What Happens to America’s Aborted Babies?

Their fate is not much better than babies in the UK: Incineration, sewers, and landfills.

Warning: graphic descriptions below.

Most of us shared a collective gasp last week when news broke that aborted babies in the UK were incinerated and, in some cases, used to heat hospitals. Mike McNally wrote,

It’s emerged that several National Health Service (NHS) trusts in the UK have been routinely burning the bodies of aborted babies as “clinical waste,” and that in at least two cases the remains were used to heat hospitals – an example of ruthless efficiency if ever there was one. This is what happens when the progressive left’s culture of death meets the heartless bureaucracy of socialized healthcare.

This, of course, has led many to wonder what happens to American babies after they’re aborted. Is the way they are treated upon their demise in the United States any less gruesome than the way they are disposed of across the pond?

Sadly, in our country, aborted babies are treated like trash—medical waste—and they are commonly incinerated. In some cases, the remains are dumped in landfills with other “solid waste” or ground up and dumped into sanitary sewers.

Laws vary by state. California requires that “pathology waste,” which includes recognizable anatomical parts or human tissue specimens, “must be treated by incineration.” New Mexico requires either incineration or interment. In Ohio the law simply says that “products of conception…shall be disposed of in a humane manner,” whatever that means, since “humane” is not defined in the statute.

Texas offers several options for disposal of “tissues or fetuses” (not for the squeamish):

1  Incineration followed by deposition of the residue in a sanitary landfill;

2. Grinding and discharging to a sanitary sewer system;

3. Interment;

4. Steam disinfection followed by interment;

5. Moist heat disinfection followed by deposition in a sanitary landfill;

6. Chlorine disinfection/maceration followed by deposition in a sanitary landfill; or

7. An approved alternate treatment process, provided that the process renders the item as unrecognizable, followed by deposition in a sanitary landfill.

Dear God, what kind of country have we become? Surely we have lost our national soul when our laws can speak in such sanitary and pragmatic terms about the bodies of tiny human beings using words like “grinding,” “maceration” and rendering them “unrecognizable” so they can be deposited into a “sanitary landfill.”

1,500,000 Jewish children under the age of 5 years old were brutally murdered in Europe during World War 2. The world has had a chance to repent and rather than do so it continues it's war against us. Rather than face up to subhuman brutality the disease of moral bankruptcy has only gotten worse.

maybe the title of this should really be '70,000,000 + unborn babies bodies destroyed before Americans begin asking questions about how'.

I remember the early days of this evil when feminists insisted that legalizing abortion would make abortion safe, rare, never late term and would never be expected to be paid for by taxpayers, who were mostly opposed to it.

supremes then went out and 'discovered' a right never heard of before to appease the fem's. oh how the mighty have fallen.

I was sickened researching and writing about this. We need to tell the truth and stop averting our eyes from what actually happens in the abortion industry.

Written by my nephew this morning: "Sitting in the delivery room waiting. Just blown away by the thought of meeting a new soul today...little Claire. Read this from Matthew Henry's comments on Ps139. I love the last sentence...incredible."

"...it is he that has made us and not we ourselves. "I will praise thee, the author of my being; my parents were only the instruments of it.' It was done, (1.) Under the divine inspection: My substance, when hid in the womb, nay, when it was yet but in the forming, an un-shapen embryo, was not hidden from thee; thy eyes did see my substance. (2.) By the divine operation. As the eye of God saw us then, so His hand wrought us; we were His work. (3.) According to the divine model: In thy book all my members were written. Eternal wisdom formed the plan, and by that almighty power raised the noble structure."

There is always something wrong with these conversations about abortion.

The killing of unborn children on a massive scale is a horror andi n the west we have descended under the influence of atheist secularism into some kind of putrid immoral pus. Really I think we must resemble some dessicated old crone covered in weeping sores, but holding a gatorade, texting on an iphone covered in fine clothes and makeup. A disgusting image which I think must be how our souls look.

But the point I want to make is that it is quite obvious that abortion is held up by certain pillars which we have long found acceptable.

One of those is the sexual freedoms we enjoy. When people screw around and lust after others and jump from one union to another then unwanted children will always be a problem.

Another pillar holding up abortion is divorce and family breakdown. Everybody wants the right to end their relationships, but this uncertainty leads many to kill their unborn children.

So before preening yourself in satisfaction for your moral hatred of abortion ask yourself, "am I willing to give up the sexual freedom we have all been encouraged to practice since the 60's?", "am I willing to give up divorce?", because if you say no to this, you are saying yes to abortion and you are a hypocrite.

Abortion was largely inevitable when people began to watch porn and became promiscuous, forsaking their vows of marriage and holy orders and generally making an idol of their lusts.

So if you want to do away with abortion, then the pillars of sexual immorality and family breakdown must be done away with, if you are unwilling to accept this then all your wailing and weeping is so much vain conceit before you go back to the very behaviours which will support the abortion mills.

This conversation about abortion is too often self satisfied shallow outrage without the understanding that only a return to God and a return to a life of sexual restraint for everyone will stop the slaughter.

The 55,000,000+ American children aborted since 1973 equal the cumulative populations of 26 American states.
(For those of you educated recently, 26 more than half of the American states.)

This isn't including the ones that go down the garbage disposal, are just tossed in the dumpster, or left indefinately in storage units.

Any similarity to the furnaces of Buchenwald or the worshiping of Moloch aside... think of what is happening. Our national strength is turning into weakness. While Americans masturbate in front of the screen and practice perversions unknown to their forefathers, the enemies of the US are repenting and getting strong, a sure sign that the LORD is about to use them to punish us for our wicked deeds. Those babies were to grow our economy, guard our nation, man our ships, work on our factories but we exchanged the joy of having them in our arms for a bunch of cheap Chinese crap made by a nation of Communist slaves; easy money that is not earned honestly but printed to fool the masses. Sodomy and corruption reign, our children are used as mere props in the porn "industry"; a fool leads the country talking nothing but bull all the time as the media adores his every foolish word. There has been NO REAL ECONOMIC GROWTH in America since 1982, just debt. Do not think for a minute that those wicked deeds are going to be left unpunished. Prepare to suffer at the hands of the enemies of America. The sword that will cut the abortionists and traitors head has already been unsheathed and it is waiting in the dark somewhere for the moment to strike. We will not be spared this punishment.

"And thou shall not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou contaminate the name of thy God. I am the LORD."
-Leviticus 18-21

What we are calling down upon ourselves will make the very stones of the Earth tremble in fear.

"And they cried with a loud voice, saying:
'How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood upon those that dwell in the Earth?'"
- Revelation 6:10

Animal Rights websites have similar sensationalistic articles. I've tried hard to explain to the AR people that killing animals isn't the same as killing people. They continue to insist that "animals have feelings and are human, too." Graphic pictures and sensational videos are painful to watch. Who can't be sadden by the demise of another sentient being? Still, there is a significant hurdle before one can claim that a being has a rational faculty so that their life, like ours, is protect by the doctrine of rights. I just can't reach them.

The difference between cremation and incineration is one of ceremony and use.

A stand alone furnace which is only used for human remains attended by priests, rabbis or monks on a rotating basis would suffice.

Simply pitching out the remains with refuse is not right.
