The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.
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.
Hey, you can say a lot about the Nazis, but at least they didn’t cynically use the bodies of the innocent people they murdered as fire logs to warm their Teutonic hides on cold nights. Thanks, NHS (Brit ObamaCare), for once again living down to our expectations. There is nothing so horrid that a government run agency can’t make it even more horrible. And inefficient too!
That being said, we really can’t muster much of an outrage. Our outrage sort of got “triggered” (so can we go ballistic now and use our “triggering” as an excuse? That seems to be all the rage among ProgNazis these days) when the unborn child was slaughtered in the womb. It’s a bit hard to top that.
Besides, once an “enlightened”, “progressive” society gets done slaughtering their un-persons, which unborn children are classified as under ProgNazi doctrine, what is said society supposed to do with the bodies of all of those un-persons? Can’t very well just leave them lying around, can they? We suppose they could do what most fascist societies like themselves have done in the past, which is to shove them into mass graves, but does it not make more sense to at least get some use out of them? They’re not persons, after all, just “fetuses”, and that’s one of the kinder words ProgNazis use to describe the unborn when they get their killing on.
We suppose we should be grateful that they didn’t process the little bodies into protein bars. For the Common Good™.
And no, of course not. That sort of thing could never, ever happen here!
What are you? Some kind of wingnut? Racist.
