A federal judge on Wednesday blocked a Texas law that would require the burial or cremation of any fetal remains.

U.S. District Judge David Ezra wrote in his ruling issuing the permanent injunction that the law would cause a “near catastrophic” failure of the health-care system for women of childbearing age in Texas.

Passed in 2017, the law would have required health-care facilities to bury or cremate fetal remains — whether they are the result of an abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth or an ectopic pregnancy — regardless of a patients’ wishes.

Ezra, an appointee of President Reagan, wrote in his decision that the measure “would be a violation of a woman’s right to obtain a legal abortion under the law as it stands today.”
