R.I.P. headstoneLiberal media is doing its usual thing to see that a bill dealing with family and life values is defeated.

Frank Ryan (R), a retired Marine colonel who now serves Ohio as a state representative for Lebanon County, has introduced H.B. 1890, a measure that stems from his personal experience after having a stillborn child. When he and his wife sought their child's remains for burial, they were told the body had been destroyed, as it was considered to be medical waste. So Ryan has sponsored a bill that would give parents the right to obtain the remains of stillborn, miscarried, or aborted babies so that they may be buried like any other deceased loved one.

"This doesn't impose any responsibility on anyone other than a family that wishes to be able to take the remains of their child and bury them or to have them cremated and then the cremated remains be with their family plot and their family," he explains.”

Ryan tells OneNewsNow one liberal reporter, Ivey DeJesus of PennLive.com, has printed a good deal of misinformation.

"She said my bill mandates a death certificate, which it does not, [that] it mandates a funeral, which it does not," he explains. "It merely -- and I hate to use the word 'merely' because you're denied the right to do this; it's more than a merely -- but it allows a family that would like to have the remains of their child to have them and that they'd be notified that they can have them at their own expense."

Ryan says he understands if a family declines the remains, but parents who want to bury or cremate should not be denied.

The representative says his measure is "substantially similar to" Indiana legislation that was recently declared constitutional by the United State Supreme Court.

The Ohio House has approved the measure, and it has been sent it to the Senate.
