DC police last week made an unsettling discovery at the home of a pro-life advocate who turned over the bodies of five babies reportedly born alive at a Washington DC abortion clinic, prompting calls for a medical investigation into whether the children’s deaths violated federal laws.
DC Metro police were summoned last Wednesday to the home of anti-abortion activist Lauren Handy, director of activism for the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), where she handed over five partially-birthed aborted babies’ bodies.
“People will freak out when they hear,” Handy told reporters at the scene.

Handy, who was arrested on March 30 on separate charges, said she received the dead babies from a whistleblower connected to the Washington Surgi-Clinic, an abortion center.
“Prior to the arrest, one of the defendants privately arranged for the Metropolitan Washington D.C. Police homicide unit to pick up five recently discovered late-term aborted babies for forensic examination,” PAAU wrote in a statement on their website.
According to PAAU, the babies’ “late gestational ages, as well as their apparent sustained injuries potentially, show violations of the Partial-Birth Abortion Act as well as the Born Alive Infants Protection Act which are federal crimes.”
Despite the possible federal violations, DC police have made no arrests, or filed any charges in connection with the discovery, with executive assistant DC Police Chief Ashan Benedict last Thursday claiming the babies were aborted “in accordance with DC law.”
The discovery has led to calls from pro-life advocates urging the DC medical examiner to conduct an investigation into whether the children could have survived the partial-births, and into whether any laws were violated.
On Tuesday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) added her voice to the growing chorus of outrage, saying, “The slaughter of innocent children is of course the logical endpoint to the left’s culture of death, in which women are warmly encouraged to kill the babies they ought to be nurturing and then brag about it afterwards.”
“Since baby-killing activists are now brazen enough to advocate for infanticide, it is right to ask whether these infants were victim of this new and bloodthirsty zeal for the deaths of innocents,” she said.

“What we need now is a full forensic examination to determine precisely how, why and when these blameless babies died, then the police must open a murder investigation if the bodies are found to have air, or preservative solution in the lungs. We need to hold the doctors concerned accountable.”
Similarly, national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser has issued calls for an investigation, saying:
“These horrific images of aborted children – human beings like us, subjected to lethal violence and possibly born alive at an age when their pain would have been excruciating – expose the brutality of every one of the thousands of abortions that take place daily in America. Despite legislatures across the country acting on the will of the people to advance more protections for unborn children and mothers in recent years than ever before, atrocities like these continue because of radical U.S. policy that allows abortion on demand up to the moment of birth. How many times must we be confronted with the truth? As the great abolitionist William Wilberforce said about the slave trade, ‘You may choose to look the other way but you can never again say you did not know.’
“We call on the D.C. medical examiner to do an autopsy of these children’s bodies and for federal authorities to perform a thorough, unsparing investigation and prosecute violations of the law. Ending abortion is the human rights battle of our time and we hope that a just Supreme Court decision in the Dobbs case soon allows all states to take action.”
According to LifeNews, the clinic in question has a history of performing abortions late into the second trimester, when a fetus is generally considered to be viable.
The Washington Surgi-Clinic “advertises abortions up to 27 weeks of pregnancy, and turned them over to police. The facility’s late-term abortionist Cesare Santangelo has been caught on video stating that he would not intervene to save a baby who survived an abortion. Washington, D.C. has no gestational limits on abortion,” reports LifeNews.
A medical expert specializing in infants consulted by Live Action News said the babies could indeed have lived had they been properly cared for.
“I can say with confidence that these babies died at an age when they were viable, premature people,” said Neonatologist Dr. Robin Pierucci.

Pro-life advocate and founder of Live Action Lila Rose shared shocking graphic photos of the deceased babies.
Commenting on “Baby boy 1,” Dr. Kathi Aultman, a former abortionist, described to LifeNews that the infant appeared “completely normal” and could very well have been born alive.

“Baby Boy #1 appears to be in the 3rd trimester near term and looks like he should have been in the nursery. He is totally intact, but his skin is somewhat macerated. He appears to be completely normal and was probably aborted using the induction method, which uses medication to induce labor. He looks about the same size as my granddaughter when she was born.”
Likewise, “Baby Girl #1” also could have been a viable birth were it not for an incision made in the back of its neck.

