Curtis Bay Medical Waste Center, a Baltimore waste facility, is denying that it incinerates fetal remains “amid controversy over the discovery of aborted baby bodies that were allegedly contained in a box covered with the waste facility’s logo,” according to Mary Margaret Olohan of the Daily Wire. The babies’s remains allegedly came from the Washington Surgi Center.
Five of the 115 babies “that appear to be of late-term gestation are now in the possession of Washington, D.C. Metro Police, which retrieved the remains Friday from an apartment in the city where they were being stored by members of Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU)…. Police say they are in the early stages of an investigation into how the remains were obtained,” Jonah McKeown and Katie Yoder reported for the Catholic News Agency.
Dr. Cesare Santangelo, an OBGYN and well-known abortionist in Washington, operates the Washington Surgi Center.
18 Senators, lead by James Langford, and six Congressmen sent a letter to Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, Chief of the DC Metropolitan Police Department Robert Contee, and US Attorney General Merrick Garland “demanding an investigation into the deaths of the babies, including an autopsy since evidence suggests one or more of them may have lost their life through an illegal partial-birth abortion or may have been born alive and later killed.”
McKeown and Yoder reported that “Curtis Bay Medical Waste Services has confirmed that it did pick up three boxes of medical waste from Washington Surgi-Clinic the morning of March 25, but the company denies that any of the boxes left the driver’s possession.

In a statement, Curtis Bay said it has a contract to dispose of biohazardous medical waste from the clinic at a power-generating incinerator the company operates in Baltimore, but the company maintained that “customers like Washington Surgi Clinic are prohibited from disposing of fetuses and human remains via Curtis Bay’s services.”
But at a press conference, the pro-life group, PAAU, “displayed graphic video footage and still photos of the babies’ remains. The video footage showed someone wearing gloves opening the cardboard box and removing early-stage aborted babies from lidded plastic containers. The group’s members said the 110 smaller babies have been given names, a funeral Mass, and dignified burial in an ‘undisclosed location.’”
