An energy plant in Oregon (USA) incinerates foetuses aborted in Canada

Publié le : 24 April 2014

 One month after the scandal in England, which revealed that approximately 15,000 aborted or miscarried foetuses were incinerated to heat approximately twenty hospitals (Gènéthique press review on March 24th, 2014), a similar affair has just come to light in North America.       

The British Columbia Department of Health (Canada) has acknowledged the fact that aborted foetuses were transferred to an energy plant in Oregon (United States) to provide energy for state residents. The Coventa Marion plant, which burns 800 tonnes of hospital and clinical waste each year, confirmed that this waste classification includes “foetal tissues”. The waste energy recycling plant in question has announced that it will take immediate action to ensure that human tissues are not included in subsequent deliveries.
