A witness representing Republicans claimed under oath that Washington DC power companies used aborted foetuses to generate electricity.
During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on abortion access on Wednesday, anti-abortion activist Catherine Glenn Foster said people should “think of the incinerators” before turning on the lights of their homes.
“Bodies [are] thrown in medical waste bins, and in places like Washington DC, burned to power the lights of the cities’ homes and streets,” Ms Foster claimed.
“Let that image sink in with you for a moment,” she continued. “The next time you turn on the light, think of the incinerators, think of what we’re doing to ourselves so callously and so numbly.”
