Note to the Press – Please include the following statement from State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) in your coverage of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on House Enrolled Act 1337 (2016), co-authored by Bacon:
“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.”
State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) represents House District 75,
which includes portions of Warrick, Pike and Spencer counties.
