A Maryland medical waste company is accused of receiving bodies of aborted babies from a late-term abortion facility and burning them in an incinerator that generates electricity for the Baltimore area.
The company, Curtis Bay Medical Waste Services, has been in the news this week after pro-life advocates with the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) said they obtained two boxes filled with the remains of 115 aborted babies from a truck driver with the company.
At a press conference Tuesday, PAAU leaders Lauren Handy and Terrisa Bukovinac said they asked the truck driver if they could have the boxes, labeled with the Curtis Bay logo, so that they could bury the aborted babies that likely were inside, and he agreed.
Inside the boxes, Handy and Bukovinac said they found the remains of 110 first-trimester aborted babies and five late-term aborted babies who may have been born alive or killed in partial-birth abortions in violation of federal law. They said the boxes came from the Washington Surgi Center in Washington, D.C.
However, a spokesperson for Curtis Bay denied the allegations in a statement to the Daily Wire.

“At no time did the Curtis Bay employee hand over any of these packages to the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising or other third party, and any allegations made otherwise are false,” the statement said.
Bukovinac said the driver already had scanned the boxes before they asked for them, which may explain why the company had a record of them in their system.
The Daily Wire continued to ask the Curtis Bay spokesperson for answers, pointing to photos of the boxes provided by PAAU, but the spokesman stuck to their original statement.
“As stated in client agreements and company policy, customers like Washington Surgi Clinic are prohibited from disposing of fetuses and human remains via Curtis Bay’s services,” the company statement said.
“Curtis Bay provides its clients with medical waste bags and boxes to use in a manner that complies with applicable law, client agreements and company policy,” it continued. “Curtis Bay continues to fully cooperate with law enforcement.”
But pro-life leaders with another group, Ohio-based Created Equal, also accused the medical waste company of working with the abortion industry to dispose of aborted babies’ bodies.
“Curtis Bay routinely receives, transfers, and burns aborted babies along with other medical waste for energy,” Created Equal said.
Mark Harrington, president of the group, said the company promotes on its website how it burns medical waste in a special “Waste-to-Energy” incinerator that converts the waste into energy that then is used in the Baltimore area.
In other words, Harrington said aborted babies’ bodies are being burned and converted into energy that runs people’s homes and businesses.
Many bio-waste companies cannot afford their own incinerators, so Curtis Bay also is a drop-off site for other medical waste companies that service abortion centers such as BioMedical Services, he continued.
“In third world countries, they throw abandoned babies in mass graves and landfills,” Harrington said. “In America we are much more sophisticated but just as barbaric. We kill babies by ‘doctors’ in ‘surgical centers,’ and ‘medical waste’ companies dispose of them by burning them for electricity. It doesn’t get any sicker than this!”
The pro-life organization encourages people to respectfully call or email Curtis Bay CEO Jack Perko at 443-681-5403 to ask him to please stop hauling and burning aborted babies for energy.
PAAU leaders said the five late-term aborted babies’ bodies are in the custody of Washington, D.C. police. Pro-life leaders are calling for a thorough investigation and autopsy of the babies to determine if any were born alive or killed via the illegal partial-birth abortion method.
Handy said the five babies appeared to be “so advanced in their gestational age and the patterns in their wounds suggest violent federal crimes.”
Police told the Daily Wire that they are investigating.
At the press conference Tuesday, pro-life leaders displayed the names that they had chosen for the five late-term babies: Ángel, Holly, Phoenix, Harriet and Christopher X.
“We cannot build a better world on a pile of murdered children,” Bukovinac said. “That’s not progress. Real progress is protecting the vulnerable from exploitation from people like [D.C. abortionist Cesare] Santangelo who are the true villains here. True progressives must stand up against this injustice.”
