Several hundred fetuses were buried Sunday at a Boulder Roman Catholic church on the anniversary of the legalization of abortion 32 years ago.
The service was nearly interrupted when a state representative questioned its legality.
The church had expected to bury many more fetuses but the Boulder abortion clinic requested that babies cremated in November be returned to the mortuary and the church honored that request.
State Representative Debbie Stafford warned the church they may be violating a state law that requires unclaimed remains to be held for at least a year.
The service went on as planned.
