Marla Cardamone was killed by "safe and legal" abortion.
For decades, Priests for Life has been proclaiming that what kills the
unborn child harms (and sometimes kills) the mother as well.
Now we are putting graphics to words.
With the full permission of her parents, we are making public Marla's
autopsy photos. A "safe and legal" abortion at a respected Pittsburgh
hospital left the once beautiful Marla looking horrific.
And she represents countless others.
This "Safe and Legal" project is a joint effort of Life Dynamics (which
initiated the effort), Priests for Life, and Operation Rescue.
