Baby girl lies in open casket after late-term abortion

A funeral service was conducted this past week for an aborted baby, whose tiny body had been recently been retrieved from an abortion clinic by pro-life activists at Operation Save America.

LifeSiteNews reports:

“We are here because this baby was killed in the darkness, and we come to honor her in the bright light of day,” Fr. Frank Pavone declared in his remarks. “The abortion industry wants to hide the violence done to these children, but we must be committed to expose it. Therefore we need to hold many more of these services, with tens of thousands of people looking at these children and recommitting themselves to end abortion.

…During the service, the name “Esther” was given to the child.

It is difficult to imagine how anyone could view the lifeless body of this child and continue to believe that abortion is justified. Understandably, most clinics are intent on disposing of the bodies hastily so that the evidence cannot be seen. Out of sight, out of mind. Though several states have proposed bills to protect the remains of aborted babies from being discarded as biohazardous waste.

Fr. Frank [National Director of Priests for Life] invited any pro-life activists who obtain the remains of aborted children to be in contact with him to arrange for a proper wake service and burial.
