Will we see a “death with dignity for aborted babies” campaign now?

Stomach-turning. Via the UK Daily Mail:

One of the country’s leading hospitals is throwing aborted babies into the same incinerator used for rubbish to save only £18.50 each time, it has emerged.

Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, said it was no longer able to afford the dignified disposal at a local crematorium of foetuses from unwanted pregnancies.

Instead, they are being burnt in the hospital’s main incinerator – which is normally used for rubbish and clinical waste.

Among the outraged (emphasis added):

The revelation sparked anger and distress among church leaders and pro-life groups, as well as women whose pregnancies were terminated at the hospital.

Um, correct me if I’m wrong, but if these women were so concerned with the well being of the unborn then why did they … oh, forget it. It’s too obvious.

Continuing:

One local woman, who asked not to be named, said after the heartache of deciding to have an abortion she was mortified to find the hospital had used the same furnace they burn rubbish in to incinerate her terminated baby.

She said: “I am furious and very hurt. Imagine my horror when I discovered that my baby was incinerated in the same furnace as the hospital rubbish.”

Worse than the horror of being aborted? After the little ‘inconvienience’ is aborted, why do the former mothers care what happens to it? They didn’t care much before, so why do they after the fact? Feeling guilty, maybe?

More: ST reader sanity makes a good point in the comments:

If you aborted your BABY as you are now stating, should that be considered murder then?

You can’t have it both ways.

You can’t call it just a lump of tissue that you are aborting and then suddenly be outraged, call it “your baby” and be suddenly outraged at how they dispose of your it.

So what is it? Is it a baby or is it a lump of tissue?
Are you aborting a lump of tissue or killing a baby?

    I would suspect that the anger expressed by these women is due to their feelings of guilt. :-?
