This bill requires physicians to exercise reasonable care to preserve the life of a fetus after an unsuccessful abortion and establishes criminal penalties for physicians or other healthcare provider that performs the actual procedure.

On March 12, 2020, the Judiciary Committee offered two amendments including adding a section that states this bill will not make an abortion legal, that was otherwise illegal.
