Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals

Sick, sad, wrong. telegraph.co.uk:

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.

Anchor Dares to Ask Planned Parenthood Boss When Life Begins

Like nailing Jello to a wall? From newsbusters.org:

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion conglomerate, did an interview Thursday on the new Fusion network with anchorman Jorge Ramos.

The section sparking everyone’s attention came when Ramos – self-respecting enough to offer more than the piffle a Ronan Farrow offers on MSNBC – asked when life begins for Richards. She labored mightily not to answer, since abortion advocates eschew science and believe that women should be able to abort even AFTER a child is born:

JORGE RAMOS: Can I ask you a philosophical question?

Super secure healthcare.gov hacked in 4 minutes

Seen at misguidedchildren.com:

It only took David Kennedy four minutes to hack into the Obamacare website and acquire 70,000 personal records. Kennedy could have gone on to acquire hundreds of thousands of additional personal information, but he made his point. Not only is the healthcare site inadequate, clunky, poorly designed, but also non-compliant with security.

David Kennedy is an expert in online security. During a discussion with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, he said it only took him four minutes to break into the Obamacare website and pull personal information.

Wide open

“And 70,000 was just one of the numbers that I was able to go up to and I stopped after that,” he said. “You know, I’m sure it’s hundreds of thousands, if not more, and it was done within about a 4 minute timeframe. So, it’s just wide open.”

“You can literally just open up your browser, go to this, and extract all this information without actually having to hack the website itself,” he said.

Kennedy testified before Congress that the website is 100 percent insecure.

Death of the orange?

Well this would suck. humanevents.com:

A story that has been growing to alarming dimensions in Florida orange country is breaking through to national media, as the Washington Post delivers the astonishing news that we might be only a decade away from the effective end of oranges and their juice at our breakfast table.  It’s because of a Chinese bacterial invasion known as “huanglongbing,” a presently incurable disease that spreads like cancer, thanks to an insect that acquires the bacteria by feeding on infected trees and spreads it to healthy trees it infests.  It’s basically the orange-tree version of mosquito-borne malaria.

The Post describes huanglongbing’s effects: “Roots become deformed.  Fruits drop from limbs prematurely and rot.  The trees slowly die.”  The affliction is known as “citrus greening” because of the unpleasant color of the fruit.  Fruit from infected trees is not poisonous to humans, but it looks and tastes wrong.  $80 million worth of research has yet to produce a cure.

Woman once branded "world's ugliest" delivers an inspirational message

From cnsnews.com:

Velasquez suffers from a very rare syndrome that doesn’t allow her to gain weight. In a recent speech the 24 year old discussed the obstacles she overcame since birth. She frankly told about the reactions people have to her appearance and how she chose to not let others define her.

She says she wouldn’t let herself be defined by those who called her a monster. Now she asks you, “What defines who you are as a person?”

Satellite Measurements Confirm Arctic Ice Is Increasing Massively

From moonbattery.com:

Last Friday marked an important anniversary in the history of the global warming hoax. On that day 5 years ago, Al Gore prophesied that the ice cap at the North Pole would be completely melted in 5 years. Let’s see how that prediction worked out:

The amount of sea ice in the Arctic has increased by close to 50 per cent compared to last year, according to satellite measurements.

ESA’s CryoSat mission revealed that in October this year the Arctic had 9000 cu km of sea ice. This compares to just 6000 cu km in October 2012.

Scientists believe part of this stronger performance is due to a greater retention of older ice.

It isn’t a 1-year fluke.

The CryoSat-2 satellite was designed to measure sea-ice thickness across the entire Arctic Ocean, and has allowed scientists, for the first time, to monitor the overall change in volume accurately.

Scientists claim around 90 per cent of the increase is due to growth of multi-year ice – which survives through more than one summer without melting – with only 10 per cent growth of first year ice.
