Recommended Reading: “Indiana Judge Forbids Treating Aborted Babies Like Human Beings”

October 5, 2017

Daniel Payne, a senior contributor at The Federalist, posted a piece this week about Judge Tanya Pratt’s recent ruling against the Dignity for the Unborn law.

While most national commentary focused on the fact that Pratt’s ruling allows unborn children with a Down syndrome diagnosis to continue to be targeted for abortion, Payne took a different look at Pratt’s decision. Pratt also struck the portion of the law dealing with dignified disposal of aborted human remains. Thus, allowing Indiana abortion providers to continue to treat the remains of unborn children as common medical waste.

Payne writes:

“I feel almost embarrassed having to point this out to a grown woman, but nevertheless it seems necessary: aborted fetuses are deceased humans. There is literally nothing else they can be. They are not deceased grizzly bears, or deceased Orca whales, or deceased caterpillars. This is not merely basic science but basic existential epistemology: a thing is the thing that it is, and it cannot be something it is not.

“It makes perfect sense, then, to dispose of the bodies of abortion victims in the same way we would dispose of any other human remains: respectfully and carefully, giving due reverence to the innate dignity inside every human being.”

We urge you to read Payne’s full piece at The Federalist and consider the gravity of Pratt’s recent ruling. Thankfully, our pro-life Attorney General, Curtis Hill, has already promised to appeal to a higher court.
