Priest to conduct memorial service and give names to lost Gosnell clinic infants

The tiny bodies have not been forgotten, even as grim testimony continues. That is the thinking of Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, the largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.


“As we await the verdict in the trial of Kermit Gosnell, Priests for Life, which has requested from the medical examiner the bodies of the babies retrieved from Gosnell’s clinic so that a funeral and burial can be arranged, will take the step this week of giving names to those babies,” Father Pavone says.


“On Thursday, we will have a memorial service, which we will make available online, in which we will acknowledge the human dignity and personhood of these children, and bestow names upon them. God has entrusted the lives of all of us to one another,”he continues.


During the ongoing trial in Philadelphia, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, is charged with killing five people - a patient and four viable babies that prosecutors say were born alive. He has also been charged with performing late-term abortions that violate Pennsylvania’s 24-week limit on the procedure.


“Though a father or mother may forsake the child, that does not give us permission to do so. We claim these children as our brothers and sisters,” the priest concludes.


More information on the service will be posted on Facebook.com/ProLifePage, he adds.
