COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Planned Parenthood says it follows Ohio law for the disposal of fetal tissue and calls a report by the Ohio Attorney General alleging the agency of wrongdoing inflammatory.
Stephanie Kight, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, says the agency handles medical tissue disposal in line with other health care providers.
Kight says the agency’s agreements with waste disposal vendors requires them to follow state law and dispose of tissue accordingly.
DeWine calls such disposal callous and says it violates Ohio rules calling for humane disposal of fetal tissue.
DeWine says his office will sue next week to stop Planned Parenthood’s three Ohio affiliates from landfill disposal of aborted fetuses.
