Aborted Fetuses Burned to Generate Electricity?

Ad Feedback

Oregon officials were horrified to learn medical waste that includes aborted fetuses is possibly being burned to generate electricity.

On Thursday, Marion County commissioners Sam Brentano and Janet Carlson ordered an incinerator to stop burning the medical waste that comes from a Canadian company. 

Both strongly oppose abortions.

The commissioners suspended the shipments of waste until procedures are in place to ensure no fetal tissue is burned.

"We're going to get to the bottom of it," Carlson said. "I want to know who knew, when they knew, how long they had known this was going on."

Brentano said, "No rule or law has been broken, but there's an ethical standard that's been broken."

The decision comes a month after reports that officials in the United Kingdom used fetal remains to generate power at medical facilities.
