El Paso, TX – The remains of an aborted baby were discovered outside Franz Theard’s Hilltop Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic in El Paso on Friday, April 22, 2011.
The remains, including discernible arms and hands, feet and legs, were discovered by the abortion clinic’s neighbor after his dog began to root in the trash near the Hilltop abortion clinic’s dumpster. He bagged the remains and later gave them to sidewalk Counselor Gaby Federico, of the pro-life group Live Action.
The police were called and the Medical Examiner arrived. The alley where the remains were discovered was cordoned off with red crime scene tape. Police investigators told reporters that the remains appeared to be that of a 9 to 12 week old pre-born baby.
Since the body parts were from an abortion, the police have refused to investigate further and handed the remains over to the Department of Health for disposal.
This upset pro-life supporters who wanted to give the aborted child a proper burial. Reportedly, the Bishop of El Paso, Armando Ochoa, heard about the incident and went to the scene to offer to provide funeral services for the baby.
“The Texas agencies appear to be giving pro-life supporters the same run-around they gave us when we documented illegal dumping of biohazardous material at other abortion clinics in that state,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It’s important not to take ‘no’ for an answer when dealing with stubborn bureaucrats.”
Abortionist Theard is already under investigation by the Texas Medical Board after an undercover investigation by Operation Rescue discovered abuses at his clinic, including a willingness to coach minor girls how to evade parental notification laws. This incident only adds to his troubles.
“We will be contacting the Texas Medical Board to inform them of this obvious case of illegal dumping of human remains,” said Newman. “They can add this incident to their ongoing investigation.”
“Our heart breaks for this baby who died alone and unloved. This vulnerable and innocent little one deserved better than to be brutally dismembered then discarded like trash. The reality is that this is what happens to almost all babies aborted in this country. But perhaps in death, we can give this child the dignity that was denied him or her in life, by using this tragedy to expose the abortion clinic’s illegal activity and, prayerfully, close it for good.”
