I can't really think of a good reason why not, except I'll admit that the concept of having an abortion and then wanting to grieve over the baby's body, who died becuase of her choice, strikes me as more than a little bit odd. Seems like it would just make the mother feel horrible, but I guess if that's what she wants to do I don't see why someone else should tell her she can't.

while I can find no reason that we should deny that, I imagine it would be pretty rare for someone to want to do it.... but I'm sure there are some.....

have rights to the fetus' remains? Should they be allowed to have the remains to bury if they wish? WDYT?[/b]
Yes. An aborted fetus is not necessarily an unwanted fetus, and the woman should be able to grieve that loss in any way she feels necessary. Telling a woman she can not have the remains is making abortion out to be a shameful choice, which it is not.

I see no reason why she shouldn't be allowed.

However, it WOULD make me wonder... Unless the abortion was a health thing, if your baby was real enough to mourn, why wasn't it real enough to live? Hmm... Kinda goes along with the whole post-abortion syndrome thing i guess... (sorry, i can't remember what it's called ).

I know at places that perform late term abortions for health reasons allow you to have the fetus to bury or have a ceremony, or some even offer those services themselves.

An abortion for a health risk isn't really an abortion, in my opinion. There really is no choice. Abortion, however is a choice. An abortion to me, is having a normal, healthy pregnancy and choosing to not give birth.

I see no reason why someone who was faced with losing their life and the child's life wouldn't be allowed to keep the remains to bury and grieve for. I also see no reason why someone who willingly had an abortion would want the remains, unless they had remorse or regret over their decision at the time.

Either way, I think out of respect for the remains, they should have to bury them or cremate them. I don't think anything weird or abnormal should be allowed to occur with the remains.
