Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong urged the government to abandon the current practice of sending miscarried fetuses under 24 weeks to landfills as medical waste.

Under the laws of Hong Kong, infants older than 24 weeks are considered human and cannot be aborted, while abortions of less than 24 weeks are treated as medical waste.

Dominic Chan Chi Ming, the Father of the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong, he sobbed and said all babies are not a piece of waste.

“everyone should respect life, even it is just an embryo, it is a living body,” said Chan.

Chan organized ‘Angel Garden’ which is Hong Kong’s only burial site specially for fetuses under 24 weeks. “Every life is sacred,” Chan said.

“I had seen so many parents who lost their kids with huge pain because they couldn’t bury their baby. Since aborted fetuses were under 24 weeks so it can not be cremated. We built the Angels garden where they could place those aborted fetuses,” Chan said.

To Dicky Cheung Wai Kin, who lost his baby, said that a burial site has provided greater relief to his wife and him because they could mourn their unborn baby because of ‘Angel Garden’.

“My baby could have a home,” Cheung said.

Cheung said that is not harmful to the society or parents when government plan some land-use for parents buried miscarried babies.

“Hong Kong is a civilized society so we need these facilities to buried miscarried babies,” Cheung said.

“Not like those charity shows, building angels garden a real meaningful action, I would try my best to disseminate the angels garden to the society,” Cheung said.
