COLUMBUS—State Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) today announced the Senate passage of legislation aimed at addressing the appalling abortion industry practice of desecrating aborted fetal remains by disposing of them via public landfills.
 
“The abortion industry’s practice of sending these dead babies to landfills only further demonstrates an utter disregard for the sanctity of human life,” said Uecker. “This law takes steps to help protect the dignity of babies whose lives ended too soon at the hands of abortionists.”

Provisions of the bill state that an abortion facility can only dispose of aborted remains through the use of cremation or interment and grants the mother the right to determine the final disposition of the remains.

Under current law, the Ohio Revised Code does not contain procedures regarding the disposal of aborted infant remains. 

Senate Bill 28 now goes to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
