The following comes from an Apr. 25 story on LifeSiteNews.com.
A former temporary worker at the Oregon plant accused of incinerating aborted babies has said county officials “had to” know the facility generated power by burning fetal tissue.
Bud Waterman says officials must have known from the bloody waste they saw
Bud Waterman, a temporary worker at Covanta Marion, Inc., in the town of Brooks, remembered how the extra-long Stericycle trailers would pull up to the waste-to-power plant transporting “biomedical waste” from British Columbia.
“It would make you sick, especially if you had to clean it up or have to pull a box off the trailer,” he told local KOIN 6 TV news. “There was so much blood.”
The definition of “biomedical waste” being shipped to the United States includes aborted fetal remains, the British Columbia Health Ministry confirmed to the B.C. Catholic newspaper.
The mothers of the aborted children were led to believe the babies would be cremated, KOIN reported.
Marion County officials expressed their shock upon learning of the arrangement. “We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility,” Marion County Commissioner Janet Carlson said on Wednesday.
“They knew it, they had to,” Waterman said. “I don’t see how they could not know it.”
County Commissioner Janet Carlson demanded answers. “I want to know who knew, when they knew, how long they had known this was going on,” she said.
Commissioners met in a special session Thursday to immediately prohibit the use of medical waste until the statute can permanently exclude the use of aborted fetal tissue.
Commissioner Sam Brentano was quick to point out, “No rule or law has been broken” by Covanta Marion.
The facility burns an estimated 550 tons of waste each day, only a tiny portion of which is medical waste. The plant heats the refuse to temperatures of up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit to boil water or generate energy.

Real medical waste should be properly bagged and sealed against leaks, to protect the handlers. This is an outrage, but our wrath is properly directed against the abortionists who disposed of their victims so inhumanly.
The bodies of aborted babies must be buried, because they are human, made in the image and likeness of God.. Of course, the major portion of society considers them just tissue, like toe nails or hair, which can be discarded, so they will have no qualms about using the aborted babies as fertilizer, or for ingredients in skin lotion. We have become like Nazi Germany, whom I have been told used the skin of Jewish people for lampshades. Our immoral nation is fast becoming as evil as the worst perpetrators of heinous crimes because of our ungodly behavior towards life and marriage.
Father Karl thank you for your comments. I appreciate your mercy towards the unborn by saying that they must be buried because they are human! Let us pray that others will follow your guidance and respect these little innocent children whom where killed off.
Jesus make in us hearts like thy own!
This is a HORROR, before God! Our nation, and all similar ones that no longer uphold the holy union of Man and Woman in the sacrament of Marriage– and promote irresponsible “free sex,” with the use of contraceptives, and abortion of their children, created by God’s Love, in His own Divine Image– these countries are all doomed! The blood of these murdered children, whose parents only seek selfish pleasure for themselves, cries out to God, for Justice!! These sinful countries all will oneday have a terrible fate, a terrible price to pay for MORTAL SIN!! God knows all, and sees all, and you cannot lie– to God!!
