Ohio Senate passes bill to require burial, cremation of fetal remains after abortion

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would require the burial or cremation of fetal remains after a surgical abortion.

Under Senate Bill 27, which passed 24-7, people who violate the requirement would face a first-degree misdemeanor. Facilities that perform abortions, including workers at public hospitals, could be subject to the charges.

Women seeking abortions would have to express in writing, through a form the Ohio Department of Health develops, whether she wants the fetal remains to be buried or cremated. Minors seeking an abortion would first have to obtain consent from a parent, guardian or court. SB 27 states if a woman declines to “exercise the rights under the bill,” then the abortion facility would have to determine whether to cremate or bury the remains.

The pregnant woman wouldn’t be charged under the bill.

3. I would like to amend their bill to include semen.

All men in Ohio need to bury their semen (potential life!!!) after any ejaculation that occurs outside of intimate encounters with their wives.

Under His Eye!
