AG Paxton Asks 5th Circuit to Uphold Constitutionality of Texas Law on the Humane Disposition of Fetal Remains

AUSTIN – Attorney General Ken Paxton today asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit to review and reverse a lower court’s decision blocking Texas from implementing laws requiring the humane disposition of fetal remains.

“Texas values the dignity of the unborn. Texas law prevents fetal remains from being tossed out in landfills or sewers,” Attorney General Paxton said. “We established during a weeklong district court trial in July that the law is constitutional and does not impact the abortion procedure or the availability of abortion in Texas. We’re hopeful the 5th Circuit will uphold the Texas law and reverse the lower court’s misguided ruling.”

There is no chance the purview of the federal government includes this Texas law.
