UK Telegraph is reporting 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.

The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.

Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.

Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded ‘totally unacceptable.’

At least 15,500 foetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s Dispatches discovered.

The programme, which will air tonight, found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.

One of the country’s leading hospitals, Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge, incinerated 797 babies below 13 weeks gestation at their own ‘waste to energy’ plant. The mothers were told the remains had been ‘cremated.’

Another ‘waste to energy’ facility at Ipswich Hospital, operated by a private contractor, incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013.
They were brought in from another hospital before being burned, generating energy for the hospital site. Ipswich Hospital itself disposes of remains by cremation.

31st Anniversary of One-Child Policy Sparks U.S. Protests, Vigils Led By Tiananmen Square Commander-In-Chief

WASHINGTON, Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — ***Sept. 25: Anniversary of China’s One-Child Policy***
Sept. 22 – Oct. 4: Chai Ling–Revolutionary, Nobel Prize Nominee, Harvard MBA–Leads Nationwide Remembrances, Testifies Before Congress and Releases Memoir Banned in China

“Chai Ling is one of the most courageous women I know … . from her early days as a self-possessed student thrust suddenly onto the worldwide stage to her current role as a fierce defender of women and girls.” — Cindi Leive, editor-in-chief, Glamour magazine

“Sept. 25, 2011 marks the continuation of China’s ‘gendercide‘ ‘war on girls,’ ” said Chai Ling, the woman who, at age 23, was the commander-in-chief of the 1989 Tiananmen Square student rebellion. On this 31st anniversary, Ling–now a U.S. citizen exiled from China–continues her fight against China’s human rights atrocities by leading a U.S. protest and nationwide campaign against the One-Child Policy.

Ling and two other witnesses will testify Sept. 22 for the Congressional Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights to share stories of coerced abortions at the hands of the Chinese government, some 37,000 per day according to China’s National Family Planning Commission.

While in Washington, Ling will participate at a Sept. 23 rally, “37 Seconds of Silence,” part of a nationwide vigil organized by her advocacy group All Girls Allowed. Sept. 22- 25, more than 200 universities and churches nationwide–including Harvard, Northeastern and Notre Dame–will host 37-second vigils of silence to honor the 37 million girls* missing, through infanticide, abortion or abandonment, due to the Chinese law.

“It is this generation’s responsibility to speak up, and students are beginning to see that,” said Ling. “The good news is, with this kind of momentum, we believe that we can end ‘gendercide’ in our lifetime.”

A victim of China’s One-Child Policy, Ling only recently gained enough closure to share her full story in A Heart for Freedom, which reveals the truth behind her role in the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, her status as one of the most-wanted women in China, her own experience with government-forced abortion, and how she escaped to America. Banned from the very country she has long fought to save, Ling’s human rights work has resulted in two nominations for a Nobel Peace Prize and recognition by Glamour magazine as “Woman of the Year.”

China’s One-Child Policy
The One-Child Policy, which limits Chinese families to having just one child, was established in 1980 as a response to an exploding Chinese population. Due to the Chinese preference for male children, sex-selective abortions, female infanticide and the abandonment of female children has become an integral part of Chinese culture over the last 31 years.

Groups wishing to hold a moment of silence ceremony can register at the All Girls Allowed website. A map of vigil locations is available.

Chai Ling is the founder of All Girls Allowed and founding president and chief operating officer of Jenzabar, Inc., a leading higher education software and services provider. She holds a M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, a M.L.A. in public affairs at Princeton University and a B.A. from Beijing University. Ling also established the Jenzabar Foundation, which supports inspirational humanitarian efforts of student leaders through grant opportunities. A key student leader herself in the 1989 Tiananmen Square movement, Ling was subsequently named Glamour Woman of the Year and nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. Ling is author of the new book A Heart for Freedom. The hardcover memoir will release on Oct. 4, available nationwide.

All Girls Allowed aims to end gender discrimination in China through eradicating “gendercide” and assisting families who have baby girls, providing education and scholarships to abandoned girls, rescuing children from human trafficking and providing legal advocacy to mothers who have been victims of forced abortions or sterilization.

