Lansing, MI bishop to bury 17 aborted babies found in dumpster

November 15, 2010/Citizens for a Pro-life Society --

The most Reverend Earl Boyea, Bishop of Lansing, MI. will personally conduct the funeral rites for 17 aborted babies, whose remains were discovered earlier this year in a trash dumpster used by the Womans Choice abortion clinic located in Eaton County.

These solemn funeral rites will take place Saturday, November 20, 2010 beginning with a Mass at St. Mary's Cathedral, 219 Seymour St., Lansing, MI, 11:00am. The burial of the aborted babies will follow immediately at St. Joseph's Cemetery. Hundreds of people are expected to attend this rare event and the Diocese of Lansing has thrown itself into the Mass and burial preparations.

Bishop Boyea agreed to conduct the burial after having been approached by pro-lifers who had conducted several searches of the clinic's trash container--as well as searches of the dumpster used by the Womans Choice sister facility in Saginaw. In addition to the bodies of the aborted babies, pro-lifers found extensive medical waste as well as several patient records. The mothers' names were plainly visible on the bags containing their aborted children. Please see a history of this case below. Their discoveries prompted a 7 month-long investigation involving the Michigan Attorney General's Office as well as the Eaton and Saginaw County Sheriff's Departments. Contrary to earlier reports, the Attorney General's office has not yet completed its findings in connection with the Womans Choice clinics. In the meantime, the bodies of these seventeen aborted babies will be honored and humanely laid to rest.

Monica Migliorino Miller, director of CPLS, who organized several searches of the Womans Choice dumpsters, states:

In the burial of these babies we see a clash of two cultures--the culture of life vs. the culture of death.

Under the law these human beings were allowed to be killed and their bodies dumped in the trash. But there's another culture that welcomes these abandoned children, sees in them the image of God, and will do what it can to reverse the injustice that has been committed against them.

The last corporal work of mercy is to bury the dead, but it will be the first mercy these children will ever know. And we hope healing will come to those who have had abortions.

In this burial the Church proclaims a witness: that human life is sacred and a challenge to America: End the injustice of abortion.
