Ohio Humane Disposal Law Halted by Planned Parenthood Lawsuit

An Ohio law requiring abortion businesses to bury or cremate the remains of aborted children would have gone into effect on Tuesday. Unfortunately, an Ohio judge responded to a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU on Monday by temporarily halting the requirement.

The Unborn Child Dignity Act was signed into law three months ago after originally being introduced in 2016. Mike DeWine (who was Ohio's Attorney General at the time, but is now the state's governor) conducted an investigation into Planned Parenthood's abortion practices in response to undercover footage showing that other affiliates harvested and sold body parts from aborted babies. DeWine did not find evidence that this was occurring in Ohio, but he did find that the remains of aborted children were simply being sent to landfills.

The Unborn Child Dignity Act would require abortion businesses in Ohio to treat aborted children as more than trash. Unfortunately, Planned Parenthood is unwilling to take even that small step.
