1,000 Attend Funeral for 17 Discarded Unborn Babies

Over 1,000 people packed St. Mary’s Cathedral in Lansing, Michigan, Saturday in a public display of grief and mourning and paid their respects to 17 aborted babies whose dismembered bodies were discovered in the trash dumpster used by Womans Choice abortion clinic located in Lansing—the states’ capitol. The aborted babies, whose bodies once lay at the bottom of a garbage container, were brought before the sanctuary in a simple white infant’s coffin for a funeral Mass celebrated by Lansing bishop Earl Boyea. Boyea also presided over the aborted babies’ funeral rite at St. Joseph’s Cemetery. Five hundred of those who were present at the Mass attended the burial ceremony.

Several young children gathered around the aborted babies’ grave as their white coffin was lowered into the ground. Children helped bury the remains of the aborted children—each taking turns as they shoveled dirt into the grave.

Monica Miglioriono Miller states: “The abortion clinic treated these human beings as if they were trash. Pro-lifers buried them—and treated them with dignity and respect. In this we see the clash of two cultures—and it matters which one shall prevail. This grave is a place of justice and healing—healing for all the mothers and fathers who grieve the loss of their aborted child. But this grave is also an indictment—an indictment against a nation that allows this sort of atrocity. The voices of these unborn children cry out to us from the ground that covers them now. Let us hear their plea and end the injustice of abortion.”
