Corpses Of Murdered Babies Incinerated To Help Heat British Hospitals

Aborted Babies Incinerated To Heat UK Hospitals – London Telegraph

The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.

.

.
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.

One of the country’s leading hospitals, Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge, incinerated 797 babies below 13 weeks gestation at their own ‘waste to energy’ plant. The mothers were told the remains had been ‘cremated.’

Another ‘waste to energy’ facility at Ipswich Hospital, operated by a private contractor, incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013.

They were brought in from another hospital before being burned, generating energy for the hospital site. Ipswich Hospital itself disposes of remains by cremation.

“This practice is totally unacceptable,” said Dr Poulter.

“While the vast majority of hospitals are acting in the appropriate way, that must be the case for all hospitals and the Human Tissue Authority has now been asked to ensure that it acts on this issue without delay.”

Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS Medical Director, has written to all NHS trusts to tell them the practice must stop.

The Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, has also written to the Human Tissue Authority to ask them make sure that guidance is clear.

And the Care Quality Commission said it would investigate the programme’s findings.

Prof Sir Mike Richards, Chief Inspector of Hospitals, said: “I am disappointed trusts may not be informing or consulting women and their families.

“This breaches our standard on respecting and involving people who use services and I’m keen for Dispatches to share their evidence with us.

“We scrutinise information of concern and can inspect unannounced, if required.”

A total of one in seven pregnancies ends in a miscarriage, while NHS figures show there are around 4,000 stillbirths each year in the UK, or 11 each day.

Ipswich Hospital Trust said it was concerned to discover that foetal remains from another hospital had been incinerated on its site.

A spokeswoman said: “The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust does not incinerate foetal remains.”

She added that the trust “takes great care over foetal remains”

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.

You can expect Obamacre to be a lot like Obamanomics

That is to say, you can expect it to be worse than anyone ever expected. Moonbattery has the bleak preview. All your medical records belong to us now

Britain gives us another preview of life in a country where government has seized control of the healthcare sector:

GPs [general practitioners] are to be forced to hand over confidential records on all their patients’ drinking habits, waist sizes and illnesses.

The files will be stored in a giant information bank that privacy campaigners say represents the ‘biggest data grab in NHS history’.

They warned the move would end patient confidentiality and hand personal information to third parties.

The data includes weight, cholesterol levels, body mass index, pulse rate, family health history, alcohol consumption and smoking status.

Healthcare is a limited commodity. If it is not to be allocated by price in the free market, but rather be provided by the government, it must be rationed. Knowing who has been smoking, drinking, eating too much, et cetera will be helpful to bureauweenies in deciding who gets healthcare and who does not.

GPs will be required to send monthly updates on their patients to a central database run by the NHS’s Health and Social Care Information Centre.

I am sure many are shaking their heads reading this. They are likely saying “here he goes again with that death panel stuff.” Well, sorry, but that is reality folks. At some point, it will come down to that, and the bigger the government role the more likely it will be a government decision who gets what care. Of course, many folks only hear one word when universal health care is discussed. That word is “free”. Boy, how surprised are they going to be one day when they realize the cost of that ” free” health care.

Update! The Other McCain has some thoughts on the unexpected cost of the greatest lie ever

Everything Democrats say is a lie. Remember what they promisedObamaCare would do, now that we see what it actually does:

Remember when they said it would actually save money for the federal government? Remember when they said nobody would lose their current insurance? Lies, lies, all lies. The Democratic Party is so deliberately dishonest that no decent person would ever vote for any Democrat.

How true, the Democratic Party has devolved into the Lying Party. I often ask how anyone can support an ideology that requires complete dishonesty. Seriously, if you are still a Democrat, then you either like being lied to, enjoy living in complete ignorance, or support the Neo-Marxist direction of the Democrats. So, which is it?

If you make only one video go viral this year……

 

………make it this one from Stacy McCain

Betsy McCaughey is the former lieutenant governor of New York. She has a Ph.D. from Columbia University. Her Web site isDefendYourHealthCare.com and she is the author of The Obama Health Law: What It Says and How to Overturn It.

Today at Newt Gingrich’s “Newt University” conference, Dr. McCaughey explained that the “skimpy care” that Obama’s health law would impose on Medicare hospital patients “is likely to cause an estimated 40,000 unnecessary deaths each year.” As she explained in a brief video interview with me today, this is not a political charge, but is based on evidence from extensive medical research. Here’s the video — let’s make it viral:y

And as you pass this around, remember WHO passed this law, AGAINST our wishes!

