"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.
