Abortion facility sues to overturn Indiana laws requiring proper disposal of fetal remains

Three anonymous women along with the owner of the Indianapolis Women’s Center, an abortion facility in Indiana, are suing to overturn the state’s fetal disposal laws, which were previously upheld by the US Supreme Court. Previously, Planned Parenthood sued the state in 2016, claiming it violated due process, and made abortion facilities incur extra and unnecessary costs.

The Indianapolis Star reported that in addition to being filed on behalf of Indianapolis Women’s Center and three alleged patients, the suit was filed for the facility’s owner and two nurse practitioners there. “These laws also send the unmistakable message that someone who has had an abortion or miscarriage is responsible for the death of a person,” the lawsuit says. “As a result, they have caused many abortion and miscarriage patients, including Jane Doe Nos. 1, 2, and 3, to experience shame, stigma, anguish, and anger.”

Yet Attorney General Curtis Hill told the Indianapolis Star that he is confident law will again be upheld, as it was last year by the Supreme Court. “We took our fight for Indiana’s law on the disposition of fetal remains all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and we won,” Hill said. “We are now reviewing this latest lawsuit, but I can tell you now that we will once again defend humanity, and I am quite confident that Indiana’s law will continue to stand strong.“

States began mandating fetal disposal laws after undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress exposed barbaric practices within the abortion industry. Rather than dispose of the preborn babies they kill respectfully, abortionists and their staff only further rip the children of their humanity by throwing them away like trash. Abortion facilities have been caught throwing bodies into dumpsters, dumping them into sewers, storing them in freezers, keeping them as trophies, and burning them in bonfires. It is for this reason that regulations must be put into place, because without them, the abortion industry will clearly not take the time — or, as Planned Parenthood complained, spend the money — to bury or cremate preborn children with respect or dignity.
