Last week, Ohio’s Attorney General Mike DeWine released the findings of an investigation that showed aborted baby parts from Ohio’s Planned Parenthood branch were ending up in landfills. Planned Parenthood Ohio denied the allegations, while adding that any questions relating to disposal should be directed to the service that they use–not them. DeWine said the manner in which Planned Parenthood disposed of aborted baby parts violated the state’s administrative code, which states that a “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.” He referred this incident to the Department of Health, prompting Planned Parenthood to file a lawsuit against the state (via CNN):
That injunction was granted earlier today:
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has been under siege since the Center for Medical Progress released a series of undercover videos showing officials from the non-profit allegedly engaging in the illegal sale of human body parts. On top of the lawsuit, the organization is raising $20 million to spend on next year’s elections.
Right now, the Ohio legislature is considering legislation that would require abortion clinics and hospitals to dispose of aborted babies by either burial or cremation, according to the Associated Press. They added that pro-abortion activists see this legislative push as a way to "shame women" who have undergone an abortion.
Brace yourselves; we're about to have an overblown and unnecessary fight about how one should properly dispose of a human being. It's come to this.
Thank You Townhall and Mr Vespa.
