The remains of five late-term aborted babies in Washington, D.C., will not be receiving an autopsy that could have determined if federal law was violated by the abortion clinic responsible for their deaths, a pro-life group announced Monday.
“BREAKING: EMERGENCY ACTION NEEDED! The DC Medical Examiner has informed our attorneys that the DOJ has instructed them to destroy the remains of the #DC5. But these babies are evidence of federal crimes! Call your Reps NOW and demand #JusticeForTheFive!” a Feb. 5 social media post on X said.
The secular pro-life group Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) originally obtained the remains of the aborted babies in March 2022. The pro-life group says it acquired the remains from the Washington Surgi-Clinic run by Dr. Cesare Santangelo, an OB-GYN and well-known abortionist in the city.
The group, along with dozens of federal lawmakers and pro-life activists, has called for an investigation and autopsy to determine if the babies were killed in violation of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. The federal law prohibits abortion after the child is partially born.
