On August 25-26, the pro-life and pro-faith communities, national and local leaders, along with people of good will, will come together in Philadelphia to ensure the babies murdered by late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell receive a proper and dignified funeral and burial service.
The name of the event is called “A Cry for Dignity!”
Tragically, the Medical Examiner‘s Office has refused to release these babies to caring organizations and individuals to afford them a loving and compassionate funeral and burial. The Medical Examiner even locked faith and pro-life leaders out of their public office when they tried to find out more information about how these precious children would be treated.
The conviction of Gosnell on murder charges makes it clear to the world that these babies are persons and must be afforded the same equal rights as anyone else under the law. These babies were brutalized once by Kermit Gosnell. We must ensure that these innocent children are not brutalized and diminished again by the City of Philadelphia!
As Dr. Martin Luther King said, “There comes a time when silence is betrayal.” We cannot be silent and betray the humanity of these children. It is critical that we have a strong, vocal turnout at all our events.
