    The Facts

    • Congressional Republicans are demanding an investigation into the circumstances surrounding five fetuses obtained by the pro-life activist group, Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU). How PAAU obtained the fetuses is unclear.

    • Earlier this week, nearly two dozen members of Congress sent DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and the city's chief of police a letter demanding an investigation be launched into whether the fetuses had been subject to illegal abortions.

    The Spin

    Right narrative

    It's reprehensible that police are refusing to investigate this. This wouldn't be the first time a Washington doctor was accused of at least endorsing partial-birth abortions; the least the state can do to honor both the children and the law is to conduct immediate and thorough autopsies.

    Left narrative

    The fetuses have already been examined and were found to be aborted in accordance with DC law. Authorities are right to instead focus on how they came into the hands of activists charged with threatening and intimidating women seeking legal and constitutionally protected abortions.
