Part I: Hospital admits to burning aborted babies in waste incinerator

An article by James Slack at the UK's The Daily Mail writes "One of the country's leading hospitals is throwing aborted babies into the same incinerator used for rubbish to save only £18.50 each time, it has emerged.

Addenbrooke's Hospital, in Cambridge, said it was no longer able to afford the dignified disposal at a local crematorium of foetuses from unwanted pregnancies.

Instead, they are being burnt in the hospital's main incinerator - which is normally used for rubbish and clinical waste.

The revelation sparked anger and distress among church leaders and pro-life groups, as well as women whose pregnancies were terminated at the hospital."

Well, I'm confused. If the babies weren't "babies" to begin with, why are the women whose pregnancies were terminated at the hospital upset?????

Notice the author of the article didn't say pregnant women who chose to have their babies aborted.

These are women who have made the decision to terminate their pregnancies on at least some level that what is being destroyed is just tissue. Tissue that they themselves have chosen someone to remove and dispose.
