The  Hong Kong Catholic Diocese (HKCD) has approved five of the cemeteries in the Garden of Remembrance and that foetuses less than 24 weeks are allowed to be buried inside, says Chen.

The Catholic Cemetery Committee applied to the HKCD earlier and set up six places in the cemetery to bury the abortion, said Chen Chi Ming at an assembly at Shue Yan University today.

The process of negotiations on the Garden of Remembrance between the parish and the Government was still smooth, said Chen.

In Hong Kong, if a foetus aged less than 24 weeks died, it was regarded as medical waste by the Hospital Authority. After having consultation with the Government by the Catholic Cemetery Committee, foetuses less than 24 weeks died finally allowed to be buried in the newly added Garden of Remembrance.

“If the public wants to bury abortion, at least one of the parents must be a Catholic. In other words, if the parents are not Catholic, there is still no relevant legislation,” said Chen.

Chen is the Vicar General of the Hong Kong Catholic Diocese. He is also the Parish Priest of the Hong Kong Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. In this office, he serves as Chairperson of the Diocesan Board of Catholic Cemeteries and many other boards. In recent years, Chen focused working on the Garden of Remembrance to comfort bereaved parents and their lost babies.

“There is a need to amend the law in the long run, so that parents who have less than 24 weeks of abortion have the right to choose,” said Chen.

In the Catholic position, according to the bible, all the conceived foetuses have become "human", and they should be legally buried, said Chen.
