As reported by LifeNews, Texas’s Health and Human Services Commission is implementing new rules requiring abortion providers to cremate or bury the bodies of aborted babies.
Current rules allow aborted babies’ bodies to be treated as any other medical waste.
A spokesperson for Gov. Greg Abbott conveyed the governor’s support in comments to LifeNews:
“Governor Abbott believes human and fetal remains should not be treated like medical waste, and the proposed rule changes affirms the value and dignity of all life. For the unborn, the mothers and the hospital and clinic staff, the governor believes it is imperative to establish higher standards that reflect our respect for the sanctity of life. Further, it is Governor Abbott’s hope that the legislature will consider legislation next session to enshrine the new rules into state law.”
One more reason to like Texas.
And why isn’t Gov. Greg Abbott on the short list for vice president?
