Archdiocese creates fund to bury Gosnell’s young victims

    The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has announced it will set up a fund, which people can donate to, to host a proper memorial and burial service for the newborn victims of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.

    A Daily News article says the idea came about from a DN column, which expressed the public’s concern for the final resting place of the babies. Though it had already begun planning a service for the infants, the Archdiocese has since opened the fund to donations.

    Once the trial against Gosnell is over, the Infant Memorial Fund will help cover costs of a public mass and proper burial for the babies.

    You can send donations to Room 830, 222 N. 17th St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19103.
