So Much For 'It Can't Happen Here'; Fetal Waste Turned Into Energy in Oregon
NewsBusters ^ | April 23, 2014 | By Tom Blumer

Posted on 04/24/2014 12:48:44 PM PDT by kingattax

A month ago, the UK Telegraph reported that "The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as 'clinical waste' by hospitals in Britain with some used in 'waste to energy' plants."

Prolife news sites and blogs as well as many other center-right outlets covered the story. The establishment press almost completely ignored it.

Matt Balan of NewsBusters noted on March 26 that the story "got picked up by newspapers across much of the Anglosphere – including The Vancouver Sun and The Ottawa Citizen in Canada," but that it did not "receive wide coverage in the United States." More like barely any, with the only TV broadcast exception at the time being a segment on Fox News's The Five.

Perhaps the non-coverage excuse was "Well, that's the UK. It could never happen here." That excuse was lame anyway, and now it's no longer operative (go to Page 3 at the B.C. Catholic link; story by Steve Weatherbe):

I’m guessing by the media silence that Obama doesn’t mind aborted fetuses being incinerated, but does not want the public to get that idea, or am I being illogical?

Incinerated for energy, that is . . .

I have it on good authority that the abortion industry uses fetuses in even more evil ways, too appalling to describe.

But maybe it produces less CO2 than coal. So what’s the problem?

We deserve everything the Chicoms or the Ruskies can dish out.

What is the ideal that we would defend the country from?

Freedom? Nope. Life? Nope. Economic freedom? Nope. Self government? Nope.

The Byzantine Empire fell when the people that lived their no longer thought it was worth saving.

“The classes and the races too weak to master the new conditions of life must give way.... They must perish in the revolutionary holocaust.”

- Karl Marx (Marx People’s Paper, 1856)

Killing babies, then burning them for energy is something all socialists are proud of. So, you pinko commie pro-abortion pricks in this nation, STAND UP AND BE COUNTED WITH THE ENEMY!!!

Why are leftists outraged? Isn’t it lust tissue? Who wants to be punished with that?

Hold them to their crap. It’s just medical waste or it ain’t. Why is burning a severed adult arm OK? And a dead baby isn’t? It isnt even a baby I was told so WHAT is the PROBLEM????

This slippery slope into evil has always been predicted and known. Cicero predicted the collapse of cultures when Law ceases to be “Just” (promote virtue).

It is just a matter of “how long”....because it is inevitable, when you allow Evil to exist, like abortion, actually promoting it through “Just” Law. It is unconstitutional and all the Justices know it. It is Satanic Ethics, not the American “Justice” system, they are promoting.

Justice is the “Queen of Virtue”-—you only promote “Virtue” in Just Law AND all laws that promote Evil or Vice are unconstitutional....it is very simple, actually. Our “Virtue” system is the Christian one (not Marx’s)-—where human beings are never allowed to be used as a “Means” to an End. NEVER.

It is time we return to American’s “Justice” system. All unjust laws are supposed to be declared “Null and Void” (John Marshall).

Abortion is horrific enough,, It is mind-boggling how any human being could think burning their remains for fuel is okay.

that a word combination such as “fetal waste” can exist is in itself a crime against humanity.

Is it OK to incinerate a blastocyst?, an embryo?, an fetus?, if your not generating power?

If you don't incinerate, do you send it to a hazardous waste landfill or the city dump

Or should these remains be placed in tiny coffins and buried or cremated.

What is the protocol?

Get over it ,, the incineration isn’t the problem ... at that point the baby has been dead for a long time and incineration is a better end than being sent through a medical waste decontamination unit (giant microwave oven) and thrown in a landfill for the seagulls and rats to eat .. the problem is in allowing them to be killed in the first place.

Here's the alternative ,, it has a grinder/pulverizer on the front end , continuous feed of medical/infectuous waste and operates by microwave.. you basically dump everything in and hit the "reheat" button ,, after that process you have waste that is landfill safe..

"Fetal Waste Turned Into Energy in Oregon"

The nazi's probably imagined some variation of this concept but probably didn't last long enough to pursue it. That was apparently left to their successors.
