Waste-to-Energy: Oregon Uses Aborted Babies to Generate Electricity

Last month, I wrote about how the UK was using medical waste, including aborted babies, as an energy source to heat their hospitals. About 15,500 aborted babies were used over the last 2 years to help generate electricity. I wondered how long before the U.S. did the same thing, or if we already have. Apparently, we’ve already latched on to that practice. From Life Site News:

The British Columbia Health Ministry has admitted that the remains of babies destroyed by abortion in B.C. facilities are ending up in a waste-to-power facility in the United States, providing electricity for residents of Oregon.

The province’s Health Ministry said in an email to theB.C. Catholic that “biomedical waste” shipped to the U.S. to be incinerated includes “human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs, and fetal tissue.”

“The ministry understands that some is transferred to Oregon. There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant,” the email stated.

The ministry said that contractors handling the province’s “biomedical waste” follow “health and safety protocols, as well as federal, provincial, and local regulations.”

Kristan Mitchell, executive director of the Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association, told the B.C. Catholic that the “biomedical waste” likely ends up at the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility in Oregon since it is the only facility that uses waste to power the grid. The facility confirmed that it still receives and incinerates B.C. medical waste.

If someone like Nancy Pelosi were to comment on this, I’m sure she’d feel politically obligated to condemn it, as she did with Kermit Gosnell. But in order for her to be consistent, she shouldn’t object to incinerating aborted fetuses as an energy source. It’s not like they’re people. Just like she had no real reason to condemn Gosnell. If anything, she should applaud this Oregon waste-to-energy facility for adopting a green energy approach and for being in favor of clean air and clean water. Just like she should congratulate Gosnell for being a civil servant.
