Texas abortion provider says fetal tissue burial rule is 'offensive'


The Texas limitations would be more stringent than regulations in almost every other state, which allow aborted fetal tissue to be disposed of the same as other human tissue, according to the Guttmacher Institute, an abortion rights group.Craig Warner, a Texas Attorney General's office lawyer, told the court "there is no language on individual cremations or individual burials" in the regulation. He also said the measure would not greatly add to costs.During his questioning of Warner, Sparks said the measure appeared to offer "more respect" to fetal tissue than other tissue yielded from the reproductive process.Anti-abortion Republicans proposed new restrictions in several states after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down some Texas regulations in June.The Supreme Court said provisions of the Texas law requiring abortion doctors to have difficult-to-obtain "admitting privileges" at local hospitals and requiring clinics to have costly hospital-grade facilities violated a woman's right to an abortion.
