U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) co-sponsored legislation to enforce guidelines for the dignified handling of the remains of unborn childrenand penalties for failing to respect the sanctity of human life. The legislation comes after the disturbing discovery of over 2,000 remains of unborn children in the home of an Indiana abortion doctor this month.

“The disgusting actions by the abortion doctor in Indiana who held the remains of unborn childrenis a total disregard for life and any similar occurrence should have strict punishment,” said Senator Tillis. “This legislation would ensure the remains of unborn children are treated as any other human so they get the burial they deserve.”

The bill requires abortion providers to dispose of the remains of unborn children just as any other human being.Failure to do so is punishable by a fine and up to 5 years in prison. The legislation also requires a consent form so the mother can choose to retain possession of her unborn child or allow the provider to cremate or inter the unborn child. Failure of the provider to execute these forms is punishable by civil penalty.

The Dignity for Abortion Children Act has been endorsed by Susan B. Anthony List, March for Life, the Family Research Council, National Right to Life, and Concerned Women for America.
