Ensures Humane Treatment of Aborted Babies’ Remains
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, December 2, 2016 (Cincinnati, OH) – Late May, the Ohio Senate passed 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 investigated and 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.
Ohio’s Unborn Child Dignity Act ensures humane treatment of aborted babies’ bodies– deserving of the same respect as any other deceased human being.
Sub. Senate Bill 254 is now in the Ohio House Health & Aging Committee but has not yet been scheduled for hearings and vote. If the legislature does not address the bill in the next week or so before the end of the year, it will die.
ACTION: Please call the following today and request that they pass Sub. Senate Bill, 254, the Unborn Child Dignity Act:
- Ohio Senate President Keith Faber
- Speaker of the House Cliff Rosenberger
- Members of the House Health & Aging Committee
Note: Texas now requires proper burial of aborted babies’ bodies. Why not Ohio?
