PHILADELPHIA, April 24, 2013 ( – One of the country's leading pro-life priests says he has put in a request to the medical examiner in Pennsylvania to obtain the bodies of the babies that were recovered from Kermit Gosnell's “House of Horrors,” to give them a proper burial.

The bodies of some 45 babies were found at Gosnell's facility in Philadelphia. The remains were frozen and stored in a variety of containers, including milk jugs, cat food cans, and even a cherry lime-ade container.


“These are not just medical waste. These are human bodies,” Fr. Frank Pavone, the founder and head of Priests for Life, told Fox News. “Real human beings were killed.”

“So, there are two reasons” to bury them, Fr. Pavone said. “One is that to properly honor these children, who of course have been dishonored by what Gosnell did. And secondly, to alert the public, to raise the consciousness that we're talking about real killings here.” 

Fr. Pavone said the medical examiner said he would get back to him.  He also says that he has contacted the judge in the case to see if Gosnell would be willing to meet with him.
