US: Ohio Governor Signs Bill Obligating Aborting Mothers To Bear Cost of Cremation Or Burial of Fetus

Ohio State Governor. Mike DeWine, on Wednesday signed a bill requiring women to either cremate or bury fetal remains from surgical abortions.

The bill signed into law states that “pregnant woman is responsible for the costs related to the final disposition of the fetal remains at the chosen location.”

If cremation is chosen, the fetus must also be placed in a “grave, crypt, or niche,” the measure states.

Whoever fails to follow the bill’s requirements will face “a misdemeanor of the first degree.”

Planned Parenthood has however,  slammed the bill as unnecessary and described it as another attack against women.

Lauren Powell, a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio, told newsmen. “This is honestly just a familiar ploy by these lawmakers who use the chaos of the end of year session to try and pass these unpopular bills.”

She added, “Studies have repeatedly shown that the majority of Ohioans support access to safe and legal abortion care. This is not something that is intended to promote patient safety or access to care. Really, it’s just another attack.”

Meanwhile, the Republican governor, has another abortion bill on his desk that would ban the use of telemedicine during abortions. Doctors who fail to comply with the law would face criminal charges.
