Livonia, MI (LifeNews.com) — Local pro-life advocates in the Detroit area have found the bodies of babies killed in abortions and patient medical records in another Michigan abortion center’s dumpster. The finding comes on the heels of one abortion facility that ran afoul of illegal dumping laws and was investigated by the state.
This time, members of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society found the bodies, biohazard waste and medical records at the Women’s Advisory abortion business in Livonia.
A representative of the group, Monica Miller, told LifeNews.com her organization found the remains of six aborted babies 16 to 20 weeks gestational age.
The Women’s Advisory abortion center is owned by Reginald Sharpe and the finding comes after Miller’s group found bodies, records and medical waste in dumpsters behind a Lathrup Village-based Womancare abortion center owned by Albert Hodari.
Miller was eventually stuck with the bill in that case.
"Extensive bio-hazard waste and patient records were discovered there (in some ways worse than Hodari’s dumpsters) as well as in the trash container behind Sharpe’s other abortion clinic located on Warren Avenue in Detroit," Miller told LifeNews.com.
Miller said members of her group first spotted the illegal dumping in late March and made repeated searches throughout April.
She informed the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality of the violations and said the state agency conducted its own investigation of the Women’s Advisory dumpster on April 30.
"All Reginald Sharpe has received is a warning. No fines, no penalties. It’s Hodari all over again," she said in a reference to MEQ’s refusal to take any disciplinary action against him in the first case. "It still remains to be seen if the Wayne County prosecutor will act on the illegal dumping of the patient records."
"When found these aborted babies in the trash," Miller continued. "They shared what could have been their final resting place with the most despicable waste–the bloody canulas, the bloody surgical paper, bloody gauze and gloves, half-eaten McDonald’s food, pop bottles and juice box containers."
"This is abortion in America, human beings killed under the law and treated like trash," she concluded.
The organization has posted a video of their searchers on the popular YouTube web site.
ACTION: Call the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality at 517-241-1320 and ask it to do more to hold the two abortion centers accountable.
