A Cemetery for Aborted Babies Under 24 weeks launched by next year, says Catholic Father


Reported by Ken Lam, 12th Mar,2019


A catholic graveyard named “Angel Garden” will be put in use assumingly by next year in Sha Tin Tao Fung Shan, says Chan in Hong Kong Shue Yan University.


“The Angel Garden is specifically for aborted babies under 24 weeks, giving them a place to be properly buried with human dignity. Under the current law of Hong Kong, the aborted babies under 24 weeks are considered as medical waste disposal. Their parents are not even allowed to take the corpse back to cremate or bury in a decent way. This is why we proposed the Angel Garden to the Government at the first place, we want them in peace, both the babies and the parents,” said Father Dominic Chan Chi Ming, who is Vicar General of the Hong Kong Catholic Diocese and the Parish Priest of the Hong Kong Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.


“Some might want to ask if they are not a catholic, could they have a chance to bury their kid in the Angel Garden. And I would just be frankly and flat out told them, if anyone came to me for help, the last thing went into my mind would definitely be they religion. Whether they are atheist, Jewish or Christian don’t bother me at all, the only thing I concerned would be how could I help them. Hence, the Angel Garden has no rules about the poor baby religious faith or that of their parents. We were just a bunch of Catholics who trying to lend a hand to people in need, and that’s all we wanted,” said Chan


The Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong is a Latin Rite ordinary diocese of the Catholic Church. There were about 384,000 local Catholics as of August 2015, and 160,000 Filipino Catholics in Hong Kong.
