    If the fetus is miscarried at home should it be treated as a baby and have a service or other options other then being a biohazard?

      Oh definitely, Morticians should provide a special $5000. service. They could have and open cigar box coffin.  The fetus should be laid out for three days so all the out of town guests can make it.  Instead of flowers they could just make arrangements out of seeds.Two kids from day care can be used as pall bearers.  The fetus can be pulled in an REO speedwagon to the cemetary and placed in the traditional six inch hole unless prior arrahgements for a lighter fluid cremation were made in which the ashes could be placed in a thimble wrapped tightly in a condom to prevnet spillage although it must be acknowledge that condoms are not 100% effective. The condom than may be hung from the mantle or tossed in the toilet for burial at sea, This reply may seem totatlly ridiculous but no more so than this post unless of course this post shares the same sarcasm

        Gotta agree with joe on this one. No, it should not be treated the same. People could go broke for services provided for miscarried events as some women can go through several miscarriages before getting pregnant to full term happens. Additionally, a fetus is not the same as a full grown baby. Totally different in my book therefore should be treated different.
