Baby’s Body Abandoned in Cemetery

What happened here?

OMAHA, Neb. – Council Bluffs police are investigating a fetus abandoned in cemetery Saturday.

A couple walking in the Cedar Lawn Cemetery made the discovery in the crest lawn section and they called Council Bluffs police.

An autopsy was performed on the fetus at 10 a.m. Monday Investigators said it was a 17-week-old male.

“We have a fetus; we believe it’s about 17 weeks in term and it’s possibly been outside for two weeks,” said Sgt. Jerry Mann, of the Council Bluffs Police Department.

My heart breaks thinking about him being abandoned. Understandably this could have been a miscarriage, but to abandon the child’s body in a cemetery (obviously he hadn’t been buried as a couple happened upon his body as they were walking) invokes such sadness in me.

I can’t help but think those who rally to allow women to suck their babies out of the womb and into a sink has had some influence on the woman who abandoned this baby. Human life should mean more than this.
