Planned Parenthood Challenges Texas Law Requiring Proper Burial for Aborted Babies

The abortion chain Planned Parenthood will argue against a Texas law Monday that requires its abortion facilities to bury or cremate aborted babies’ remains.

It requires that abortion facilities, hospitals and other health clinics to bury or cremate the remains of aborted and miscarried babies. Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups lobbied against the bill, but the legislature passed it with strong support.

Abortion activists have not given up the fight. On Monday, Planned Parenthood is scheduled to argue against the law at a hearing in front of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Spectrum News reports.
