From Ted Meehan
It was in May 2010 that the Grand Jury considered the atrocities committed by Kermit Gosnell. Two years later in May 2012, Gosnell was sentenced to Life in Prison.
He had been convicted of more than 240 criminal offenses, including the first degree murder of three babies. Prosecutors reported that "hundreds of born-alive babies" had been murdered, but they prosecuted only the easiest three for conviction.
Dozens of these victim babies have still not been buried. They are being kept in a freezer in the Philadelphia Medical Examiner's Office. Mayor Nutter's administration has refused to allow these babies to be released for burial, despite multiple requests having been made.
We will be asking Mayor Nutter - again - to release these babies for burial at his office on June 10 at 11am. Anyone who is available is invited to join us.(Spread the word.)
But, in order to add weight to our request, we are urging you to print out several copies of the Petition using this link, and ask your fellow parishioners, neighbors, and friends - to add their names to this humanitarian request. One of the Corporal Works of Mercy is to Bury the Dead.
Please bring petitions with you on June 10 or mail them to Philly Alive, 720 North Eagle Road, Havertown, PA 19083. For more information contact Philly Alive at PhillyAlive2015@gmail.com.
