About the Gravesite of 54 Aborted Children in Riverside, California
Day of Remembrance

In March of 1997, five boxes of unborn babies killed by abortion were found on the side of the road in Chino, California.
The babies were from a Los Angeles abortion clinic. The truck driver who dumped the fetuses served 71 days in jail and was deported and the operator of the clinic died before a civil suit against him was resolved.
A group of local Christians put in the hard work necessary to obtain the children's bodies from the state to give them a proper burial, which they did at Crestlawn Memorial Park on October 11, 1998.
Pat Duhalde, one of the organizers of the burial said "These children were discarded as waste and rubbish. We just wanted to give them a proper burial."
Regular memorial services have been held at the site since the burial.
