Congress Urges D.C. Mayor to Conduct Autopsies for Five Aborted Children
Live Action calls on the public to demand D.C. Mayor complete a thorough investigation.
Washington, D.C. – Today, twenty-three members of congress from both the House of Representatives and the Senate sent a letter to the Mayor of the District of Columbia and the city’s chief of police demanding a full investigation into the deaths of the five children, as documented by Live Action. In support of these legislators, Live Action is mobilizing its vast network of almost 6 million social media followers, to ensure the Mayor of D.C. understands how important this matter is to the American people.
Lila Rose, Founder and President of Live Action, said, “Live Action stands with these members of Congress in firm solidarity. We will accept nothing less than justice for the five children who medical experts think may have been victims of illegal partial-birth abortion, or even born alive and then killed. Since Washington is a federal district under the oversight of Congress, the Mayor of D.C. has an obligation to answer the questions posed by this letter promptly and honestly. Autopsies must be performed. And a second, independent autopsy must also be allowed. Full and fair investigations must be conducted into the abortionist responsible for the savage acts against these innocent children. And finally, the bodies of these children should be properly buried with respect and dignity. We are grateful for this leadership from these members of Congress.”
Rose is outraged with the District of Columbia’s decision not to conduct autopsies, or to further investigate the deaths of the five children discovered outside a Washington D.C. abortion facility.
“We’re urging those who believe in equal protection under the law to stand alongside members of Congress and demand justice by calling the mayor’s office and asking that the DC Medical Examiner conduct autopsies on the babies in their possession. The number is (202) 727-2643.
Medical experts who have viewed the horrific photos of the children indicate that a federal crime violating the Born Alive Infant Protection Act or the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act may have been committed, and the public has the right to know what happened. Each of these children who were brutally killed were human beings of infinite worth and potential. America must not look away. Instead, let us allow the horror of abortion to break our hearts and spur us to action. We will not rest until justice is served and until every child is protected.”
