Holding: Indiana’s law relating to the disposition of fetal remains by abortion providers passes rational basis review; certiorari is denied on the question whether the state may bar the knowing provision of sex-, race- or disability-selective abortions by abortion providers, as only the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit has addressed this kind of law.
Judgment: Reversed in a per curiam opinion on May 28, 2019. Justice Thomas filed a concurring opinion. Justice Ginsburg filed an opinion concurring in part and dissenting in part. Justice Sotomayor would deny the petition for a writ of certiorari.
