24 / 02 / 2010 - Two Dozen Frozen Fetuses Found in Grisly Abortuary Police Raid
State police investigating a Philadelphia abortuary stumbled upon a gruesome discovery last week: over two dozen fetuses in jars preserved in a freezer in the abortionist's office, according to local reports. Authorities temporarily suspended the abortionist's license soon after the raid, after discovering clinic conditions they called "deplorable and unsanitary" - including bloodstains on the floor.
State drug agents, as well as FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration agents, commenced the investigation last week at West Philadelphia's Women's Medical Society. Various sources are reporting various reasons for why the investigation was launched.
According to FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver, as cited by UPI, officials were acting on a tip that Gosnell was performing illegal late-term abortions. However, law enforcement sources cited by the Philadelphia Inquirer stated that officials were investigating the abortionist on suspicion of illegal distribution of prescription painkillers. While CBS 3, which broke the story, said the investigation was launched in response to a woman's death during a botched abortion there on November 20.
While the investigation began last Thursday, a subsequent investigation stumbled upon the fetal corpses, some of them killed as long as 30 years ago, displayed in the office of abortionist Kermit Goznell. Those fetuses are being analyzed to determine whether they were killed at a point beyond the legal gestational age for abortion.
Following the investigation, officials issued a suspension order, saying the conditions of the clinic were "deplorable and unsanitary," reports the Inquirer.
"There was blood on the floor, and parts of aborted fetuses were displayed in jars," states the order, which called Gosnell's continued practice of medicine "an immediate and clear danger to the public health and safety."
Records indicate that Goznell was publicly reprimanded by the state licensing board in 1995 for employing an uncertified assistant who treated at least one patient.
Sources cited by CBS 3 say that in the November abortion death, an unlicensed assistant allegedly administered drugs to a woman who later died during an abortion procedure. The woman's corpse reportedly contained high levels of a painkilling drug.
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today that the 24 or more bodies of dead babies found in the freezer of a Philadelphia abortion clinic should 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.”
While investigating the abortion-related death of a woman at a Philadelphia abortion clinic last week, local reports say officials uncovered a macabre collection of frozen bodies of unborn children preserved in jars. Some were reportedly thought to have been preserved for as many as 30 years.
Abortionist Kermit Gosnell's license was suspended soon after the raid, following a suspension order citing "deplorable and unsanitary" conditions in his office, where officials found blood stains on the floor.
Fr. Pavone has conducted a number of funerals around the country for children whose bodies were recovered from abortion facility trash dumpsters.
“Next to killing the children, there’s nothing that the abortion industry wants more than to keep the violence hidden. Our responsibility is to expose it,” Fr. Pavone concluded.
