When the story about the UK burning aborted babies to generate energy broke, people were outraged but the standard answer was it couldn’t happen here (meaning the US), but we now find out it is happening here in the good ole USA, specifically in Oregon, where “medical waste,” from Canada, which includes “fetal tissue,” is being used at the Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility, to generate energy.
After LifeNews broke this story, officials issued statements about the practice and are convening meetings to deal with it:
Today the Marion County Board of Commissioners learned that the Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility located in Marion County may be accepting medical waste containing human tissue from outside sources. In response to an April 21 article in The B.C Catholic, the board took immediate action to temporarily halt the acceptance of boxed medical waste at the facility.
Commissioner Sam Brentano, chair, said, “We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding. We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries.”
“We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility,” said Commissioner Janet Carlson. “We did not know this practice was occurring until today. We are taking immediate action and initiating discussions with Covanta Marion to make certain that this type of medical waste is not accepted in the future.”
How can they not know what type of “waste” they are accepting and using? How many other energy plants are accepting the same type of “waste?”
