ACLU, Planned Parenthood win temporarily halt to Ohio law requiring humane disposal of the remains of aborted babies

Published on

Four months after the Ohio legislature passed Senate Bill 27and three months after pro-life Gov. Mike DeWine signed the measure into law, an Ohio judge Monday temporarily halted the requirement that abortion facilities bury or cremate the remains of aborted babies, ensuring they will not be disposed of as medical waste. The bill was scheduled to take effect today.

“In addition to the ACLU of Ohio and ACLU, the lawsuit was filed last month by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Fanon A. Rucker of The Cochran Firm-OH on behalf of Ohio abortion providers.” Laura Hancock reported.

When Gov. DeWine signed the Unborn Child Dignity Act, Ohio Right to Life said it would  “promote the dignity of the unborn through proper burial by requiring the Ohio Department of Health to establish rules for the proper disposal of products of conception and define ‘humane disposal’ as earthly burial or cremation.”

“After years of hard work and dedication, the Unborn Child Dignity Act has finally been signed into law,” said Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life said. “No longer will the tiny bodies of babies whose lives have been tragically taken by abortion be treated like trash. In Ohio, we respect life and we bury our dead. The abortion industry, which has for decades tried to convince women that the lives of their children don’t matter and should simply be thrown away, will now be unable to hide behind this blatant lie.”

The Unborn Child Dignity Act was first introduced in 2016, following an investigation by then Attorney General Mike DeWine into Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facility practices in Ohio. The investigation found that Planned Parenthood’s Ohio locations had been sending aborted fetal remains to landfills. However, since the Ohio Revised Code did not define “humane” disposal, the state of Ohio was unable to take legal action.
