Where's the outcry?

There was a huge prochoice outcry when a church in Colorado held funeral services for cremated fetuses. Women screamed from the housetops how violated they felt that their fetuses had been somehow abused in this way. They screamed that they'd been betrayed and their privacy violated. But there's no outcry over the hundreds of fetuses found in a garage near Pittsburgh.

These women were promised that their fetuses would be cremated, but instead they were left to rot in a garage. Where's the outcry? I'm waiting. But I get the feeling I'll be waiting a long time. The only prochoice outcry over improper disposition of fetal remains is when somebody gives them a decent burial. But where's the outcry over these cases:

Two ex-employees of abortionist Jesse Floyd told news reporter they quit after being asked to flush aborted fetuses with recognizable limbs down garbage disposal at his The Ladies Clinic.

An employee of William Malcom Knarr reported that she found a four-inch fetus in the garbage disposal at his clinic. (Source: Affidavit of S.M. dated 10-22-92)

Sidney Knight got in trouble when the Department of Public Works reported that fetuses were disposed of by grinding them and flushing them into the sanitary sewer system. (Source: - DPW letter 12-29-89)

Abortionist Curtis Stover filed an affidavit stating that he vomited after observing abortionist James Park's method of disposing of aborted fetuses of 15 to 22 weeks gestation: he ground them up with a standard kitchen meat grinder and flushed the tissue down the sink. In a letter to the health department, Stover stated that Parks told him he had developed this method because the fetuses would "stop up" the toilet and because he did not want fetuses retrieved from the trash by pro-lifers. (Sources: letter by Stover dated 6-15-92, affidavit by Stover dated 6-15-92; Up The Creek 9-11-92; excerpt from Parks' deposition 2-4-91 Arapahoe County District Court Case No. 90CV432)

A Delaware plumber reportedly told investigators that he installed an "industrial gauge" garbage disposal at Brandywine Valley Women's Center. Employees told investigators that they routinely flushed 8 - 20 week fetuses down the disposal. Director Eric Harrah was reportely fined $43,000 after amitting that he allowed fetuses to be flushed down the garbage disposal at Brandywine and its affiliated Delta Women's Clinic, a National Abortion Federation member facility. (Sources: Wilmington News Journal 12-3-94, 12-4-93, 12-15-93, 8-22-93, 4-16-94, Philadelphia Inquirer 7-11-93)

Abortionist Lawson Akpulonu got in trouble after, among other things, the Medical Board found: "Employees were trained to dump tissue jars into the sink and run the contents through the garbage disposal." (Source: Medical Board Accusation No. D-5286 OAH. No. L-63123)

Hm? I'm waiting....
