Today SCOTUS decides whether it will hear case requiring mandatory cremation/burial for abortions

Today SCOTUS decides whether it will hear an Indiana case requiring mandatory cremation/ burial for abortions AND miscarriages based on "dignity of personhood" If they take it, & decide medical waste is a person, ROE IS DEAD. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION.

1. Does that mean amputated body parts must have a funneral?

I agree, though, if this passes, it's all over. Red states will run up absurd laws tied to reproductive rights and make the humiliation factor so high that women will not really have any choices.

3. I do not see how such a law can be upheld

The Catholic hospital where I had a D and C during/after a spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) offered to hold a service for the "remains". For the record, pathology found absolutely no fetal tissue. I declined. Turns out they went ahead and did it anyway informing me the following year when I was invited to the yearly remembrance service (when my current struggling to survive son was in NICU). I was confused at the call thinking perhaps my son in the NICU had died and lashed out at the sister offering her service. How dare they!

5. Funny, the Catholic Church wasn't always so solicitous

of life. When my mother was born, in 1920, her mother appeared to be dying after childbirth and my mother was completely neglected by the good sisters of St. Cís Hospital in lower Manhattan, under the theory, as they told the sister of the apparently dying woman, my motherís aunt, that the surviving husband wouldnít be able to take care of the infant, so it would be better if she didnít survive. My motherís aunt, took both her dying sister and niece home to their tenement, and nursed them back to life. Family story.

7. Funerals/cremations are expensive. This would economically devastate the poor.

Part of me wonders if that's a feature and not a bug of the right wing agenda... Make the poor poorer and the rich look richer by comparison.
