Petition to Dr. Sam Gulino,
Chief Medical Examiner, Philadelphia
We, the undersigned, respectfully request that the
bodies of the babies found in the clinic of Dr Kermit
Gosnell be released to Fr. Frank Pavone, national
director of Priests for Life to give them a proper
funeral and burial.
We wish to honor these babies who were so brutally
killed and restore some measure of dignity to them.
In the Christian Church, this practice is, of course,
one of the corporal works of mercy, to bury the dead. In
the United States of America, both Christians and
non-Christians understand the importance of treating the
body with respect.
Amidst the din of political, philosophical, and
religious arguments about abortion, our society easily
loses sight of the fact that we are talking about real
Please allow us to give these children the respect
they were not given during their brief lives.
