WASHINGTON —  The Supreme Court said Tuesday it is upholding a 2016 Indiana abortion law regarding the burial of fetal remains.

SCOTUS ruled 7-2 to uphold the provision that requires fetal remains to be cremated or buried instead of being treated as hazardous medical waste.

However, the justices declined to hear arguments on a part of that same law that prohibited abortions on the basis of race, sex, or disability of the fetus.

An appeals court blocked that part of the law from taking effect.

SCOTUS says it won’t hear the case until other Courts of Appeal have issued rulings.
