Texas's terrible new abortion regulation is a con aimed at low-information/anti-abortion voters
Boing Boing

Texas passed a new regulation requiring "cremation or burial" of fetal tissue after a miscarriage or medical abortion, and to hear the lawmakers who passed this idiotic rule, this requires grieving women to dress up minute scraps of tissue in little funeral suits and stand contrite over a tiny casket while a clergyman excoriates them for disappointing god with their selfish uteruses.The reality is that the Texas regulators do not have the right to reclassify fetal tissue as "human remains" (which is the only kind of tissue that funeral homes can dispose of) -- so fetal tissue remains "medical waste." Guess how we get rid of medical waste? It's either incinerated ("cremated") or sterilized and sent to a landfill ("buried").So, basically, all the chest-thumping about treating fetuses as dead babies is just a snow-job to make the low-information voters cheering on these idiots feel good about controlling women and their naughty reproductive organs.
