Odd Fellows Cemetery (Los Angeles)
Odd Fellows Cemetery is a cemetery in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. It is notable for specializing in cremation of obese individuals, especially those over 400 pounds (180 kg).
In 1985, 16,433 aborted fetuses were buried in unmarked graves at the cemetery on donated land. The fetuses were found in a shipping container in Woodland Hills, California in February 1982, and a three-year dispute over their burial ensued. The dispute reached the Supreme Court, who ruled the remains must be buried in a nonreligious ceremony. The burial included a eulogy by President Ronald Reagan, which was read at the 7 October 1985 service by Michael D. Antonovich.
