Reports of aborted body parts allegedly being sold for profit or disposed of through improper or illegal means have long raised concerns for pro-lifers about how facilities handle the human remains left behind after each abortion.

During a Wednesday House Judiciary Committee hearing on abortion, Alabama abortionist Dr. Yashica Robinson declined to directly answer a question from Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, about how she discards or stores aborted human remains. Robinson, who said she has performed abortions as late as 20 weeks into a pregnancy, accused Roy of using “inflammatory language.” 

The congressman later inquired about a 2015 Center for Medical Progress video showing a Planned Parenthood executive in Houston discussing the purchase of fetal tissue, a federal felony. Roy also pressed Robinson about reports of abortion facilities storing remains in freezers or Pyrex dishes.

“The abortion industry operates under ‘see no evil, hear no evil, acknowledge no evil,’” the pro-life researcher told CP. “Yet in the real world, real abortion doctors handle aborted baby body parts in gruesome and unethical ways.”

Longbons provided five examples of what she views as alarming disposal and storage practices at abortion clinics nationwide. Read the list on the next page.
