DC Mayor Skirts Responsibility to Investigate Infant Deaths
Bowser’s non-response to members of Congress shows her disregard for human life.
Washington, D.C. – Mayor Muriel Bowser spent her Friday afternoon dismissing this letter from members of Congress sent earlier this week urging the District of Columbia to conduct autopsies on the five infant bodies found in Washington, D.C.
Lila Rose, Founder and President of Live Action released the following comment as a response to Mayor Bowser’s letter on Twitter:
“BREAKING: @MayorBowser’s non-response to the demand letter from Congress about the deaths of 5 infants points to obstruction of justice and utter disregard for the rule of law. According to expert medical analysis, the children’s mangled bodies show evidence of federal crimes.
Mayor Bowser has gone to war against justice. Mayor Bowser says that the deaths of five fully-formed infants, their naked bodies stuffed like trash in medical waste buckets, are not worth investigating.
These deaths must be investigated.”
Leading up to this development, the following has occurred:
- Last week, five children who medical experts say may have been viable, were discovered by pro-life activists outside Cesare Santangelo’s Washington- Surgi Clinic. The children’s bodies were in a box being loaded onto a Curtis Bay Medical Waste truck when the driver, upon learning that the boxes may contain the remains of fetuses, gave the boxes to the pro-life activists.
- Nearly a dozen physicians have looked at photos and videos of these children, and several have concluded the following: One intact baby boy may have been nearly full-term, and possibly a victim of infanticide. An autopsy is necessary to determine how he was killed. One baby girl, between 28-30 weeks, had injuries consistent with an illegal partial-birth abortion –– her neck is cut and her brain removed. Another child, still in her gestational sac, may have been born alive and then left to die. The last two children, a boy, and a girl, approximately 22 weeks and 28 weeks old, were savagely dismembered and were likely the victims of D&E abortions. Autopsies should be performed on all five children by a qualified neonatal pathologist.
- This same abortionist who performed these heinous acts is on camera in a Live Action undercover investigation video stating clearly that if a child is accidentally born alive in his facility, he does not provide them with life-sustaining medical care and he allows them to die.
