Posted on 07/21/2004 6:49:11 AM PDT by NYer
A Japanese abortuary has been discarding aborted babies as regular garbage for several years. Former employees of the Isezaki Women's Clinic in Yokohama City, southwest of Tokyo, said they had been disposing of the aborted babies in plastic bags and putting them out with the regular trash.
"It is horrible if it is true," Chikara Sakaguchi, Japan's health minister said at a news conference, as reported by the AFP. "We will take measures after finding out what is actually going on."
Up until two years ago, before the clinic discontinued late-term abortions, staff reportedly chopped off the hands and feet of babies between 12 and 22 weeks old and disposed of them as regular garbage also.
Normal practice prescribes that babies older than 12 weeks be disposed of in the same way as adults, either by cremation or burial. If under 12 weeks, the Industrial Waste Disposal Law defines the remains as "infectious waste," requiring that the bodies be sealed in containers for incineration.
The Yokohama Municipal Government said it is planning to raid the clinic, and may press charges criminally.
Abortion is legal in Japan up until the 22nd week of pregnancy. There are approximately 330,000 abortions there each year.
Abortion is horrible, Mr. Minister!
Photo ops should abound in their trash area.
The rats and cats are having a field day.
The fact that it might be considered "horrible" lends credence to the fact that they know they are killing a human being when they do an abortion...
Is "abortuary" actually a word?
How does a human being shut down their hearts like this? What brings a person to the point where they can perform these acts without nightmares? I just don't get it.
Rest in peace the souls of those beautiful, helpless, innocent human being babies. Their suffering is over.
The suffering of those heinous people who care not about human life has not yet begun. I wouldn't want to be in their shoes.
How is that not the same as cremation? And why are they "disposing" of them like that at all? How dare they treat them like adults! They don't have rights like adults! They aren't *human*, right? Because, if they were, they wouldn't be aborting them! Uh... *tilt*
wow. barf alert. really sick
I guess so...

How about "murderarium"?
Whatever you choose to call them, how about putting them ALL out of business.
Why to they chop their tiny hands and feet off? Afraid they might come back to life with a vengeance? No violence is enough for these people.
"...330,000 abortions there each year."
OMG, that's horrible.
God bless their tiny, innocent souls; they never had a chance at life.
And as an amazing witness to the desensitization, these monsters are not looked at in the same light as the terorists who behead folks.
In truth, the baby killers are far worse. Any rational human being would want to kill them in defense of a third party, which is legal anywhere in the US. Yet such an action would result in the death penalty for the perpetrator.
Right has become wrong and wrong has become right.
