Call In Tumor Protective Services

James Slack reports in London's Daily Mail:

Hospital Admits to Burning Aborted Babies in Waste Incinerator

"One of the country's leading hospitals is throwing aborted babies into the same incinerator used for rubbish to save only £18.50 each time, it has emerged."

"Addenbrooke's Hospital, in Cambridge, said it was no longer able to afford the dignified disposal at a local crematorium of foetuses from unwanted pregnancies."

"Instead, they are being burnt in the hospital's main incinerator - which is normally used for rubbish and clinical waste.

The revelation sparked anger and distress among church leaders and pro-life groups, as well as women whose pregnancies were terminated at the hospital." [...]

"From the Royal College of Nursing Guide: 'Therefore, it is important to respect the wishes of parents who may not want to be involved, but to ensure also that sensitive and dignified disposal is carried out.'" [...]

"One local woman, who asked not to be named, said after the heartache of deciding to have an abortion she was mortified to find the hospital had used the same furnace they burn rubbish in to incinerate her terminated baby."

"She said: "I am furious and very hurt. Imagine my horror when I discovered that my baby was incinerated in the same furnace as the hospital rubbish.""

Yeah... They should have given your 'tumor' a decent burial!

What utter hypocricy!

I imagine they'll just start offering people the option of a 'proper disposal' for a mere $100.
