SALEM, Oregon, April 24, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) The Marion County Board of Commissioners announced late Wednesday that they are putting a stop to a waste-to-energy facilitys program that was incinerating aborted babies to produce electricity.
The B.C. Catholics Steve Weatherbe revealed April 21 that the British Columbia government was sending fetal remains to the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility to be burned along with other medical waste. The story made national news after LifeSiteNews reported on the revelation Wednesday afternoon.
We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility, said Commissioner Janet Carlson in a Wednesday statement.
We did not know this practice was occurring until today. We are taking immediate action and initiating discussions with Covanta Marion to make certain that this type of medical waste is not accepted in the future.
The board says it has called an emergency meeting for Thursday morning at 9:00 a.m. to discuss the issue.
The British Columbia Ministry of Health said in an email to the B.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 provinces 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.
The power facility, located in Brookes just off the I-5, burns waste in two massive boilers at a temperature of about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat transfers into water tubes, which creates steam to drive turbines. The turbines generate electricity.
This news came one month after the remains of more than 15,000 aborted babies were found to have been incinerated, along with other medical waste, to heat and generate power for British hospitals.
They are “outraged” that they got caught.
How could you not know?
If they are so outraged, then I’m sure they have outlawed any abortion facilities in their county.
God has to put a stop to this insanity. Deliver us from the evil one who is the instigator of this madness.
The Nazis burned millions of Jews in concentration camp ovens and will forever be remembered as monsters. The Left of this nation deserves the same label.
To the headline fragment: we are outraged
Why the “outrage”?
At this point, it doesn’t matter what you do with the remains.
These babies were burnt alive with caustic solutions.
They were dismembered alive, screaming in agony from their burns.
Some were pulled out of the birth canal only to have their skulls punctured and their brains vacuumed out.
What could you possibly do to their remains that would be more disrespectful than what you did to kill them?
I thought Oregon might be proud of it
A few weeks ago we read that the brits were burning up dead babies to warm their tushes. We were outraged.
Deep down we knew that the same deep seated hatred for human nature, fueled by vicious anti-male feminists, would soon come to the USA.
We didn’t have to wait long.
To point out what should be obvious, what is (or should be) outrageous is the killing of innocent babies, not how their little corpses are handled.
Making a great big giant deal out of this seems to me to imply to some extent that the killing is ok, or perhaps less unacceptable, if the bodies are handled with respect.
To invoke Godfrey, what was evil about Auschwitz was the killing, not the cremation.
I wonder if they too have this same "Welcome" sign at the gate?
We did not know this practice was occurring until today.”
Yeah. Sure. Bullspittle! Ghouls.
So now they will burn them in a giant oven that doesn’t generate electricity. Is there really any difference?
The great god of feminism is still being appeased, as millions of babies are being sacrificed so feminazis won’t have to change diapers.
Soylent “GREEN!” renewable energy.....
you nailed it. well done
“We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility, said Commissioner Janet Carlson in a Wednesday statement.”
Hey Janet, what is causing you such outrage and disgust? I’m sure you consider it a “woman’s right” to “abort the mass of cells that is not yet human,” so why would you be disgusted at recycling such waste? Could it be that deep down in your heart, you realize the falacy of such a stance?
No, they think they can just find much "better uses" for aborted babies.
If it were up to Pelosi, the people who turned up this practice would be investigated, just like with ClimateGate in the UK.
Right. The fact that they are stopping it is not nearly enough. Who authorized it in the first place? Whoever did is sick and evil, period.