September 22, Reggie Littlejohn will testify before Congress

Liu Dan was 21 years old and 9 months pregnant when family planning police grabbed her out of her home, dragged her to the local family planning office, and forcibly aborted her full term baby. They already knew from medical tests that she had high blood pressure and that a forced late term abortion would be dangerous for her. After the forced abortion, she lay alone and unconscious in an operating room in the family planning center. Sensing something was wrong, her fiancé burst into the room at 3:00 a.m. to find her bleeding from the eyes, nose, ears and mouth. Even so, the family planning police refused to call for emergency help, until her family insisted. Help arrived too late. Liu Dan died, along with her full term baby.

“The One Child Policy causes more violence against women and girls than any other official policy on earth. It is China’s war on women,” says Reggie Littlejohn, President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers. “Any discussion of women’s rights, or human rights, would be a charade if forced abortion in China is not front and center. It does not matter whether you are pro-life or pro-choice on this issue. No one supports forced abortion, because it is not a choice. The Chinese forced abortion policy is systematic, institutionalized violence against women.”

Ms. Littlejohn will be among those testifying for the Committee on Foreign Affairs Congressional Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights, on September 22 at 2:00 in Room 2200 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

In addition, she will testify regarding blind activist lawyer Chen Guangcheng, who exposed the fact that there were 130,000 forced abortions and involuntary sterilizations in Linyi County in 2005. The Chinese Communist Party imprisoned Chen for four years and has kept him and his family under strict house arrest since September, 2010. On February 9, 2011 Chen released a video describing the deplorable conditions of his house arrest. The next morning, Chen and his wife, Yuan Weijing, were “beaten senseless.” Chen’s family recently was moved to a “personal prison” build for them.

“This treatment of Chen is unconscionable. It shows the appalling lengths to which the CCP will go to silence a hero who has spoken up against forced abortion in China.”

Over 300 dead fetuses found in Thai Buddhist temple

Posted in Abortion, Feticide with tags , , on November 17, 2010 by saynsumthn

BANGKOK, THAILAND (BNO NEWS) — Nearly 350 dead fetuses have been found in plastic bags inside the morgue of the Buddhist temple Wat Phai Ngern in Bangkok, local authorities said on Tuesday.

Local authorities were initially notified at around 2 p.m. local time on Tuesday and took temple undertaker Suthep Cha-bangbon into custody. He later admitted to have been hired by five abortion clinics to dispose the fetuses.

Abortion is illegal in Thailand with the exception of special medical cases in which the mother is facing health issues during the pregnancy or in rape cases.
After Suthep’s arrest, he had claimed to have discovered the fetuses and alerted local authorities. After questioning at the Wat Phayakrai police station, however, he eventually confessed to his doings.

The fetuses were found wrapped in plastic bags of various colors and newspapers, Pol Lt Thananuwat Sitthichai, an investigator at Wat Phrayakrai police station, confirmed, adding that forensic police were continuing the investigation at the scene.

The wrapped fetuses were being hidden in one of the temporary body storage areas of the temple for pending cremation. In Thailand, Buddhist temples commonly perform cremation ceremonies, but also store bodies in special storage areas that are usually refrigerated.

As of late Tuesday, authorities said 348 dead fetuses have been recovered at the temple. However, authorities believe there are more fetuses that will be recovered on Wednesday.

Woman accused of trying to kill unborn baby in fall

Police summoned to emergency room after incident.

Shortly after receiving medical treatment at the hospital Wednesday, a Burlington woman was arrested on allegations she tried to abort her pregnancy because she was mad at her husband.

Christine May Taylor, 22, is charged with attempted feticide, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

According to Iowa law, feticide is when a person “attempts to intentionally terminate a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person, after the end of the second trimester of the pregnancy where death of the fetus does not result.”

Burlington Police officers were summoned to Great River Medical Center late Tuesday night after Taylor reportedly told a nurse she intentionally fell down the stairs of her home because she wanted to get rid of her unborn child. She also allegedly told a doctor she did not want her baby.

It is unclear how far along she is in her pregnancy.

Authorities said Taylor and her husband, who lives in Maryland, have not been getting along. The husband allegedly told his wife over the phone he did not love her anymore and the only reason he is with her is because of their children.

After hanging up the phone Tuesday, Taylor reportedly told police she purposely fell down the stairs to get rid of the baby because she did not want to have any more children with her husband.

Information on how many children the couple have was not available.
