Priests for Life to name the babies killed in Gosnell clinic


Priests for Life



STATEN ISLAND, NY -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement this morning:

“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.

On Wednesday, 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. 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.”

More information will be posted on”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit

Any info on a possible burial service for these dear babies? If it's in Philadelphia on a Saturday I could make the drive from Pittsburgh. Thank you for your work.
