What Happens to Aborted Babies in UK Hospitals?

By In Blogs, C.Jay Engel

The Telegraph Reports:

The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.

Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.

Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded ‘totally unacceptable.’

At least 15,500 foetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s Dispatches discovered.

This is sick, an absolute disgrace and affront to the standards of God’s holiness.  One could hardly think of something more radically disgusting and aggravating.  It is bad enough that the world nearly trips over itself to publicly fund infant murders, but the sheer depravity of mankind is on full and wicked display in revelations like these.

Oh God have mercy on the Western World.

    Why is it “totally unacceptable?” It’s just flammable material, not a human body, right? I don’t get the logic.

      No, definitely human bodies. First two paragraphs. It’s terrible that they were first aborted then used like this.

      Unless you’re hinting at something else, and I’m just dull…

        Sorry, I meant to include “in their view.” It’s not a person, it’s just a mass of tissue which happens to be flammable. It would seem that using it to produce heat would be a perfectly logical and and “acceptable” thing to do.

          Ah! Yeah… I figured that’s what you were driving at. Just wanted to make sure. Sorry. But you’re absolutely right. To say that incineration of the material is somehow worse than the removal of that material from the womb is ridiculous. He has no basis to call it unacceptable.

          The logical implications of child-murder are disgusting.
