Human Embryo and Fetal Research

Full Bill Text

HB 287 would prohibit the following:

  • Knowingly creating an in vitro human embryo by means other than fertilization of a human egg by a human sperm;
  • Creating an in vitro hybrid human-animal embryo;
  • Transferring an in vitro human embryo into a womb of a nonhuman;
  • Transferring an in vitro nonhuman embryo into the womb of a human; and
  • Transporting or receiving for any purpose a human-animal hybrid or any product derived from such hybrid.

The creation of an in vitro human embryo would be solely for the purpose of initiating a human pregnancy by means of transfer to the uterus of a human female.

The bill also states that in disputes between any parties regarding the in vitro human embryo, the judicial standard for resolving such disputes would be the best interest of the in vitro human embryo.


Similar to HB 481, which failed in the 2013 legislative session.
