This law was last updated on Jun 28, 2016
HF 2329 would prohibit a person from knowingly acquiring, providing, receiving, or using a fetal body part, regardless of whether the acquisition, provision, receipt, or use is for valuable consideration.
This would not apply to:
- diagnostic or remedial tests, procedures, or observations which have the sole purpose of determining the life or health of the fetus in order to provide that information to the pregnant woman or to preserve the life or health of the fetus or pregnant woman;
- the actions of a person taken in the furtherance of the final disposition of a fetal body part; or
- for pathological study.
A person who violates this provision would be guilty of a class “C” felony.
