In an article by Michael Gryboski Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses are fighting against an Ohio law that requires all the remains of the aborted child are to be cremated or interred, and the apparent purpose of the law which was signed into effect in late December 2020 is to seemingly make it impossible for aborted human body parts to be used by researchers, yet Freda Levenson has a different theory.
Freda Levenson, legal director for the ACLU of Ohio, said in a statement released Friday that she believed the law would have “a devastating impact on the ability of patients to have autonomy over their own lives.”
“The effect of the law will be to delay procedural abortions, forcing patients to carry an unwanted pregnancy for weeks or months and then to undergo riskier and more expensive procedures,” stated Levenson. “Finally, the law imposes a funeral ritual on every patient, regardless of their own religious and spiritual beliefs. Judicial relief is critical to ensure patients are able to exercise their constitutionally protected right to obtain essential health care and determine the course of their own lives.”
An interesting twist in the bill is that it makes the Doctor the responsible entity if there is a lawsuit brought. This will make Doctors think twice about performing the abortion procedure in the first place.
“(H)(1) Subject to divisions (H)(2) and (3) of this section, any physician who performs or
induces an abortion with actual knowledge that the conditions specified in division (B) of this section
have not been satisfied or with a heedless indifference as to whether those conditions have been
satisfied is liable in compensatory and exemplary damages in a civil action to any person, or the
representative of the estate of any person, who sustains injury, death, or loss to person or property as
a result of the failure to satisfy those conditions. In the civil action, the court additionally may enter
any injunctive or other equitable relief that it considers appropriate.” Text of bill HERE.
With these changes to their laws, Ohio has made some definitive statements about what they will and will not allow. Time will tell how successful the new law will be.
