Father Frank Pavone, the director of Priests for Life, has asked officials in the Kermit Gosnell murder trial case if he can have the bodies of the babies after the all of the court proceedings are finished. He wants a proper burial of the remains of 45 babies killed by the abortion practitioner and his abortion clinic staff.

“These are not just medical waste. These are human bodies — real human being were killed,” Pavone said. “There are two reasons here: One, to properly honor these children of course who have been dishonored by what Gosnell did. And secondly, to alert the public and to raise the consciousness that we are talking about real killings here.”

Pavone said the medical examiner said he would get back to him about the request.

Pavone has also asked the judge to meet with Gosnell if he would be willing to talk to him.
