"Say their names" was the chant in front of the Washington, D.C., city hall as an interesting mix of progressive and conservative activists joined together to stand for 115 babies murdered—five of them, fully formed, apparently born alive.
According to veteran pro-life activist and lawyer, Larry Cirignano, director of The Children First Foundation, "We are against the death penalty for all people—born and preborn—and we look forward to redemption, not crucifixion," commenting on the unbelievable story of how 115 precious children came to be in the possession of an unlikely organization: a progressive pro-life group called Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising.
In a Washington, D.C., press conference, staff of PAAU explained how a chance encounter in front of the Washington Surgi Clinic, a well-known abortion mill where they were protesting, transformed what is generally known about the disposal of aborted children to a shocking reality. They came across a truck that had pulled up to load "waste" from the clinic.
Approaching the driver, one of the staffers said, "Do you know what you are loading up?"
After the driver said it was just routine waste from various clinics, the staffer told him he was disposing of aborted babies.
Clearly spooked by the information, the driver asked what he should do, and the staffer offered to take the children and give them a proper burial.
The driver, clearly shocked, handed them one of three boxes and quickly drove off.
Opening the box up later at their offices, the PAAU team was stunned to find 115 precious children in various levels of destruction.
According to avowed atheist and founder of PAAU Terrisa Bukovinac and Lauren Handy, PAAU director, who kept the children's bodies following their visit to the clinic, the truck owned by Curtis Bay Energy also contained five fully formed children who had sustained injuries that likely reveal partial-birth abortion, a federal crime. The five included one boy, whom the two named Christopher X, and four girls: Harriet, Angel, Holly and Phoenix.
"I think I can speak for both Lauren and me when I say, 'This was the most devastating and soul-crushing experience of our lives,'" Bukovinac said. "Not even years of anti-abortion advocacy would have prepared us for that moment."
The team immediately contacted local medical personnel to have the five children evaluated for legal purposes and arranged for a funeral and burial for the 110 as promised.
Stunningly, no medical personnel were willing to evaluate the precious children. Running out of time, the team contacted the police to arrange a transfer of the tiny bodies so they could be evaluated by the coroner.
Unfortunately, this triggered a firestorm of unbelievably biased media coverage that resulted in not only the story of the 115 children not being told, but a carefully choreographed "raid" on their offices to take the bodies of the five children that they had been carefully preserving so they could be properly inspected.
In a further miscarriage of justice, one of the staffers was arrested for a rally three years prior in front of another abortion mill, a well-timed arrest designed to hurt hose who saved the lives of the children. In addition to Handy, who found the children, eight other pro-life activists were arrested on trumped-up charges.
Cirignano has a message for believers: "Just a few days go a woman was scheduled to have the death penalty for killing her small child—what a contrast for something that happens every day at abortion mills through the country," he says. "As believers we are called to defend life, regardless of when."
For those who attended the press conference, the haunting eyes of the precious children shown in a video presentation have been the most troubling, as they were clearly murdered—all 115 of them—and dumped unceremoniously in the back of a truck to be used as fuel to power the electrical system of nearby Baltimore. All this is further testimony to the sad state of not only the presidency but our nation as well.
