ACLU and Abortion Businesses Challenge Ohio "Unborn Child Dignity Act" in Court

The ACLU is partnering with abortionists to sue the state of Ohio over a law that would require abortionists to bury or cremate the bodies of unborn children, rather than treat them as medical waste.

At the end of 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed into law the Unborn Child Dignity Act. This law, which is scheduled to go into effect on April 6, would require abortion businesses to give women the ability to choose whether their child is cremated or buried after abortion. If the mother does not decide, then the abortion businesses must choose. Abortion businesses that don't follow these rules would be guilty of first-degree misdemeanors.

The pro-abortion litigants call the law "frivolous and medically unnecessary," but the actions of abortion businesses don't back up this claim. In 2015, an investigation by then-Attorney General Mike DeWine found that three Planned Parenthood facilities disposed of the bodies of aborted babies by dumping them in landfills.

Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Alison Hatheway denied the abortion clinics' request for a temporary restraining order against the law since it doesn't go into effect until next month. More arguments will be heard before the law is scheduled to take effect.
