WEB Notes: So a Federal Judge overruled state law. What happened to the right of the states? What a lack of value for life here. If the baby is murdered by a doctor, it is discarded as “medical waste”. Lord have mercy on our souls.
Last week, U.S. District Judge David Ezra struck down a Texas law that would require hospitals and clinics to bury or cremate fetal remains of pre-born babies instead of discarding them as medical waste.
In the 53-page ruling, Ezra said, that requiring this would place a burden on a woman’s “right” to an abortion.
“[T]he court finds the challenged laws impose significant burdens on women seeking an abortion or experiencing pregnancy loss (1) by requiring women’s healthcare facilities to use unreliable and nonviable waste disposal options and thus reducing access to abortion in Texas and (2) by enshrining one view of the status of and respect that should be given to embryonic and fetal tissue remains thereby burdening a woman’s abortion decision,” he wrote.
“At worst,” he said, “the challenged laws intrude into the realm of constitutional protection afforded to ‘personal decisions concerning not only the meaning of procreation but also human responsibility and respect for it.”
