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.

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.
