Philadelphia Region Local News reported Feb 23rd that Police and federal authorities who raided a doctor's office after receiving allegations that a woman died following an abortion, made a shocking discovery: more than two dozen frozen fetuses. Sources reported to Eyewitness News that the search came after a patient reportedly died following an abortion on November 20 last.
Police, State Licensing officials and DEA agents, searched the West Philadelphia office of Dr. Kermit Gosnell on Monday for the second time.
According to the State Board of Medicine, Dr. Gosnell had an unlicensed staff member conduct vaginal exams and administer medication. It is claimed the staff member administered Demerol, Promethazine and Diazepam to the female patient and when the doctor arrived at the clinic, the patient was given more medication. Following the abortion, the patient started to have an arrhythmia and later died, state officials said. Autopsy results are pending.
Sources also told Eyewitness News that during the subsequent Police search, investigators recovered more than two dozen fetuses stored in a freezer, some dating back 30 years.
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has called for the remains of these tiny human beings to be given a reverent burial as soon as possible. Such a burial should be a public event where people can mourn the loss of life, he said.
“The disrespect that the abortion industry has for the human body is seen not only in the fact that they kill these children, but also in how they treat their bodies after death,” Fr. Pavone explained.
“It is time now for the bodies of these children to be honored with a dignified burial. It should be a public event, so that our nation will have the opportunity to see that abortion is not an abstraction, and so that people can make up in some fashion for the disrespect with which these children have been treated.”
