Idaho has a strict “dead body” policy.
You have to have the body and the body has to be removed.
So if you want to go to a funeral home and you’re a woman who’s had a lot of heartbreak, you’re not allowed to have it.
In fact, you can’t even put your feet on the ground.
So for most women, you probably don’t even have the opportunity to get a funeral.
You’re not going to see your loved ones at a funeral unless you’re absolutely sure that you have the ability to bury them.
And so, that’s kind of the way the law works in Idaho.
And in Idaho, the law requires that a person’s body is brought to the funeral home, that the body is taken to the morgue, that a morgue attendant who’s working at the funeral must take the body to the mortuary, and that there must be no disturbance to the body.
It also requires that no one should disturb the body in any way.
So the person that you’re disposing of must be completely clean, there must not be any traces of decomposition.
And they must be dressed appropriately.
They must have the right to remain silent.
And the law says, if you’re going to be cremated, the crematory has to have all of the appropriate safeguards to protect your privacy.
If the body can’t be brought to a mortuary to be put in a crematory, you cannot even bury it in a cemetery.
You cannot even dispose of it at home.
But you have to put it in the morgues.
So that’s the law.
But there are other states that have laws that don’t say that a woman can’t have a body, but there are certain restrictions.
So what’s happening in Idaho is the law is not just being enforced in Idaho but across the country.
The law is actually being enforced.
You can’t bury someone.
You are prohibited from placing a body in a funeral parlor.
And if you don’t have the funeral service, you must have a burial.
And you’re also not allowed a funeral that’s held in a hospital, even though there’s a law in Idaho that says, for all people who have a serious medical condition that requires a funeral, there can be a funeral at home, provided there’s adequate medical care.
So, you know, in many ways, Idaho is actually in the midst of a national conversation about women’s bodies.
We’ve been saying for years that women should be allowed to mourn and be able to mourn.
And we have been very vocal in Idaho on this.
And I think that women in Idaho have been able to speak up because they are the only people who really know the laws.
I mean, it’s really not even up to the state legislature to enforce these laws, because it’s up to Idaho residents.
So I think the laws are being enforced across the United States, and I think there are many other states who are also following suit.
So thank you to the people who are working to enforce the laws that women across the U.S. need.
And again, thank you so much for your time.
