New Texas rules requiring a dignified burial of aborted babies’ bodies will go into effect on Dec. 19, state health officials said this week.
The new rules, introduced in July by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, require that abortion facilities, hospitals and other medical centers either cremate or bury the remains of aborted and miscarried babies. State officials said the rules do not apply to miscarriages or abortions that take place at home.
But Wendy Davis is not happy.
“Once again, Governor Abbott and his political appointees are demonstrating a greater interest in scoring cheap political points than they are in governing in the best interests of the state. This rule will no doubt create an undue burden on women seeking abortion in our state, yet another thinly veiled attempt to assert a ‘legitimate state interest’ when the real objective is closing off access to constitutionally protected abortion care.”
