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.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
