A documentary on Monday by Channel 4‘s Dispatches revealed that ten NHS trusts have admitted to burning the remains of unborn babies as ‘clinical waste’ and that two other trusts have burned foetal remains in ‘waste-to-heat’ energy plants to heat hospitals.
These were not isolated occurrences. The programme revealed that at least 15,500 babies were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the past two years; Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge alone incinerated 797 foetuses below 13 weeks of gestation as part of their waste-to-energy scheme.
Another of these energy facililities at Ipswich hospital incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013.
Comparisons with the Shoah, the 1985 French documentary film about the Holocaust, are not so far off the mark given that many of the babies had been aborted.
Never mind lampshades, using the corpses of the unwanted, surplus-to requirement humans to generate light and heat would undoubtedly have been a flagship Nazi policy had the technology been available, reaching the epitome of ruthless efficiency.
The response of the health minister Dr Dan Poulter, who says the practice is unacceptable and pledges to stamp it out within the NHS, nonetheless exposed society’s schizophrenic attitude towards the unborn.
