Leaders demand Justice for Five Babies Discarded in the Trash in our Nation’s Capital


Political and Pro-Life Leaders joined with multiple U.S. Congress members demanding justice for five late-term aborted babies found outside of a D.C. abortion facility almost two years ago. Possible evidence of illegal abortions and the age of the bodies sparked outrage when discovered and led to calls for an investigation into the infants’ deaths. But recently, the Department of Justice (DOJ) attempted to dispose of the bodies without looking into the deaths. However, due to pressure from Congress members and many pro-life organizations, the DOJ paused it’s plans.  

Congressional leaders Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Rep. Anna Luna (R-FL), Rep. Bob Good (R-VA), Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), and Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) spoke out on behalf of the children.  

Students for Life Action (SFLAction) Government Affairs Coordinator Savanna Deretich represented the Pro-Life Generation, and made the following statement:  

“The Pro-Life Generation demands justice for the five aborted infants and so many more who lost their lives to abortion in the heart of our nation’s capital. Students for Life Action’s President Kristan Hawkins stated, “If these five fetuses, these innocent children, died from an act of infanticide or unconstitutional Partial Birth Abortions, people must be held criminally accountable. 

“Students for Life Action called on D.C. police chief and Congress to do the job that neither Biden’s Department of Justice or D.C.’s mayor seems inclined to do: Investigate late-term abortion. The city medical examiner has no plans to determine how the babies died, and  D.C. police’s executive assistant chief of policy claims the five babies were aborted ‘in accordance with D.C. law. How can they tell without an autopsy? We need to know if those babies drew a breath and then were killed outside the womb in an act of infanticide. We need to know if the disreputable abortion vendor in question used an illegal Partial Birth Abortion to end a life. 

“It’s of vital public interest to know whether illegal means are used to kill babies late in pregnancy, especially when there are late-term abortion businesses operating in D.C.   

A Planned Parenthood mega-center performs abortions up to 19 weeks and six days of gestation, while Washington Surgi-Clinic advertises abortions through ‘27 plus weeks.’ DuPont Clinic, a referral center for high-risk abortion cases, performs abortions through 31 weeks of gestation for any reason. Capital Women’s Group, associated with infamous abortion doctor Steven Brigham, advertises abortion up to 36 weeks of gestation. Additionally, pro-choice groups report that a D.C. hospital performs abortions through the second trimester.” 

“No one needs to tell us at Students for Life Action that D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is biased in favor of abortion. When you consider that she sent police to arrest two of our students for chalking ‘Black Preborn Lives Matter.’ We’re not anywhere closer to stamping ‘Case Closed’ on these deaths. Chief Contee, please bring justice to these five preborn citizens of the district, they deserved better. They deserved life.  

“These five innocent preborn children didn’t deserve the death they received. We must save others from suffering the same fate.”
