Passes Unborn Child Dignity Act
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, May 26, 2016 (Cincinnati, OH) – The Ohio Senate has voted 23-10 to pass Sub. Senate Bill 254, the Unborn Child Dignity Act; lead sponsor Senator Joe Uecker (Clermont County).
The Unborn Child Dignity Act was prompted after Attorney General Mike DeWine’s investigation discovered that abortionists in the state are ignoring Ohio code requiring humane disposal of aborted babies’ bodies, with these little ones’ remains callously dumped as medical waste.
“The bodies of little aborted babies deserve the same respect and treatment as for any other deceased human being,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “The Unborn Child Dignity Act seeks to ensure that an aborted child is at least afforded dignity in death, though devalued in life.”
Sub. Senate Bill 254 now goes to the Ohio House of Representatives to be assigned to a committee, and scheduled for hearings and consideration after legislators’ summer recess.
