SCOTUS upholds block on Indiana "sex/race selective abortion" ban but upholds fetal burial/cremation

Last edited Tue May 28, 2019, 12:30 PM - Edit history (1)

The Supreme Court said Tuesday that a provision of an Indiana law which said the state may prohibit abortions motivated solely by race, sex or disability should remain blocked.

The court, however, did say it would allow part of the law that requires clinics to bury or cremate fetal remains to take effect.

The fact that the court decided not to take up the more controversial provision of the Indiana law suggests that there is not a current appetite on the court to move aggressively to question the court's core abortion precedents of Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood. Still, supporters of abortion rights will be disappointed and worried that the justices allowed the fetal tissue provision to go into effect.

The law was signed in March 2016 by then-Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. It was blocked last year from going into effect by the 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals.

Similarly to a burial, the cost of a cremation in Indiana can vary, depending upon which cremation services provider you contact and what type of cremation service you select. A basic cremation (direct cremation) can cost anywhere between $795 and $3,000. Low cost direct cremations are available from a number of providers. The DFS Memorials providers in Indiana all offer the best value direct cremation prices in their area. A cremation with a service typically costs between $1,500 and $4,000. This can depend upon the type of service you opt for, and whether you purchase or rent a casket.

1. Aren't clinics suppose to deal with it as medical waste anyway?

All things considered, it was kind of a silly thing for Indiana to put in their bill. The other part of the bill was far more important.

2. Yes, they are supposed to, however, now the law requires them to deal with a funeral home.

 

And that means paying the costs incurred by the funeral home.

5. That's the law concerning burial or cremation. Cremation costs $750 - $3000 without a 'service.'

 

It will also prevent the donation of fetal tissue from abortions from being used for research, being that it must be cremated or interred.

6. It's in effect an institution of religion,

Not surprised they refused to take it up at this time. Unlike this writer, many believe it's inevitable that the people being appointed will eventually move to criminalize abortion, and perhaps much more, such as some kinds of contraception -- or all contraception.

Incredible as it sounds, the "right to privacy" that underlies all this was only "inferred" in the 1970s after CT outlawed contraception. In a first decision the justices decided married people had a right to use it, and to not have the police tossing their homes looking for it. It took a second case to decide everyone did. Some born since then may think that was back in the stone ages, and it sure sounds like it, but it wasn't. And now the same as then, a right to control one's reproduction, including the right to have children at all, is still stated nowhere in the constitution, only inferred from various places.
