Rep. Ray Ward proposed this amendment to continue to allow medical facilities and abortion clinics to dispose of fetal remains as medical waste. This defeats the purpose of the bill which was to require healthcare facilities to handle the fetal remains with respect and dignity rather than tossing them in with other medical waste. This amendment was the split into two parts - Part 2 refers specifically to miscarried fetal remains.
