Last year, during the height of the scandal involving multiple videos catching Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies, LifeNews.com reported how copies of the unreleased Center for Medical Progress videos catching Planned Parenthood and other abortion industry leaders selling aborted babies and their body parts had been leaked to the public.
The leaked videos contain footage filmed at a conference of the National Abortion Federation, a trade group of abortion clinic owners and abortionists. There, Renee Chelian, who owns the Northland Family Planning chain of abortion clinics, which do about 25 percent of the abortions in Michigan, talked about the problems she had disposing the bodies of aborted babies after the medical recycling company Stericycle stopped provided service to her abortion facilities.
Chelian talks about how she had the bodies of five months worth of aborted babies in freezers at her abortion clinics and no idea what to do with them.
“I was so consumed with fetal tissue that I was ready to drive to upper Michigan to have a bonfire. And it was just trying to figure out, you know, how I wouldn’t get stopped or how far into the woods would I have to go to have this fire that nobody would see me,” she is caught telling the audience of a NAF workshop.
Now, Students for Life of America has put together a montage of some of the footage from Chelian and her comments are chilling:
In the video, Renee Chelian, a Michigan abortion provider, says, “We thought we’ll give it [the fetal remains] to everybody in a gift bag, they can take it home, figure out what to do with it. It’s their pregnancy – why is this our problem? And I’m saying that in all seriousness.”

Nobody wants to talk about dead bodies, nobody but me. There was a point when Stericycle fired us that I had five months worth of fetal tissue in my freezers and we were renting freezers to put them in. So, all I thought about, I was so consumed with fetal tissue, I was ready to drive to upper Michigan and have a bonfire. And, I was just trying to figure out, you know, how I wouldn’t get stopped or how far in the woods would I have to go to have this fire that nobody was going to see me.
And the garbage disposal was an option, I mean, there was a point that I actually hired someone from another clinic to come in and take 20 bottles and put it into my garbage disposal.
Referring to pro-life activists as “the antis,” Chelian says disposing of fetal remains must be done “in secret”:
When we sent to another state, it became the whole issue of, do we tell FedEx what they’re picking up? How long will it take for the antis to figure it out? And, if we don’t tell them, what if there’s a bad snow storm, like there was this winter, and UPS got delayed, or FedEx gets delayed and their truck starts stinking… I mean, every state law is different. I know when I wanted to actually put the fetal tissue in my car and drive to the crematorium, in Illinois, I was advised by my attorneys that I was breaking several state laws and that, that really wasn’t a good idea. Although, I have a good friend in another state who is currently driving across two states, once a month, with fetal tissue to go to a funeral home and they have an arrangement to send out for cremation. But everything is secret so it’s really scary.
