Every human being
deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, in life and in death. We support
treating human bodies with dignity and not desecration. Regardless of age, born
or unborn, no human remains should end up as medical waste. As Archbishop
Joseph F. Nauman said of a similar bill in Congress, this bill is "in
keeping with society's treatment of all other deceased persons".
