Challenge to Texas’ fetus burial law could provide first abortion test for new Supreme Court

(Worthy News) – A federal judge in Texas is weighing whether the state can require a woman to bury or cremate her aborted fetus during a trial this week that pro-life and pro-choice activists predict could be the first abortion test for a newly configured Supreme Court next year.

Abortion providers challenged the Texas law, which was enacted last year, arguing that requiring burial or cremation invades a woman’s right to privacy and is an attempt to shame a woman seeking an abortion.
