Whither the Foundling Hospital

Definition of Foundling Hospital: noun. A hospital where foundlings (infant children of unknown parents) are taken in and cared for.
I remember the year abortion became legal in New York State, before it became legal in the whole nation. I worked at the New York Foundling Hospital and it was not unusual for us to take in at least three or four newborns a week. Most were given up for adoption. After legalized abortion, we barely took in three babies a year. Only older children. It left me with a profound sadness to know what became of the babies.
From the comments section of the NCRegister article about the Archbishop of Denver, Samuel Aquila. Worth a read, along with Aquila's recent pastoral letter.

54,559,615 abortions in America since Roe v. Wade.
