Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has promised to convene hearings on behalf of five newborns whose remains were found at an abortion facility by pro-life advocates.
In a letter to Muriel Bowser, the Democratic mayor of Washington, D.C., Cruz said the D.C. Metropolitan Police were compelled to investigate the babies’ killings in his role as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on the Constitution.
He wrote, “It is an obvious injustice that these infants may have been killed or aborted in breach of the law. The District of Columbia government agencies that this Congress supervises are reluctant to investigate and may instead erase all evidence.”
“It looks as though the Metropolitan Police Department has presumptively determined the cause and character of these children’s deaths.”
“It has been brought to my notice recently that the District of Columbia may burn the corpses of these five children without completing an investigation, performing examinations, or providing these children with an appropriate, respectful burial.”
Pro-life activists discovered a box allegedly containing 110 crushed first-trimester kids and five premie-sized babies from Washington Surgi-Clinic to Curtis Bay Medical Dump Site.
This is a facility that keeps insisting, despite photographs of its classifying on the box of aborted fetuses, that it does not combust fetal remains.

Cruz responded to the issue by stating if the Republican Party wins the Senate in the coming midterms, he will become Chairman of the Constitution Subcommittee.
As a result, he intends to schedule hearings on suspected breaches of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 and the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, such as those involving these five youngsters.
A Look Into the Industry
Cruz intends to hold hearings on “how this sector advertised faulty, one-sided studies, promoted declarations suggesting women cannot be legally equal or prosper in the place of work without the power to kill their babies in the womb,” and more.
“To be clear, the remnants of these five children are essential evidence in the congressional oversight process that the Subcommittee on the Constitution will undertake in the near future,” he stated.
“Should the Mayor’s Executive Office and the Metropolitan Police Department choose not to conduct prompt autopsies, this letter serves as notice that these remnants should not be damaged, incinerated, or disposed of, but rather respectfully preserved to allow Congress to conduct crucial and necessary oversight.”

The Supreme Court is now hearing arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case involving a Mississippi statute prohibiting abortions beyond 15 weeks of pregnancy.
As the justices prepare to hand down their decision, many politicians around the country are introducing proposals to outlaw abortion entirely, rather than limiting it through heartbeat statutes and gestational age cutoffs.
For instance, Texas State Representative Bryan Slaton (R) presented a measure that would “provide the right to life and equal protection of the laws to all innocent fetuses from conception.”
Slaton told The Daily Wire last year, “to halt the wholesale murder of innocent infants, states must be ready to stand up and prohibit it, with or without authorization from the court.”