“Baby Girl #1 appears to be in the late 2nd or early 3rd trimester. She appears intact and completely normal except for trauma to the neck. There appears to be an incision at the base of the skull, and the head has been decompressed. If the baby was alive at the start of this procedure, it would be considered a Partial-Birth Abortion and would be illegal. She is larger than most of the babies I cared for in the NICU, and if the abortion hadn’t killed her, she would have had a decent chance of survival at this gestational age and size.”
Here are photos of the other three babies recovered by DC Metro police, with one horifically ripped into tiny pieces, and another still inside his or her amniotic sac.

Baby number 4 is estimated to be about 28 weeks old and is still in the amniotic sac. We cannot tell this baby's gender. Since the baby is still in their sac, the likelihood that the child was born alive and then killed is extremely high. That would be a federal crime. 5/ pic.twitter.com/BveKLi1BRr— Lila Rose (@LilaGraceRose) April 1, 2022

Grimes Auctioning Off Her Met Gala Accessories to Support BIPOC Families in Ukraine
Couture for a cause.
Grimes is doing her part to support the Black, Indigenous and people of color of Ukraine by auctioning off some of her most memorable fashion accessories.
“I’m auctioning stuff from my Met gala look last year to raise money to help get BIPOC families out of Ukraine since they’re having trouble exiting at the border,” she shared in an Instagram post on May 16, adding that the auction on display at Los Angeles’ HVW8 Gallery includes “the works of 50 distinguished artists who aim to support Emergency Response & BIPOC families in and out of Ukraine.”
Explaining that each piece in the auction “offers a unique interpretation of the theme ‘resistance,'” Grimes donated a whimsical pair of earcuffs, designed by Romantic Elf Jewelry, and a chrome CHRISHABANA x Dune Harkonnen face mask.
The experimental musician wore the pieces to the 2021 Met Gala back in September, along with a sheer Iris Van Herpen gown, for the event’s “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” theme. Her look — which was inspired by the 1984 cult classic “Dune” (and subsequent 2021 remake) based on Frank Herbert’s novel — also included a replica Medieval sword repurposed from a Colt AR-15A3.
The weapon, however, is not up for auction, as it’s “a permanent piece” of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection.
See some of the top looks from the 2021 Met Gala.
All proceeds from the auction will go to non-profit organizations Diaspora Relief and Razom for Ukraine, which will use the funds to provide food, shelter, and evacuation support to those in need, the “Genesis” singer explained. Bidding is open exclusively on Artsy and will start closing on May 26.
Grimes, 34 — who shares two children with ex Elon Musk — is just one of many celebs who has made efforts to help Ukraine amid Russia’s recent invasion. In March, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis shared a video on Instagram to announce that they had achieved their goal of raising $30 million to help the European country.
“Over 65,000 of you donated,” shared Kunis, who moved from Ukraine to the United States in 1991. “We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the support. While this is far from [solving] the problem, our collective effort will provide a softer landing for so many people as they forge ahead into their future of uncertainty.”
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have reached their donation goal of $30 million for Ukraine amid the Russia invasion. The couple took to Instagram on Thursday to share the exciting news.

