Judge delays Texas’ fetal remains rule until Jan. 6

Judge Sam Sparks ruled Thursday afternoon that the Texas Department of State Health Services would have to push back its start date requiring health providers to bury or cremate aborted fetuses. The rule, which had been scheduled to take effect Monday, would prohibit Texas health providers from disposing of fetal remains in sanitary landfills, regardless of gestation period.
