Mercy! Church toilet yields chilling find
Three fetuses were found inside the toilet of a church in Novaliches, Quezon City, Saturday morning.
Flora Duran, a maintenance worker, was cleaning the women’s room at the Shrine of Our Lady of Mercy on Quirino Highway around 8 a.m. when she discovered the fetuses stuffed in a green shopping bag.
Novaliches police station investigators said the discovery raised the possibility that an abortionist was operating just within the community. “This is the first time we received a report of more than one fetus being dumped in one place,” said desk officer SPO2 Edward Samilin.—Jeannette I. Andrade
