“A friend called at night and said he went fishing and wanted to get some wood for his fire. He ran into some water canisters and wanted to take them home, but when he came closer he saw little baby bodies,” local resident Sergei Tveritinov told state television.
Photographs from the site showed fetuses with tags with numbers and inscriptions that Russian media said were the names of families.
Police say that the fetuses were preserved in formaldehyde and kept in barrels marked with surnames and numbers. Depending on which article you read, it is believed that the remains are from three or four local hospitals.
“It seems the company responsible for disposal of the bio-medical waste did not carry out its duties,” the deputy head of the regional government, Vladimir Vlasov, said on state television. The fetuses have since been placed in a local morgue.
Of course the Russian Orthodox Church had to use this to stress the evils of abortions and how this all “highlighted the degradation of our society.”
I was less surprised over a company mishandling bio-medical waste than I was over the fact that Russian women have abortions. I was under the impression that Russians ate their unwanted children.Tags: abortion, barrel, Crime, fetus, Russia
