Call for Dignity: Pro-lifers to protest Philly Med Examiners to bury abortionist Gosnell babies

Today Prolifers will gather in front of the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s office at 321 University Avenue, Philadelphia, demanding a burial for the babies murdered by Gosnell. Activists will be kneeling in prayer in front of the Medical Examiner’s office with the names of all the babies that were murdered by Kermit Gosnell which are still at that office. Some will be risking arrest if they are asked to leave.


The 47 unborn children discovered three years ago in a Philadelphia abortion clinic are part of an emotional dispute over whether foes of abortion can claim the remains for burial. An alliance of anti-abortion groups is pressing Philadelphia Medical Examiner Sam Gulino to give them the remains, now that Kermit Gosnell is in jail and his clinic is closed. Gulino says his office does not release remains to unrelated third parties. He has assured Priests for Life, Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania, Christian Defense Coalition, and others that the remains will get a proper and respectful disposition. Michael McMonagle, president of the Pro-Life Coalition, says the groups will pay for the burials and want to bring dignity to the deaths.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Washington, D.C. based Christian Defense Coalition, states,

“It is appalling and reprehensible for the City of Philadelphia to keep these children in storage at the Medical Examiner’s Office for up to 10 years after so many have requested they be released to them and given a proper and dignified funeral and burial.

“The official guidelines and regulations set forth by the Medical Examiner make it clear that any ‘interested’ party can put in a request asking for any unidentified person to be released into their care.

“Numerous national and local faith and community organizations have put in written formal requests for these children.

“The conviction of Kermit Gosnell on murder charges makes it clear that these babies are ‘persons’ and must be afforded the same equal rights as anyone else under the law.

“It is tragic and barbaric that government officials are playing ‘abortion politics’ with these innocent babies. These children were brutalized once by Kermit Gosnell. We are now demanding that they are not brutalized again by the City of Philadelphia.”
