Skip to comments.Two UK hospitals incinerated the remains of dead babies for heat

Another 10 hospitals incinerated remains as part of standard garbage disposal protocol. Treat the unborn as “medical waste” and don’t be surprised when some facilities take that idea to its logical conclusion.
The Telegraph’s headline implies that incineration was reserved for aborted babies, as some sort of final ghoulish indignity for the unwanted, but the story says the policy was broader than that. Miscarried fetuses ended up being burned too.
Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded totally unacceptable.…
One of the countrys leading hospitals, Addenbrookes in Cambridge, incinerated 797 babies below 13 weeks gestation at their own waste to energy plant. The mothers were told the remains had been cremated.
Another waste to energy facility at Ipswich Hospital, operated by a private contractor, incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013.
They were brought in from another hospital before being burned, generating energy for the hospital site. Ipswich Hospital itself disposes of remains by cremation.
How do you process this story if you’re a pro-choicer? I can imagine three camps. One is the “so what?” group. If “life” doesn’t begin until viability (or birth, for the hardcore abortion warrior), then yeah, this is medical waste. You don’t cremate tumors, do you? Toss it in the incinerator. Next is the group that wants to distinguish between miscarried babies and the aborted. The parents of the former saw a life in the making even if pro-choicers didn’t; the remains should thus be treated with due decorum, as a consolation to the bereaved. The remains of the aborted needn’t be similarly respected. Finally, there’s the group that’s uncomfortable with treating fetal remains as waste (or fuel) under any circumstances. I don’t know how to square that with the idea that life begins at viability, though. To do it, you need to move from the standard pro-choice position that what’s growing in the womb isn’t really “life” to the position that yes, okay, it’s human life, but abortion is a form of justifiable homicide. Then you can treat the remains with the dignity due, say, an executed prisoner. But most pro-choicers are obviously reluctant to make that move; once you concede that a life is at stake, you’re on dangerous ground politically.
Anyway, question for our three lefty readers: Which group are you in?
Seems in Europe they’ve used this method of ...heating in various ways...
Every cremation line is complete of a system of heat energy recovery that helps the reduction of the CO emissions and the global warming. The heat recovered is used for the heating of the buildings...
Forgot to add.
Hitler would be proud
Believe it or not but years ago I read a book (title long forgotten) that claimed exactly that was happening. Abortionist were selling fetal remains to pig farmers in order to make an extra buck. Given the abortion community's complete lack of moral standards and indifference to what they are actually doing, I do not find this unreasonable; and have been leery of eating any pork products since ( the author said this was a fulfillment of a prophecy in Habbakuk but I haven't got time right now to look for the verse).
Does anyone really think a Kermit Gosnell would be above this sort of thing?
Sick, very sick... They should be buried not burned. May those babies souls be cared for by GOD.
Sounds like something right out of Huxley’s “Brave New World.” We have arrived.
please Lord, save us from ourselves...
This story literally made me physically ill this morning. Much of humankind is becoming worst then animals. I can’t imagine how this must grieve the heart of the Lord and make Him angry.
By all means let’s save the planet by using a non-renewable energy source. /sarc
That’s just beyond sick.
