Officials in South Africa say there has been a discovery of the bodies of 11 dead unborn babies at a taxi stand. 

The SAPA news service has this report:

ultrasound4d13Eleven human foetuses have been found in a bucket at a taxi rank in Mdantsane, Eastern Cape, the SABC reported on Wednesday.

Lieutenant Nkosikho Mzuku said taxi commuters alerted police to the remains.

No one had been arrested by Wednesday evening.

According to the report, there has been speculation that the foetuses could have originated from a local clinic.

Although this initial report offers very little additional information, there is a possibility that the bodies of the babies could have come from a local abortion clinic. Pro-life advocates in the United States have found bodies of aborted babies before.

In 2011, local pro-life advocates helping to offer women alternatives to abortion outside an abortion clinic in El Paso, Texas 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.”
