According to sources close to the case, says the Washington Post, the Washington, D.C. Medical Examiner has no plans to autopsy the five fetuses that were found and removed from a woman’s basement last week.
Lauren Handy, an anti-abortion activist, was in possession of the five fetuses that a whistleblower had transferred to her by a worker at Washington Surgi-Clinic.
Handy is the director of the anti-abortion group Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU). The organization said on Thursday that Handy had taken the fetuses in order to turn them over to police because PAAU believed they had been illegally aborted at the clinic.
Officials believe the fetuses were aborted within the confines of the law, and that there was nothing illegal about them. For this reason, the Medical Examiner has no plans at this time to autopsy the fetuses retrieved from Handy’s basement apartment.
According to the Post, the medical examiner will reassess the decision if new information becomes available. The clinic has not commented on the incident.
