Federal Judge Has Blocked Texas Fetal Burial Law

A federal judge in Texas blocked a law mandating the burial or cremation of fetal tissue from abortions, miscarriages or ectopic pregnancy surgery in a decision on Wednesday.

U.S. District Court Judge David Ezra issued a permanent injunction prohibiting enforcement of the 2017 law, saying that it imposed “significant burdens on women seeking an abortion or experiencing pregnancy loss” and that it conveyed “minimal, if any, benefits.”

,,,”At worst,” he continued, “the challenged laws intrude into the realm of constitutional protection afforded to ‘personal decisions concerning not only the meaning of procreation but also human responsibility and respect for it.’ “
