HARPERS FERRY, West Virginia (LifeSiteNews) – In an exclusive interview with LifeSiteNews’ Jim Hale, Fr. Bill Kuchinsky broke his silence to go on the record and state that he is the priest who offered the funeral Mass for the 115 babies allegedly found outside of the Surgi-Clinic abortion facility in Washington, D.C., by pro-life activists Terrisa Bukovinac and Lauren Handy. 

To me it was very clear that this was a mission from God to make sure these babies made it into a proper burial,” said Fr. Kuchinsky, who currently serves as a prison chaplain in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston. “Each of us is created in the image and likeness of God … [and] the body is an outward sign of the soul, an outward expression of the soul. The bodies themselves, even though the soul has departed, have a sacredness to us.” 

Known for his strongly pro-life priestly ministry, Fr. Kuchinsky was contacted simply to pray for the babies. The West Virginia priest soon recognized, however, that the extraordinary situation called for a more profound spiritual and solemn response. 

Indeed, when they were turned over to me, it became a mission of mine to make sure that these babies receive the burial — as you know, it is one of the corporal works of mercy to bury the dead,” he elaborated, visibly moved. I was given the honor — I was given the honor — to make sure these babies were afforded an honor they weren’t in life, not being able to be born.” 

Fr. Kuchinsky ensured that he took pictures of the aborted babies, both to testify to the dignity of their lives and spotlight the reality of abortion.  

“Hopefully, these pictures, this story, it does not get buried,” said Fr. Kuchinsky. “And that’s part of the reason that I’m doing this.” 

The priest stated that he has helped comfort Bukovinac, Handy, and others close to them as they mourn after their awful discovery. He believes that those critical and detracting of these pro-life heroes are missing what is centrally important to the situation.

He concluded: “I think the focus should be on the babies and what we can do to make sure this evil comes to an end as a country.”
