Over the last decade, Tong Phuoc Phu from Vietnam has buried more than 10,000 aborted babies, giving them each a final resting place. But he wanted to do more, he wanted to save babies from abortion. And now, he’s done just that.
It was then that he took notice of the fact that some pregnant women were entering a room at the hospital which they then emerged from, no longer pregnant. When he realized the children were being aborted, he asked the hospital for permission to take their bodies for a proper burial.
“I believe these fetuses have souls,” he said. “And I don’t want them to be wandering souls.”
Tong, a Catholic from the town of Nha Trang, purchased land with his savings and began burying the babies. He has said that the cemetery he created isn’t just a place of sadness, but a place that he hopes will inspire women to choose life. Abortions have outnumbered births at state hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City. Pre-martial sex, lack of understanding or desire for contraception, and gendercide have led to the extremely high abortion rate.
“I will continue this work till my last breath,” Tong said. “I hope my own kids will continue helping people when I’m gone.”
