VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 23, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The British Columbia Health Ministry has admitted that the remains of babies destroyed by abortion in B.C. facilities are ending up in a waste-to-power facility in the United States, providing electricity for residents of Oregon.
The province’s Health Ministry said in an email to the B.C. Catholic that “biomedical waste” shipped to the U.S. to be incinerated includes “human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs, and fetal tissue.”
“The ministry understands that some is transferred to Oregon. There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant,” the email stated.
The ministry said that contractors handling the province’s “biomedical waste” follow “health and safety protocols, as well as federal, provincial, and local regulations.”
Kristan Mitchell, executive director of the Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association, told the B.C. Catholic that the “biomedical waste” likely ends up at the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility in Oregon since it is the only facility that uses waste to power the grid. The facility confirmed that it still receives and incinerates B.C. medical waste.
The power facility, located in Brookes just off the I-5, burns waste in two massive boilers at a temperature of about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat transfers into water tubes, which creates steam to drive turbines. The turbines generate electricity.
A 2007 article about the Marion waste-to-energy facility that appeared in the Willamette Live — ironically titled “Burn, Baby, Burn” — stated that at the time the incinerator burned about 800 tons (1,764,000 pounds) of medical waste per year.
“Medical waste is brought to the facility in sealed boxes and is carried to the furnace on a conveyor belt which layers it with the rest of the solid waste being processed,” the article states.
Locals at the time protested the “importation and burning of medical waste,” expressing concern about breathing “toxic emissions.”
The news comes one month after the remains of more than 15,000 aborted babies were found to have been incinerated, along with other “medical waste,” to heat and generate power for British hospitals.

I hope to God this is not true, its all over twitter, they are burning the bodies of aborted babies for electricity..I think Im going to be sick
Knew it was happening here. disgusting.
The shining tophet set on a hill. It WILL draw attention.
If it is true, we have reached soylent green and mancorn levels of degeneration. I am queasy too.
The elderly and infirm are next.
The liberals have been hoping for renewable energy for years, now they have it.
Bloody hands across the border.
OMG - speechless...
What I hope for; That The Pope will come out to publicize and forcefully condemn the very consideration, let alone the practice of using aborted fetuses as Bio-Waste Fuel, BY ANYONE, EVER! Most people would not believe you today if you described this to them. Only news hounds like us have much knowledge of it. I wish I didn’t know.
What I expect; RINOs, or their chubby daughters will defend doing this, saying, we are distracting from the big fight which is Obama Care. The Pope is not likely to address this until it becomes an unavoidable news event that happens with great frequency. Obama will never address it as something to be alarmed about, unless one of his deep pockets donors refuses to give more money if the carnage continues without naming, shaming and swift prosecution.
You know what folks, I’d like to see the environmental impact statement on this...
At first I really thought it was a sick joke, then read about it and realized it was true..I dont know what is happening to our society butt his is by far the sickest, most disgusting thing I have EVER heard of..EVER
When this happened in Great Britain, how many people said or thought “It will never happen here.” It was happening here all along.
I am physically ill. Seriously.
We truly are worshiping Moloch.
Just make sure you fill out your voter registration card and hand it to the OfA worker on your way into the incinerator...
Why don’t the abortions themselves make you physically ill? They do me.
