Holy Hormones Journal: What is happening to our humanity? The Pro Life movement has been adamant that abortion would cheapen the sanctity of live. Were they right? Incinerating the innocent?
Or is history repeating itself. We cannot forget the incineration of thousands of innocent Jews in Nazi-Germany. Death is death. Life is life. Of course incinerating innocent babies is a crime against humanity. But lets keep in mind all of the other crimes against humanity before we condemn a woman’s right to choose whether or not to carry a pregnancy to term.
This is an act of the hospital; a system- not the act of an individual. I do not know of any woman who would sign an informed consent stating that her aborted baby would be disposed of via incineration.
Perhaps we need to revisit how these innocents are handled post-abortion. Should a mother have a right to bury her fetus herself? Thank goodness for the Human Tissue Authority who will review the issue.
Infanticide and Gendercide
May I remind you that if women had an equal say in this world… equal rights and equal respect, the abortion industry as it exists now and what I call ‘legalized rape on women,’ would no longer be legal. There are so many more less-damaging and evasive ways to terminate a pregnancy at an early stage… right after a missed period or on the first day of expected menstruation than the horrific traumatizing experience that women are forced to go through now. This procedure is known as Menstrual Extraction and has been used by midwives and women assisting women for decades.
Let’s not confuse a broken misogynistic hospital policy with a woman’s right to choose.
Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals
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.
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.
The programme, which will air tonight, found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.
One of the country’s leading hospitals, Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge, incinerated 797 babies below 13 weeks gestation at their own ‘waste to energy’ plant. The mothers were told the remains had been ‘cremated.’
Another ‘waste to energy’ facility at Ipswich Hospital, operated by a private contractor, incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013.
They were brought in from another hospital before being burned, generating energy for the hospital site. Ipswich Hospital itself disposes of remains by cremation.
“This practice is totally unacceptable,” said Dr Poulter.
“While the vast majority of hospitals are acting in the appropriate way, that must be the case for all hospitals and the Human Tissue Authority has now been asked to ensure that it acts on this issue without delay.”
