Earlier this month, pro-life activists revealed that they had obtained the discarded remains of over 100 aborted babies from a Washington, D.C. abortion clinic.
While the shocking images of five nearly full-term babies that the activists suspected may have been aborted in violation of the federal ban on partial-birth abortion has captured the most attention, an incredibly disturbing lesser-discussed aspect of the story is still incredibly worthy of note.
That is, that the babies’ bodies were obtained en route to be incinerated to generate electricity for Baltimore homes, as the activists claim was the case.
As Live Action Network highlighted, activist Missy Smith accused Curtis Bay Energy, which operates the largest medical waste incinerator in the nation, of using the aborted remains for such a purpose.
As previously reported, the activists obtained the aborted babies remains from a delivery driver who was picking up several boxes from the D.C. clinic. When the driver was informed what might have been in the boxes, he was horrified and handed them over to the activists.
The members of Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) say that the truck belonged to Curtis Bay Energy, and that the babies they recovered were on their way to be incinerated.
“This means, tragically, that they receive, transfer, and burn the corpses of aborted babies to make electricity for the households and businesses of the Baltimore area,” Smith said. “If you live in the Baltimore area, you must know that aborted babies have been burned to keep your lights on and your house warm. We call on Curtis Bay Energy to end this barbaric practice, and confirm publicly that they have done so.”
Curtis Bay Energy, for its part, denies that theirs were the boxes obtained by the PAAU activists.
“On March 25, a Curtis Bay employee took custody of three packages from the Washington Surgery Center (Washington Surgi Clinic) and delivered all of them to Curtis Bay’s incineration facility. At no time did the Curtis Bay employee hand over any of these packages to the PAAU or other third party, and any allegations made otherwise are false,” the company said in a statement, Live Action reported.
“As stated in client agreements and company policy, customers like Washington Surgi Clinic are prohibited from disposing of fetuses and human remains via Curtis Bay’s services. Curtis Bay provides its clients with medical waste bags and boxes to use in a manner that complies with applicable law, client agreements and company policy. Curtis Bay continues to fully cooperate with law enforcement.”
