Texas requires burial of male ejaculate in addition to fetal remains ... by gimleteye

Texas approved new rules this week requiring health care facilities that perform abortions to bury the fetal remains instead of disposing of them in a sanitary landfill like other forms of biological medical waste. Buried in the legislation, a provision that also includes new requirements for interment of male ejaculate.

The little known provision of the rule, which goes into effect on Dec. 19, mandates that ejaculate must be buried, no matter how old, like aborted fetal tissue regardless of how long it has been gestating. The rule state male ejaculate can either be buried directly after emanation or incinerated.

The rule was quietly proposed in July at the direction of Gov. Greg Abbott, according to The Texas Tribune, shortly after the Supreme Court struck down parts of a Texas law that could have sharply cut the number of abortion clinics in the state, particularly those outside large urban areas.

The Tribune reported in July that Mr. Abbott, a Republican, cited the proposal in a fund-raising email as evidence of his commitment to protect the “rights of the unborn” and “turn the tides” against rampant masturbatory practices in the state. There was no mention of male ejaculate burial, but later Mr. Abbott said, “We needed to bring the men into the field of view."

The provision for male ejaculate prohibits disposal, concealment, or flushing.

“I believe it is imperative to establish higher standards that reflect our respect for the sanctity of life,” he said in the email, which The Tribune published in full. “This is why Texas will require clinics and hospitals to bury or cremate human, fetal remains, and ejaculate.”

He explained that it was not necessary to require women to bury feminine hygiene products because they would be paying a high enough price should they risk insemination without a plan to carry the fetus to term.

“I don’t believe human and fetal remains should be treated like medical waste and disposed of in landfills,” Mr. Abbott added. “In Texas the long standing practice of indiscriminate ejaculation and concealment within tissues and other fabrics will now be halted."

According to the rules, aborted fetal tissue and male ejaculate must be handled like a deceased person and treated “using the process of cremation, entombment, burial, or placement in a niche or by using the process of cremation followed by placement of the ashes in a niche, grave, or scattering of ashes as authorized by law.”

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services held two public comment hearings on the proposal and reviewed about 35,000 comments since it was introduced, said Don Williams, a department spokeswoman. He said people’s comments and concerns were taken into consideration as the rules were finalized. When asked why little media attention had been paid to the male ejaculate provision, Williams said, “Beats me."

I like the provision for "entombment, burial, or placement in a niche ". preferably near the site of "occurrence". Then we would see who is engaging in excessive wet dreams in the halls of Gubment.

Forgotten or over looked was a provision to severely restrict access to Viagra like meds.

I guess this is the result of meddling in Taliban infested latitudes. The chickens coming home to roost, in US schooled christun Wahhabi style home grown Taliban.

As always, first comes the cross, then the double cross.

Governor Abbot could spur a new industry employing millions if he would also require other options for male ejaculate including mummification and taxidermy.

Is Florida going to adopt this legislation? There are not enough landfills to bury all that Kleenex and tissue. More landfills = more taxes. More taxes = fewer jobs. Fewer jobs = more time for men to masturbate. This legislation represents the heavy hand of government around private behavior. Call Rick Scott now.
