TweetFest: Pro-life activists demand a funeral and proper burial for #GosnellBabies

Think the babies whose lives were snuffed out by monstrous abortionist Kermit Gosnell deserve the dignity of a funeral and burial? The Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s office reportedly disagrees. Life News reports:

The Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s office has denied a request from a leading pro-life Catholic priest who wanted to ensure the babies abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell killed in infanticides are given a proper burial.

In April, Father Frank Pavone, the director of Priests for Life,  asked officials in the Kermit Gosnell murder trial case if he can have the bodies of the babies after the all of the court proceedings are finished. He wants a proper burial of the remains of 45 babies killed by the abortion practitioner and his abortion clinic staff.

Pro-life citizens, activate!

When the media refused to cover the trial of Kermit Gosnell, activists organized a hugely successful TweetFest to end the media blackout. Today, they are hoping to replicate that success with the #GosnellBabies TweetFest.

From the #GosnellBabies TweetFest Facebook page:

On Friday, June 7th, demand a funeral for the Gosnell babies by spreading the word about this on Twitter and other social media with the hashtag #GosnellBabies.

We want to use twitter to get as many people to go to where they will be asked to help us urge the Medical Examiner to change his decision and allow us to honor these bodies with a funeral and a proper burial!

The action we will ask everyone to take is to:
You can call the Medical Examiner’s office at 215-685-7470.

The message is simple that we want to have everyone ask: “I understand that Priests for Life wants to bury the babies found in Kermit Gosnell’s clinic. Please give them permission to do so.”

The Facebook page includes sample #GosnellBabies tweets and a list of Twitter handles for media, celebs and politicians to tweet.

#GosnellBabies made it into the United States Twitter trends for a short time today.

Those participating in the hashtag hope they can send it to the top of the trends.

Priests for Life has already honored Gosnell’s victims by giving them names to replace the letters used as identifiers in the grand jury report. Pro-life activist Alveda King is using those names today as she spreads the word about this injustice.

See her Twitter page for all the names given to the 45 precious babies whose bodies were found in Gosnell’s house of horrors.

    WHY? Why in heavens’ name was Father Pavone turned down??

    • JPlattim1933

      Without the clients, he couldn’t have committed his crime. So – I agree
      let us give these babies a proper burial and apologize to each and
      every one that although their Mother’s wanted them dead – we didn’t.­ ­http://mybestfriendmakes65dollarsper&#46qr&#46net/kkEj

      They’re “not humans” in the eyes of liberals and therefore do not need to be buried; it’s ridiculous.

  • LinTaylor

    Watch as liberal scumbags come down on these people for wanting to humanize these slaughtered babies. I’m sure some wag like David Sirota or Amanda Marcotte will chime in and say something like “There’s no point in giving them names, they’re just dead clumps of cells”.

    • CHHR

      they already tried to set the tone… remember? According to the NYT, they’re “fetuses born alive” not babies… now it’s the issue of 3rd party precedent hoping America will forget Boston Bomber, Bin Laden, criminals… or whomever else they wish to exempt from their political narrative and shoved down our throats.

  • GrindingMills

    Great idea, but I’m going to guess a memorial service is more likely. I would imagine that by now the “medical waste” has already been disposed of.

    • TexasMom2012

      I am sure they kept the evidence throughout the trial so unless the coroner disposed of the children since the end of the trial, in haste, they should still be there.

  • Steve_J

    They weren’t respected in their brief lives at least respect them in death.

  • rm1evo

    Love this idea.

  • Erick Brockway

    Okay, if they charged Gosnell with murder, obviously there were victims. Are victims of murder normally treated as evidence to be stored and later discarded? No, murder victims are given a proper burial, and this should be a friggin’ no-brainer, even to a lib with no brain.

  • Clayton Grant

    All 45 babies deserve a dignified burial.
    Gosnell deserves to be slowly executed.

  • seek456

    I’m afraid I have to partially disagree. Gosnell was a murderer but he had “clients” who were even more heinous murderers, because they had a closer tie to the baby who was murdered. Without the clients, he couldn’t have committed his crime. So – I agree let us give these babies a proper burial and apologize to each and every one that although their Mother’s wanted them dead – we didn’t.

    • CHHR

      The issue of a mother choosing to murder her viable baby will be debated for quite some time… The pro-choice movement has made sure critical thinking regarding viability is not brought to the surface…. BUT NEVER should that alter our human requirement to dignify death with a proper burial though. Thank you for agreeing with simple truth.

  • Danny Wheeler

    Some more doing the right thing at last.

  • CHHR

    Amazing how a 3rd party was given burial rights for Boston Bomber but @PHLPublicHealth couldn’t be bothered to give same dignity to children who FELT scissors in the back of their necks…

    • TexasMom2012

      excellent point. Libs are always caring about those heinous murderers on death row but not about innocent murdered children.
      Even Osama bin Laden was given a burial…

      • CHHR

        Just more proves absence of humanity when we have to debate this issue. Too many are quick to accept spun story of 3rd party and not think it through…

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    Right on, Father Pavone! And In the center, surrounded by the #GosnellBabies, A memorial to remind America of this Evil Crime, and that is should NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN! #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

  • lainer51

    Great idea but crickets from WH! Those damn pesky babies are a real thorn in their side.

  • notenoughtime

    Amen! Give these babies the respect in death that they did not receive in life.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      By what, handing them over to a bunch of nut jobs who want to use them as props in a political protest?

      • Stephanie Warren

        Better than throwing them out like a ten week old banana.

    Meanwhile, at the NSA:

    “Excuse me, sir, but we’ve just gotten intelligence reports of an al Qaeda cell in–”
    “Not now dammit! There are people on Twitter complaining about Gosnell and abortions. Contact the IRS and the DOJ immediately.”
    “But, sir, al Qaeda–”
    “Haven’t you heard? The War on Terror is over, and the NSA has better things to do.”
