Police find five fetuses in US anti-abortion activist's home  The world

Five fetuses were found in a house in Washington, DC United StatesPolice said it belonged to an anti-abortion activist.

Lauren Handy, 28, is one of the leaders of the Progressive Anti-Abortion Apprising (PAAU) group, which describes itself as a “Catholic anarchist”.

Police said they were looking for “potential biological hazards” when the embryos were found.

In another case, Handy was charged on Wednesday with forcing her to go to an abortion clinic in 2020.

Investigators took a photo of her outside the address as she removed items from bags and coolers from the basement. He told local news site WUSA9 that people would panic when they found out what was inside the seized container.

Washington police said they could not confirm whether the house where the embryos were found belonged to Handy. However, two police officers told the Washington Post that Handy’s arrest was the same residence where he lived or stayed.

“There does not seem to be any criminality in this house except how they got into it,” Assan Benedict, executive assistant to the Washington, D.C. Police Chief, told a news conference.

Handy recently claimed to have “gained access” to a bank of fetal tissues and organs at the University of Washington in Seattle, but the school said nothing was taken there.

After being indicted, Handy and eight other members of the group were charged with conspiracy to commit assault, harassment, intimidation, intimidation, and violating federal rights to seek and provide reproductive health services.

They are also accused of violating the Freedom of Access (Phase) Act for entry to the clinic by forcing them to interfere with clinic services.

If convicted, they face up to 11 years in prison and a fine of up to $ 350,000.
