FETAL REMAINS LAW


A JUDGE HAS TEMPORARILY BLOCKED ENFORCEMENT OF AN OHIO LAW REQUIRING FETAL REMAINS FROM SURGICAL ABORTIONS TO BE CREMATED OR BURIED. 
THE LAW WAS TO GO INTO EFFECT TODAY UNTIL HAMILTON COUNTY JUDGE ALISON HATHEWAY'S DECISION YESTERDAY, WHICH MARKED A VICTORY FOR CLINICS WHOSE LAWSUIT ARGUES A LACK OF RULES MAKES COMPLYING IMPOSSIBLE, EFFECTIVELY BANNING ABORTIONS. THE DISPUTED LAW AIMS TO REPLACE A PREVIOUS LAW THAT REQUIRED FETAL REMAINS TO BE DISPOSED OF 'IN A HUMANE MANNER,' BUT WITHOUT DEFINING 'HUMANE.'
