Braun reintroduces Dignity for Aborted Children Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Mike Braun has reintroduced his bill to ensure that fetal remains are treated with respect: the Dignity for Aborted Children Act.

The Dignity for Aborted Children Act was inspired by the disturbing discovery of over 2,000 aborted fetal remains in the home of an Indiana abortion doctor in 2019.

The bill enforces guidelines for the dignified handling of aborted fetal remains and penalties for failing to respect the sanctity of human life.

“All human remains, regardless of stage of life, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and I’m proud to introduce the Dignity for Aborted Children Act to ensure that the remains of aborted children are given the respect they deserve and not treated as medical waste.”

About the Dignity for Aborted Children Act:

Requires abortion providers 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

Requires 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.
