Local media outlets cover passage of prolife legislation in Michigan Senate

Different local media outlets including the Niles Daily Star, WTVB and WLNS covered the passage of legislation to revise how abortion clinics dispose of aborted children. The legislation was first introduced after the remains of a number of aborted children were found in an abortion clinic dumpster.

From the Niles Daily Star:
“Life is a gift that should be protected and cherished,” said Proos, R-St. Joseph. “That is why I was shocked and disgusted when I heard about a situation in Michigan where a medical clinic was disposing of baby remains by throwing them into the trash. This practice is unsafe, unsanitary and immoral.”

Senate Bill 25 would establish requirements for the proper disposal of fetal remains. Under a companion measure, SB 54, physicians would be required to inform parents that state law mandates them to decide how the remains would be handled.
