A pro-life volunteer decided to rummage through a garbage bin at Northeast Ohio Women's Center, located in Bedford Heights, where an aborted fetus was found along with private patient information and medical items.
Denise Leipold of Right to Life of Northeast Ohio says the aborted child is 17 to 18 weeks gestation.
“They found lots of confidential patient information that was easily readable and identifiable,” she says, “and a lot of hazardous waste: blood specimens, urine specimens, bloody tissue, surgical sheets.”
All of that is illegal so Leipold says they contacted various agencies such as the Ohio Dept. of Health and the Ohio Medical Board, and others, too.
As the pro-lifers wait for action by state investigators, the fetal remains will be buried at Holy Cross Cemetery, located in Akron, on Sept. 25 which is the National Day of Remembrance.
The discovery at the Women’s Center shows disregard for the sanctity of life and disregard for the law, Leipold tells American Family News.
