COLUMBUS, Ohio (Life News) – A federal judge has blocked Ohio officials from enforcing state law by stopping three Planned Parenthood abortion clinics from illegally dumping aborted babies in local landfills.
The Planned Parenthood abortion business in Ohio whose three clinics were caught illegally dumping aborted babies at landfills has struck back at the very state officials who caught them breaking state law. The abortion company filed a lawsuit against state officials claiming the investigations that resulted in catching the abortion business were politically motivated.
After Planned Parenthood was caught potentially breaking multiple federal laws to sell the body parts of aborted babies, multiple states began investigations of the nation’s largest abortion business. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the results of his investigation and he indicates the abortion giant appears to be breaking state laws regarding the disposal of the bodies of aborted babies. The abortion business pays to have aborted babies “steam cooked” before dumping them in landfills.
“All three Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates have sent fetal remains to companies which disposed of the fetuses in landfill,” the investigative report indicates. “Additionally, the Planned Parenthood facility in Bedford Heights stated it uses only one company for disposal. However, that company stated to investigators it does not accept fetal remains for disposal as a corporate policy.”
“Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” DeWine said. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”
The Attorney General argued that this is in violation of Ohio Revised Code (3701-47-05), which requires that aborted fetal remains be disposed humanely.
But a judge has blocked the state from enforcing the law while the lawsuit continues. The judge said Planned Parenthood could suffer “irreparable harm” if the state filed a lawsuit, and the organization stands “some likelihood of success” in prevailing in a court battle.
Meanwhile, pro-life legislators filed a bill in the Ohio legislature on Monday to require Planned Parenthood and all abortion clinics in the state to provide a proper burial or cremation for aborted babies.
State Rep. Barbara Sears, a Republican from suburban Toledo, said the bill she’s co-sponsoring is not restricting a woman’s choice to get an abortion. “What we’re doing is saying there needs to be a respectful way once that’s occurred,” Sears told reporters.
Ohio Right to Life expressed their support of this bill.
