Burial For 18 Unborn

267

Guam – A solemn burial mass was held this morning at the Pigo Cemetery to lay to rest 18 unborn and un-claimed fetuses.

Archbishop Anthony Apuron presided over the mass.  He stood before a small casket which held the fetuses, some of them the result of mis-carriages and at least 2 from abortions.

The mass and burial was organized by the Catholic Pro-Life Committee which has a standing relationship with GMH to bury the remains.

For the Archbishop it was an occasion to re-iterate the Church’s strong opposition to abortion.

The casket was donated by Ada’s Funeral Home and the burial space was given by the Piti Cemetery.
