A premature baby born at exclusively 20 weeks was discovered by a passerby in Brooklyn across the street from a junior high school, according to authorities.
“It’s crazy. It’s awesome. Shocking and disheartening, ” witness Veronica Sexton told the New York Post. “I came in and told my mother, there is a bag with bloody clothes, I’m gonna call the cops, it doesn’t look right. She came outside to look at it and she said to just leave it.”
Orlando Redi, another passerby who spotted the infant, “says hes” first experienced the body at around 5 a.m. while out for a morning walk.
“There was no blood around it, so she didn’t have it there, ” said Reid. “It’s a sad case. I wish whoever the woman that did it, did it differently. Hopefully, the person whose child it is get help.”
While the discovery was sad, a group of kind-hearted NYPD police officers have given the story a redemptive twist by impart the premature baby a respectable burial–in the very state that has been under fire for its brand-new late-term abortion law.
Six NYPD policemen behaved as pallbearers for the deceased newborn named “Baby Monica” at the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
“A 20 -weeks fetus acquired discarded on a Brooklyn street received a proper funeral on Saturday, ” tweeted pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha. “At the funeral the babe had 6 pallbearers who are NYPD police officers. Note that at 20 weeks it is perfectly legal to abort& throw this newborn into medical litter bin.”

The funeral organisations were orchestrated by Life Center of New York, a pro-life organization that helps women in crisis.
“We were moved to do something for this baby, ” said Life Center’s executive director. “We called the police department and asked them if they could assist us and accompany us. And the church so liberally said they would do a mass for us.”
“We want to show that there are people out here that care for life and respect life, ” he contributed. “That’s basically what we want to do. We want to give her the dignity that she should have in death, that she didn’t have.”
Baby Monica was placed to rest at Resurrection Cemetery in a’ guardian angel’ plot reserved for deceased babes who have been abandoned.
In a petition on their website, Life Center requested the public to pray for Baby Monica’s mother, and other mommas who have been in her shoes.
The statement read: “Please remember to pray for Baby Monica’s mother who, like Baby Monica and countless others, is a victim of the culture of extinction that has darkened our municipality, commonwealth and nation.”
