Katie YoderRandall Terry, spokesman for the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising, a pro-life group, speaks at a press conference on April 5. The group says it obtained the remains of more than 100 aborted babies, which included five babies the group says were the victims of late-term abortions, from a biohazard waste disposal company, a charge the company has denied.
These children are often treated as medical waste. But several states mandate cremation or burial. In addition, the Church works to ensure they are shown respect.
