    What to Know

    • A woman found a card with a picture of an aborted fetus inside a box of diapers she bought from a King of Prussia Wegmans store.

    • A spokesperson for Wegmans said similar cards were found in other products sold at the store and an investigation is underway.

    • The card includes the URL of the website for the group "Abolish Human Abortion" though it's unknown who placed the cards in the products.

    An investigation is underway after photos of aborted fetuses were found in products sold at a Wegmans store in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

    Annie Fuhrman Weiss posted on Facebook that she bought a pack of Luvs diapers from the Wegmans store Sunday. When she opened the box Monday morning, she found a card with the words, “God hates the hands that shed innocent blood,” on one side and a picture of an aborted fetus on the other.

    The card also included the URL of the website for the group Abolish Human Abortion.

    “I don’t think Luvs put this in their boxes,” Weiss said. “I think it was some psycho, crazy, anti-abortion person who slipped it into these open handles here.”

    A spokesperson for Wegmans told NBC10 a report was also made over the weekend when a card showing an aborted fetus was found in a box of iced tea at the same King of Prussia location.

    Employees searched the store and found ten other cards showing aborted fetuses in other products, the spokesperson said. 

    Wegmans staff members don’t know how the cards got into the boxes and their security team is currently investigating. The spokesperson also said there haven’t been reports of similar incidents at other Wegmans locations.

    NBC10 reached out to Abolish Human Abortion for comment. We have not yet heard back from them.

    The group describes themselves as "abolitionists" rather than "pro-lifers."

    "Pro-life is the expression of a moral opinion. Abolition is the expression of a moral action," they wrote on their website. "When you call yourself “pro-life” you are letting people know what you think about abortion. When you call yourself an abolitionist, you are telling them what you aim to do about it."
