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

"She said rubbish was not disposed of at the same time as foetal tissue and the incinerator was booked in advance.

A white sheet is placed over the front of the furnace and the process is witnessed by two members of staff working in bereavement care.

In a statement, the hospital added: 'The arrangements Addenbrooke's has in place to dispose of unwanted foetal tissue comply with the recommendations of the Retained Organs Commission (ROC).

'Following the termination of unwanted pregnancy, foetal tissue is disposed of within the hospital incinerator in a sensitive and respectful manner.

'The incinerator is cleared of all other material, and no other waste is dealt with at the same time as the foetal tissue.

'The process is organised and witnessed by two members of staff who are specialists in bereavement care'."

Why are there specialists in bereavement care having to organize and witness the incineration of fetal tissue????

James Slack continues writing that "One local woman, who asked not to be named, said after the heartache of deciding to have an abortion she was mortified to find the hospital had used the same furnace they burn rubbish in to incinerate her terminated baby.

She said: "I am furious and very hurt. Imagine my horror when I discovered that my baby was incinerated in the same furnace as the hospital rubbish."

Talk about misdirected grief - obviously she didn't read the memo about babies who are aborted are classified as tissue. . .

This insane use of "careful and politically correct" language to camouflage murder is ridiculous!

My heart goes to that mother - but only so far - she has to take responsibility that her baby, (yes, she said HER BABY) was killed and THEN incinerated.

You're putting this all into an "us" and "them" category. Many women who choose abortion weren't leftist. My mother wasn't when she had an abortion as a teenager. She was pro-life.

Looking at the demographics, the number one reason given for having an abortion is that the woman can't afford the child. They believe they don't have a choice and don't feel adoption is a viable option. Rather than being angry with them, I prefer to encourage birth control in the first place and push for policies that improve life for low income families (If these women believe they will become single mothers, lets make sure that it doesn't look like the overwhelming challenge that it currently appears to be.) to start with. Like funding daycares. More affordable health/dental/vision coverage. Up the minimum wage etc...

I agree that abortion is murder. But the idea of these young women going back to dark alley abortions is much too frightening (Resulting in the death of both mother and child.) to ever vote for banning abortion. I'd rather see the role of wife and mother given higher social status and encouraged. Abortion is happening in such high numbers because the traditional role of women has been disregarded.
