(Worthy News) – A federal judge has blocked a Texas law from going into effect that would force clinics to bury or cremate fetal remains after an abortion.
The permanent injunction was issued Wednesday by U.S. District Judge David Ezra in Austin, Texas. In his decision, Ezra said that the law placed a “substantial obstacle” in the way of women who seek abortions.
“The evidence in this case overwhelmingly demonstrated that if the challenged laws were to go into effect now, they would likely cause a near catastrophic failure of the healthcare system designed to serve women of childbearing age within the state of Texas,” Ezra wrote in the decision. The law required every healthcare facility in the state to provide a death certificate and proper burial for any fetal tissue. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
