WASHINGTON (WTHR) — On Friday, Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) introduced a bill requiring the respectful treatment of unborn babies' bodies.

The bill is in response to the discovery of 2,246 unborn children in a late Indiana abortion doctor's home earlier this month.

The Dignity for Aborted Children Act’s co-sponsors include Sen. Todd Young (R-IN).

The bill is similar to an Indiana law, signed in 2016 by then-Governor Mike Pence and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this year, requiring the humane and dignified disposition of human fetal remains.

Additionally, Sens. Young and Braun sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General William Barr requesting assistance in the multi-state investigation.
