This bill seeks to promote the dignity of the unborn through proper burial while strengthening Ohio’s laws on informed consent. Deceased unborn infants deserve the same respect as other human beings. Currently, the Ohio Revised Code prohibits the trafficking of the products of conception (2919.14) yet fails to establish protocols regarding the humane disposal of aborted infants. Several states, including Indiana, have enacted legislation to ensure that miscarried, stillborn, or aborted infants are treated with dignity. If enacted, this legislation would require the Ohio Department of Health to establish rules for the proper disposal of products of conception and define “humane disposal” as earthly burial or cremation.
