A recently leaked tape recorded at a National Abortion Federation event captures one abortion owner joking about the need to burn the fetuses her clinic aborted in a field, something that another doctor actually did.
The comments came from Renee Chelian, owner of the Michigan abortion clinic chain, Northland Family Planning who also told her NAF audience that if it weren’t for the “PR nightmare” she thought it would be a “great idea” to burn the remains of aborted babies for energy. Sadly, using aborted children for energy is not a new idea. In 2014, CBS reported that an electricity generated in Oregon may have included aborted babies. And, a 2014 UK Telegraph report found that the remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as ‘clinical waste’ by hospitals in Britain with some used in ‘waste to energy’ plants.
Earlier in the conversation, the abortion owner joked about wanting to take aborted babies from her clinic into a field and burn them. The trouble is, that idea has previously been carried out by another abortion doctor also making headlines this month.
In her speech, Chelian told the NAF audience the following:
“Um…Nobody wants to talk about dead bodies. Um, and nobody but me. I’m just saying. There was a point when Stericycle fired us that I had 5 months worth of fetal tissue in my freezers. We were renting freezers to put them in,” she says about her frustration over where to take her clinic’s aborted preborn babies for disposal.
Chelian continued, “It was all I thought about, was fetal tissue. Like, 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, you know, how far into the woods would I have to go to have this fire that nobody was going to see me…I mean it was the worst, I dreamed about how to dispose of fetal tissue. And the garbage disposal was an option…”
Ironically, although Chelian joked about dumping fetuses somewhere in the woods and burning them, an Oklahoma abortion doctor once admitted doing that precise thing for the exact same reasons that Chelian outlined in her speech. In 1992, Dr. Nareshkumar Patel was investigated for burning a large amount of aborted children in a field near Shawnee.
From the Oklahoman:
“Patel has been the center of controversy repeatedly since getting his medical license in Oklahoma in May 1984. In the most notorious incident, he burned 55 aborted fetuses in 1992 in a field east of Shawnee. He was investigated over the incident but never charged.”
Well…not so fast.
A 1992 Toledo Blade article on Patel read this way, “Dr.Nareshkumar Patel, an obstetrician-gynecologist told authorities he burned the fetuses because he was having trouble finding someone to handle their disposal.” Did you hear that Renee Chelian? Patel has already disposed of aborted children in the sick way you suggested and guess what, he was never prosecuted for doing so. You just can’t make this stuff up!
In fact, the only reason charges were not brought against Patel at that time was because there were no laws on the books to prohibit the heinous act. “There’s no criminal law that can be applied,” District Attorney Miles Zimmerman said at the time.
Now, almost 23 years later, Patel has found himself in trouble again. This month, Patel was sentenced to several days in jail for performing abortions on women who were not pregnant. Patel, whose sordid history also includes accusations of sexual abuse, was ordered to serve 18 days at a correctional facility after he pleaded guilty to the charges.
Patel also agreed to pay a $20,000 fine and never practice medicine again nor own any interests in any more abortion facilities.
