Supreme Court allows Indiana abortion law governing disposal of fetal remains, but won’t revive ban on so-called ‘discriminatory’ abortions


breaking us news supreme court

(Worthy News) - The Supreme Court on Tuesday reversed an appeals court ruling striking down an Indiana abortion law governing the disposal of fetal remains, which was signed by Vice President Mike Pence when he was governor of the state.

The law, among other provisions, barred the incineration of fetal remains alongside surgical byproducts.

The announcement, which comes as conservative states across the country are passing laws in the hopes of prompting the top court to review its abortion precedents, noted that the Indiana law did not implicate the “undue burden” test that has formed the crux of many challenges to restrictive abortion laws.
