When the world first heart a recent shocking report that the remains of as many as 15,000 aborted babies were incinerated by British hospitals as a heating source, it reacted with international outrage.

The response to the news that aborted babies were incinerated as “clinical waste” in “waste to energy” plans at British hospitals from Birtish lawmakers? A collective shoulder shrug.

As Breitbart reports:

burningwasteA motion condemning the incineration of foetal remains by NHS hospitals has been signed by just 14 MPs. The motion was put forward after a report last month exposed the practice of burning foetal remains alongside general rubbish at 10 NHS trusts.

The Early Day Motion was proposed by Labour MP Robert Flello and seconded by Mark Durkan (SDLP), Jim Shannon (DUP), Alan Meale (Labour), Tony Cunningham (Labour) and Margaret Ritchie (SDLP).

The motion reads: “That this House is deeply concerned about recent reports of the incineration of foetal remains by NHS trusts, two of which were found to have burnt the bodies of aborted or miscarried foetuses and babies to generate power for heat; and calls on the Care Quality Commission to investigate fully UK hospitals to understand how widespread this practice has been.”

It has been signed by two Conservatives, six Labour MPs, four MPs from Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), and another two from the Social Democratic & Labour Party (SDLP). No Liberal Democrats have signed it.

Early Day Motions are designed to allow MPs to draw attention to a particular cause or event that may otherwise be missed in parliamentary business. If a motion receives enough signatures, it may be debated in the House of Commons.

While the pro-abortion movement frequently condemns pro-life advocates who draw comparisons between abortion and the Holocaust, the report of babies burned to heat UK hospitals is a shocking reminder of the callous way human life was treated by the Nazi regime.



The hospitals, funded by the British government’s NHs health care program, admitting burning the babies’ bodies along with legitimate medical waste and trash. The Department of Health has reportedly issued a ban on the practice, prohibiting the hospitals from exploiting the bodies of babies victimized by abortion any further.

The 15,000 babies whose bodies became fuel for heating hospitals were incinerated at 27 various hospitals and clinics across the U.K. and the parents were not consulted about burning the babies.
