the aborted babies recently found in Washington, D.C.
“What we’re doing today is saying that we will not let that happen in the state of Florida,” the Republican politician said.
Anti-abortion activists Lauren Handy and Terrisa Bukovinac of Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) first told reporters on April 5 that they obtained 115 aborted babies from a driver for a medical waste company outside a D.C. abortion clinic, Washington Surgi-Clinic, with the intention of giving the unborn children a dignified funeral and burial.
Five of the babies, who appear to be of late-term gestation, were located by the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) on March 30. PAAU says it arranged for the D.C. police to collect and examine the babies, fearing that the babies’ injuries could be evidence of illegal abortions.
