What happens to the bodies/remains of aborted babies?

Elliot Ikilei made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

Ministry of Health did not have the information requested.

From: Elliot Ikilei

Dear Ministry of Health,

I would like to request the pathway of the bodies/remains of those unborn human entities that are aborted, specifically by surgical abortion.

I request to know, in abortions either Vacuum aspiration or Dilatation and Evacuation (D&E), what happens, if anything, to the remains.

I would like to know:

- are all remains disposed of, or is there usage of such tissue? If so, how is such tissue used?

- is there any usage if a whole body or parts of body is extracted from womb? If so, what are such body parts used for?

Yours faithfully,
Elliot Ikilei
