Socialists want to change definition of “human remains” to facilitate abortions
Socialists want to change definition of “human remains” to facilitate abortions

.- Spain’s Socialist government has proposed a new law that, if approved, would change the definition of “human remains” in order to exclude the remains of aborted babies and thus diminish public pressure over abortion clinics.

Current law in Spain considers the human remains from abortion to be “cadavers,” requiring that they be transported in a funeral service vehicle under appropriate conditions to a cemetery for cremation or burial.

The socialist proposal would modify current law to exclude the remains of babies aborted up to the 28th week from the definition of “human remains.”

Pro-life organizations have pointed out that advances in science have made it possible for pre-mature babies that are 28 weeks old or even less to survive outside the womb.  They point to the recent case of Amillia, born at 22 weeks in the United States.

If the new law is approved, the remains of the unborn babies who are 28 weeks or younger will be considered “trash” or “recyclable”. 

According to statistics from the Ministry of Health, more than 12,000 abortions take place between the thirteenth and the twenty-ninth week.
