Lathrup Village, MI (LifeNews.com) — Acting on a tip from a local pro-life group, Michigan officials have found parts of unborn children, medical waste and patient records in a dumpster outside an abortion center. The potentially illegal dumping occurred outside the WomanCare abortion center on Southfield Road and the contents are believed to be from the abortion business.
Sgt. Vincent Lynch of the Lathrup Village Police Department told the Detroit Free Press newspaper that a local pro-life group tipped off officials about the problems.
He said the contents of the dumpster were inspected and cataloged and a licensed hazardous waste hauler removed the contents.
Lynch also indicated local officials will investigate the improper disposal of medical records — a surprise given abortion advocates’ refusal to turn over medical records in other cases in other states citing supposed privacy violations.
According to Lynch, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality will conduct a probe into the medical waste, including surgical pads, gloves and other items found in the dumpster along with the records.
The newspaper indicated its attempts to reach abortion center staff were unsuccessful.
Monica Migliorino Miller said her group found the dumpster’s contents during its participation in a national 40-day protest that prompted members of her group to pray and protest outside Womancare.
The Womancare abortion center has come under fire on repeated occasions.
In December, Womancare abortion practitioner Alberto Hodari told students at Wayne State University that his status as an abortion practitioner gives him license to lie to women.
Hodari also spoke about how little he washed between abortions because it chafed his hands, even though his doing so puts women’s health at risk.
Last July, Hodari confirmed that the six Womancare abortion centers are willing to put women’s health at risk by misusing a drug for heart conditions to do the abortions.
To get around the partial-birth abortion ban, they are using the drug digoxin to kill the baby inside the mother’s womb and then cause the mother to miscarry the dead baby’s body. He confirmed that all women having abortions between 18 weeks and 24 weeks of pregnancy will get digoxin.
Womancare is also the abortion business that did the botched abortion on 15-year-old Tamiah Russell, who died after the late-term abortion.
