Live Action Demands Immediate Autopsies for Bodies Recovered from Washington D.C. Abortion Facility
Pro-life Org offers to pay for a proper autopsy to determine cause of death
Washington, D.C. – Lila Rose, Founder and President of Live Action, released the following statement regarding the District of Columbia’s decision not to conduct autopsies or further investigate the circumstances of the death of the five children discovered outside a Washington D.C. abortion clinic:
“The Washington DC police department and the District’s medical examiner must conduct a thorough forensic medical examination of five dead children discovered outside a DC abortion clinic, to determine their manner of death. Anything less is a dereliction of their duty. Conducting autopsies for these children is the absolute minimum required to ensure that federal and state laws were not violated in their deaths.
Live Action will pay every cent of the cost for an independent neonatal pathologist to do the job if the DC Chief Medical Examiner refuses to examine the bodies of these children. Our experts indicate that a federal crime violating the Born Alive Infant Protection Act or the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act may have been committed upon some of these children. We will settle for nothing less than complete justice for the five.”
