The Covanta Waste to Energy treatment plant in Brooks, Oregon was featured at WillametteLive.com in an 2007 article entitled Burn Baby Burn. Years later we find out that this is exactly what has been going on at this facility, which converts biomedical waste to energy. The original article addressed public concerns about the possible toxic or hazardous effects of incinerating imported medical waste. The possibility of dioxin or mercury contamination of nearby bodies of water occupied the minds of those who objected to this facility.
A present day article reveals that part of the medical waste imported from British Columbia to the Covanta facility, for incineration, is comprised of aborted Canadian babies. This admission comes from the British Columbia Health Ministry, acknowledging that these babies have become part of the electricity supplied by the facility to the residents of Oregon. Specifically, the aborted Canadians are burned, along with other Canadian body parts, in a pair of huge boilers, at a temp of 2000 degrees fahrenheit. The heat transfers to water tubes, creating steam to drive turbines, which in turn generate electricity.

Update: Marion County Chairperson, Sam Brentano is upset at hearing that aborted Canadians are being burned for electricity at the Covanta Facility. There is a plan to suspend burning medical waste while this issue is investigated. Brentano apparently does not want to do anything to “facilitate abortion”.
