Texas to Begin Requiring Burial or Cremation for Aborted Children

Texas abortion Greg Abbott governor

New regulations proposed by Texas governor Greg Abbott will go into effect on December 19th of this year, requiring all facilities that perform abortion procedures to cremate or bury the resulting human remains. This will effectively add thousands of dollars of additional cost to the operation — a development that proponents of the new rules hope will serve as an added deterrence to the court legalized epidemic of fetal genocide occurring in the U.S. over the past 40+ years.


Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973, over 54 million abortions have been performed in the U.S. — the largest source of violent death dealt to Americans (by far) of all time (greater than the deaths from all wars, murders, and car accidents combined) — a staggering number that represents about 17% of the current population of the states; and this number is no exaggeration. Politifact, a left of center “fact checking” organization, agrees that Congressman’s Smith’s statistic is a very close estimate of the actual number.

Previous to the establishment of these new rules, human remains resulting from abortion procedures were (are) tossed in a landfill with other common “trash.” The new Texas rules will require the same treatment generally afforded the remains of other human beings when they expire; treatment that has previously been denied — a result consequent to a long timeline of fetal dehumanization campaigns and propaganda by “progressives.”

Below is the text of the new regulation particularly related to aborted human tissue. You can view it in its entirety by clicking here.

(B)The products of spontaneous or induced human abortion shall be subjected to one of the following methods of treatment and disposal:  (i)fetal tissue, regardless of the period of gestation, except as provided by §1.133 of this title (relating to Scope, Covering Exemptions and Minimum Parametric Standards for Waste Treatment Technologies Previously Approved by the Texas Department of State Health Services):  (I)incineration followed by interment;  (II)steam disinfection followed by interment; or  (III)interment;

The ethical arguments against abortion are immense and have supporters across all ideological bents — including libertarians like Judge Andrew Napolitano; a man who had this to say in a recent interview:

Judge: My opposition to abortion is … because of the rational examination of the baby growing in the womb and a belief in the non-aggression principle. The non-aggression principle prevents you from interfering with the life or the property of another human being without moral justification. There is no moral justification for killing a child in the womb.

What do you think of the new Texas regulations related to aborted tissue? Will the total number of abortions be reduced by the deterrence of additional cost? Do you disagree with the regulation? Let us know on Facebook or in the comments below.
