A shocking new report out of Great Britain has revealed that thousands upon thousands of aborted and miscarried babies have been incinerated at a number of British hospitals, some even being used to heat the hospitals themselves.

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.

If the investigation turns out to be verified, which appears likely given the response by the National Health Service, the treatment of unborn children has reached a new level of atrocity in the “civilized” world.

These are not isolated incidents in some of the UK’s most destitute health service providers. To the contrary, some of these hospitals are the National Health Service’s standard bearers.

One hospital the investigation found to be participating in this brutal and inhuman practice was Addenbrooke’s, a Cambridge University Hospital.

The Hospital, which bids itself as “A centre of excellence… providing expert care in a safe, clean, comfortable and friendly environment,” incinerated hundreds of unborn children in their “waste to energy” plant. The hospital told the children’s mothers they had been “cremated.”

Unbeknownst to a litany of suffering mothers, these “cremated” babies at this and other NHS hospitals were actually being used to as fuel to provide heat for the hospital.

There is no real analogy one can draw to put these acts into perspective.

For what it’s worth, some of the hospitals have tacitly denied the allegations, though not with much vigor.

A spokesman for the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said that trained health professionals discuss the options with parents ‘both verbally and in writing.’

“The parents are given exactly the same choice on the disposal of foetal remains as for a stillborn child and their personal wishes are respected,” they added.

It’s not likely one of those options is, “turn your child into fuel.”
