Oregon: Powered by aborted fetus tissue?

What if you found out you got your electricity from the burning of tissue from aborted fetuses?

Apparently that’s happening in Oregon right now.

And once the Marion County Commission in Oregon realized what was going on, they worked quickly to put a stop to it.

“We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding,” chairman Sam Brentano said in a statement. “We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries.”

This comes after a story out of the UK where aborted fetuses were being used to warm hospitals.
