WASHINGTON — The Washington, D.C., medical examiner said that it will not be performing autopsies on bodies of aborted babies that were turned into police last week.
But pro-life activists and medical professionals say that the bodies show signs of illegal and gruesome abortion procedures — and these activists fear that the bodies will be incinerated before proper autopsies can be conducted.
“One of the worst injustices would be if the medical examiner and D.C. government dispose or incinerate the bodies of these children before a full autopsy could be completed,” Live Action’s director of government affairs Noah Brandt told The Daily Wire on Monday.
“The abortionists do not want autopsies performed because they may indicate violations of federal law,” he said. “D.C. must preserve these remains until a full, fair, and thorough investigation can be completed.”