 

Do you ever wonder how some people got their job?

I know I do, it seems that stupidity and incompetence are pre-requisites for certain jobs,especially jobs that should require a bit of brains. Apparently, these traits are also important if you are a Supreme Court Justice named Sonia Sotomayor as well. American Thinker’s Jason Lee looks at the justice’s shocking cluelessness

The liberal Supreme Court justices have demonstrated profound and shocking ignorance of the American health care system.  Here’s one of the most jarring examples:

“What percentage of the American people who took their son or daughter to an emergency room and that child was turned away because the parent didn’t have insurance,” asked Sotomayor, “… do you think there’s a large percentage of the American population that would stand for the death of that child — (who) had an allergic reaction and a simple shot would have saved the child?”

I have a precise answer for Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

The percentage of American people who took their son or daughter to an emergency room and were turned away because the parent didn’t have insurance is exactly zero.

No person, whether American or not, is ever turned away from an emergency room for lack of health insurance. Ever.

This simply does not happen.

Here’s why:

1.  It’s illegal.  

Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) is a U.S. Act of Congress passed in 1986 as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). It requires hospitals to provide care to anyone needing emergency healthcare treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. There are no reimbursement provisions. Participating hospitals may only transfer or discharge patients needing emergency treatment under their own informed consent, after stabilization, or when their condition requires transfer to a hospital better equipped to administer the treatment.

Shouldn’t this woman be aware of the law? But,maybe of greater concern is that the question she posed has nothing, at all, to do with the constitutionality, of the Affordable Health Care Act.  It would seem that Sotomayor is willing to cast her decision based not on the Constitution, but on whether or not the bill in question might be “good”. Sorry, but that should not enter into a justices decision. Only one thing should, and in this case that one question is this. Does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to compel Americans to buy a certain product.

Architect of Obamacare: Cost of health care premiums to rise dramatically under Obamacare

Looks like all those dumb right-wingers were right.

Via Daily Caller:

Medical insurance premiums in the United States are on the rise, the chief architect of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul has told The Daily Caller.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist Jonathan Gruber, who also devised former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s statewide health care reforms, is backtracking on an analysis he provided the White House in support of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, informing officials in three states that the price of insurance premiums will dramatically increase under the reforms.

In an email to The Daily Caller, Gruber framed this new reality in terms of the same human self-interest that some conservatives had warned in 2010 would ultimately rule the marketplace.

So how could this expert, this genius, have been so wrong?

Gruber, whom the Obama administration hired to provide an independent analysis of reforms, was widely criticized for failing to disclose the conflict of interest created by $392,600 in no-bid contracts the Department of Health and HumanServicesawarded him while he was advising the president’s policy advisers.

Ah, there you are. Dig deep America. I am sure the media will say the hikes are rising “unexpectedly”. Like everything else with this administration you can expect the unexpected to be worse than anyone expected!

Adrienne’s Corner

Take a peek at her post on health care costs and tell me it does not smack of common sense and reason.

Somehow, in the past 50 or so years, the entire concept of health insurance has been turned inside out and upside down.  No longer do we insure against a catastrophic event, what was once called a “major medical” policy, but now expect our insurance to pay for hangnails and head colds. 

As a nation, we run to the doctor for the most trivial of reasons because “it’s free.”  This phenomenon is not relegated to the people who are insured through their employer, but includes Medicare recipients also.

A number of years ago, I had a lady friend who was on Medicare.  She had problems with the maintenance of her toenails and so her doctor referred her to a podiatrist.  Every six weeks, she visited the podiatrist to have her nails clipped, not by the doctor, but by an assistant in the office.  Medicare was billed for an office visit and for the clipping of her nails, a procedure that could have been performed by any competent manicurist.  Of course, if she went to manicurist, she would have to pay $5.00 or $10.00 to have her nails clipped.  Why do that when you can get it done for “free.”

Both my husband and I are recent receivers of this abomination called Medicare.  Unlike most recipients, I carefully review the statements for our services.  Just a few weeks ago, my husband had a electrocardiogram performed.  When I saw the amount billed to Medicare, I almost had a stroke.  A relatively simple procedure, the technology of which has long since paid for, cost close to $4,000.00.  A doctor isn’t even required to do the procedure, a technician being sufficient for the job.  Admittedly, a doctor “reads” the results, which were already known to us by the nurse.   What Medicare actually paid the clinic for the procedure is an unknown, but not for long, since I plan on spending some quality time with the billing office to find out this information. 

Take the time to read the whole thing, it is excellent
