HB 1531 would have prohibited a physician from performing an abortion on a woman for the purpose of providing fetal organs or fetal tissue for medical transplantation to herself or another person. Any person who violated the provisions of the bill is guilty of a class C felony.

Current state law already bans abortion if thought for the purpose of gathering tissue or organs. This law duplicates that ban and adds criminal penalties.

STATUS

Referred to Health Care Policy Committee.
