“Indiana’s fetal remains law protects the dignity of human life by requiring the respectful and humane disposal of aborted babies. While I am pleased the U.S. Supreme Court reversed an appeals court ruling blocking our law regarding fetal remains, I am concerned that the court declined to rule on another important part of this law. No life should be terminated on the basis of race, sex or disability such as Down syndrome. Every human being should have every right for a chance at life, and I am confident this issue will be before the courts again.”