15 electric buses OK’d for South Dade Transitway
Written by Gabriela Henriquez Stoikow on May 17, 2022
Miami-Dade keeps expanding its electric bus fleet, with a new buy of 15 buses to roll down the South Dade Transitway starting in August 2023.
Commissioners on Tuesday OK’d a grant pact with the Florida Department of Transportation to get the 60-foot electric buses for a $17.47 million total cost, of which the state is to pay $8.7 million and the county the remainder from half-penny transit surtax funds. Kionne McGhee cast the only ‘no’ vote.
The South Dade Transitway Corridor is one of the six rapid transit corridors of the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan. The 19.8-mile route runs from Dadeland South Metrorail station along US 1 to SW 344th Street.
The bus buy is part of an active solicitation of 100 60-foot electric buses, a memo from Chief Operations Officer Jimmy Morales details. “These are articulated buses with more passenger capacity,” said Luis Espinoza, transportation department spokesperson.
The Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization Governing Board OK’d an amendment to the Transportation Improvement Program last week to include new federal funding to buy ten battery-powered electric buses.
The county has been shifting toward electric power since 2019, when commissioners agreed to buy 33 battery-electric buses and install depot chargers from Proterra. In 2021 the county bought 42 more buses, bringing total electric-powered transit buses to 75.
The shipment of 33 electric buses will begin to arrive in July, followed by another 42 from October through January 2023, Mr. Espinoza said. “Upon the full delivery of the 75 vehicles, DTPW will run one of the largest fleets of 40-foot battery-powered electric buses in the United States.”
The department is now testing for service its first-ever all-electric bus, Mr. Espinoza added.
Proterra battery-electric buses feature zero tailpipe emissions, saving about 230,000 pounds of greenhouse gases a year when replacing a diesel bus, a county press note says.
Rickenbacker Causeway bike safety fast-tracked
Written by Gabriela Henriquez Stoikow on May 17, 2022
Miami-Dade commissioners seek immediate action to protect cyclists just days after a Jeep SUV fatally injured two bicyclists on the Rickenbacker Causeway.
Commissioners Tuesday brainstormed actions and agreed to discuss cyclists’ safety in a Transportation Mobility Committee meeting June 7. Raquel Regalado and Eileen Higgins said they would craft a proposal and Ms. Higgins asked Mayor Daniella Levine Cava for immediate actions beforehand.
Commissioners proposed immediately erecting barricades in high-incident areas and having tough conversations about funding needed improvements. For the long term, they said, the county should target federal and private funds and begin teaching people of all ages to respect cyclists.
“I am directing our department immediately to take urgent measures; I have in my authority up to $250,000 that we will be using for short-term bicyclist safety enhancement measures on the Rickenbacker, exactly at the places that are most vulnerable,” the mayor said.
Key Biscayne Mayor Michael Davey said the county’s public works department is working with the village’s staff to develop a conceptual plan for the causeway.
“While we appreciate the discussions that are taking place concerning the short-term ways to improve safety along the causeway, we believe that it is critical to work together toward a long-term solution for the Rickenbacker,” he said.
Commissioner Regalado advocated barricades to protect cyclists in high-incident areas. “I don’t know what else is it going to take for us to take some immediate steps, so I would like the administration to respond to that,” she said.
Chairman Jose “Pepe” Díaz said enhancing the cyclist’s security is going to take time to study before the county starts spending money on solutions.
“The issue of protected bike lanes in this county it’s embarrassing how behind we are. I don’t know if we’re one decade, two decades or an entire century behind the rest of this country,” said Ms. Higgins.
She criticized that the county’s Vision Zero plan, whose aim is to eliminate all traffic-related deaths and serious injuries by 2030, “I think is an absolute joke.”
“I just think the cycling [tragedy] on the Rickenbacker Causeway is similar to gun violence in my neighborhood and around North Miami and Liberty City,” Commissioner Jean Monestime said. “We just don’t want to do what we’re supposed to do about these things. It costs a lot of money to solve these issues [and] it requires very tough decisions.”
Kionne McGhee argued for the temporary barricades to protect cyclists. “The temporary barricades, the partnership with someone on the outside, a private company or private donor, I think that needs to be done now.”
Vice Chairman Oliver Gilbert agreed. “If we can do things like barricades now, to make specific areas safer, which we know are high-incident areas, I think that we should do it because I would much rather explain why we moved quickly to do something than explain to someone that we move slowly and did nothing and someone else died,” he said.
Sen. Javier Souto advocated educating people of all ages to respect cyclists. “Bikers need to be respected, and that starts home and starts with the school,” he said.
At Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners approved a report by the mayor in which the Department of Transportation and Public Works identifies steps needed to replace the causeway’s Bear Cut Bridge, another needed infrastructure project without funds allocated yet for design or construction.
