28 states introduce new legislation on handling of aborted baby parts

At least 28 states introduced legislation to regulate the handling of aborted babies’ body parts in the past year after the Center for Medical Progress exposed Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation. Some states have moved to ban the sale or donation of aborted baby parts, while others put forward legislation to require that their tiny bodies be cremated or buried.

Abortion activists are complaining that these new regulations add costs and administrative work for abortion clinics. However, their biggest problem appears to be that the regulations draw attention to the humanity of the unborn child.

The Nation’s Rebecca Grant wrote a piece attacking the new legislative effort this week, claiming that politicians want to mandate “funerals for fetuses.”

“What’s next—funerals for menstrual periods?” Grant wrote later in the piece.

The legislation, modeled after Americans United for Life’s Unborn Infants Dignity Act, does not require anyone to hold a funeral. It recognizes that unborn babies should be treated with the same dignity as other human beings by requiring that their dead bodies be disposed of through cremation or burial. And that seems to be abortion activists’ key problem.
