Local pro-life advocates helping to offer women alternatives to abortion outside an abortion clinic in El Paso, Texas have found the body of an unborn child victimized by an abortion in the parking lot of the facility.
Gaby Federico, who is also associated with the pro-life group Live Action, discovered a dead, dismembered baby in the parking lot of Hilltop Family Planning Clinic, an abortion center in this western Texas city.The Hilltop clinic advertises abortions up to 15 weeks into pregnancy.
Federico and a fellow pro-life sidewalk counselor at the abortion center were alerted to the baby’s body a man who lives next to the abortion center. He said the night before, his dog had been sniffing around the parking lot and found the baby’s body parts lying on the ground, so he put the remains of the baby in a plastic bag and handed the bag to Federico this morning. The bag contained disarticulated tissue, two bloody legs with feet, and a severed hand.
Federico notified police, who arrived at the abortion center late this morning and investigated the situation and interviewed abortion facility staff. Staffers told officials the body of the baby did not come from the abortion facility and said they “dispose of bodies properly” by using a hazardous waste company to process the remains of the babies victimized in abortions.
“This is horrible to know that these children are killed daily here in El Paso, not only without a burial, but to be disposed of in such an inhuman way. It’s not fair,” Frederico said. “This shouldn’t ever happen, in El Paso or anywhere. The world needs to see what abortion clinics do to children. When dead babies start turning up in the clinic parking lot, no further proof is needed of what abortion is. These clinics need to be shut down.”
She indicated the police said they would not hold anyone at the abortion center accountable and would not follow through on ensuring a proper burial for the baby. The Bishop of El Paso, Armando Achoa, has reportedly come to the abortion center and has asked for the baby’s body so he can officiate a proper burial.
Upon viewing photographs of the body parts, former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson said they were remarkably well-developed.
“The findings are consistent with the remains of an abortion procedure,” Johnson, who was the director of the Bryan/College Station Planned Parenthood abortion center for years and was also a “products of conception technician,” the term for someone who reassembles baby body parts after an abortion to ensure the abortion was complete. “Based on the development of the foot and the formation of the leg, and what appears to be a tear at the top of the leg, this looks like an abortion done through vacuum aspiration on a child at 12 to 14 weeks LMP.”
Live Action president Lila Rose also commented on the situation.
“On Good Friday, millions of Americans contemplate the mystery of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. It is a fitting time to remember that thousands of children every day suffer the violent death of abortion, while too many stand by out of indifference or ignorance,” she said.
She is also concerned because the local police have confiscated the body of the unborn child and refuse to release the baby for burial.
“El Paso police are refusing to release this child into the hands of those who are wanting to provide a proper burial. Call the El Paso police department and demand justice for this child! This baby deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Demand a proper burial for this tiny child! Please call 915-564-7000,” she said.
