By Sakchai Lalit, AP
Thai police have arrested three people after the remains of more than 2,000 aborted fetuses were found in a Buddhist temple in Bangkok. One of those charged was paid about $16 for each fetus collected from illegal abortion clinics.
Abortion is illegal in Thailand except in cases when delivery would harm the mother or the pregnancy resulted from rape.
Police found 1,654 fetuses today in two new mortuary rooms and 348 earlier in the week in another room, the Bangkok Post reports. The remains were wrapped in white plastic bags, and some had been at the temple for a year.
Buddhist temples in Thailand perform cremation ceremonies and store bodies in refrigerated areas.
