Aborted babies incinerated as part of waste-to-energy plant… in the United States?

Last month, Glenn discussed the gruesome report from The Telegraph that the bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat National Health Service hospitals around the United Kingdom. At the time, Glenn likened the heinous practice to the plot of a “dystopian horror movie.”

In a disturbing turn of events, it now looks like the practice may be commonplace in the United States as well. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to a report from TheBlaze that the British Columbia Health Ministry has seemingly admitted it shipped “biomedical waste” – including tissue from aborted fetuses – to an Oregon waste-to-energy facility to produce electricity for residents.

“Let's got to the news story we haven't hit yet, and that is: Where do we get our energy? Where do we get our power from,” Glenn said. “Now, we told a story a couple of weeks ago, that… aborted fetuses are being shoveled in to the plant, to be able to [heat hospitals]… I was horrified by this, and I thought: Look at where that road leads. Does this happen in the United States of America? Answer: Yes, in Oregon.”

The B.C. Catholic, a religious news organization, was among the first to break this story, and it cites unnamed officials with the Health Ministry’s communications branch who admitted “biomedical waste,” which includes “human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs and fetal tissue,” is “disposed of through appropriate contacted providers.”

“Let's be clear,” Glenn said. "‘Fetal tissue’ [is] aborted babies. Stop calling them ‘fetal tissue.’ That's aborted babies! We are powering some of our homes in Oregon with aborted babies.”

Kristan Mitchell, executive director of the Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association, told the B.C. Catholic the “biomedical waste” likely ends up at the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility in Oregon. The facility has confirmed it still receives and incinerates B.C. medical waste.

Stu brought up an interesting point in regards to the outrage that have accompanied these stories of ‘medical waste’ – including aborted babies – being used for electricity.

“Maybe this is not the right point, but, to me, you will see people who are pro-choice say, ‘This is ridiculous. Tis at not what we support.’ But what we need to realize is those are the people that are being inconsistent,” Stu explained. “If you are pro-choice, why the hell wouldn't you [burn] fetal tissue to make electricity? At least you are doing something with it… If you think it's okay to kill ‘it’ because it is an ‘it,’ then throw it in the incinerator. It [should make] sense from their perspective.”

With that in mind, Glenn explained that he personally is against any type of medical waste – whether it is a cancerous tumor or an aborted baby – being incinerated because it violates his belief in the sanctity of human life.

“I have a problem with even the cancerous tumors [being burned] because you are violating the sanctity of humans. Let's not take any human and turn it into something else. I don't care if it's a bad part of humans,” Glenn concluded. “Our society is so upside down right now… because we no longer have an instrument panel. We are no longer pegged on the Constitution.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
