COLUMBUS - 

State Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) today introduced legislation aimed at addressing an appalling practice by Planned Parenthood of sending the remains of aborted babies to public landfills for disposal.
 
“Planned Parenthood continues to demonstrate utter disregard for the sanctity of human life, even in death,” said Uecker. “My proposed legislation seeks to ensure the dignity of babies whose lives ended too soon at the hands of abortionists.”
 
Uecker’s bill would limit the options for disposing of fetal remains to humane burial and cremation; increase informed consent by requiring full disclosure to women pursuing abortions; and set a penalty for any violation of the statute as a first degree misdemeanor.
 
On Friday, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the findings from an investigation which revealed Planned Parenthood’s practice of sending the remains of aborted babies to public landfills, despite the state’s requirement that aborted fetal remains be disposed of humanely.
 
A similar discovery was made in South Carolina where abortionists now face major fines for unlawfully disposing of fetal remains in public landfills.
