Ohio Bill Expanding Restrictions on the Care of Aborted Fetuses (SB 203)
This law was last updated on May 1, 2017
SB 203 would expand the prohibitions regarding the transfer of the “product of human conception” which is aborted. The bill would ban the exchange of money for the storage, preservation, transfer and any other services related to the “product of human conception.”
SB 203 also states that no person “recklessly shall experiment upon, use in medical treatment or sell the product of human conception which is aborted.”
“Medical treatment” is defined as utilization as a substance or component in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease in or injury to humans or animals.
Anyone violating the measure would be guilty of abortion trafficking, punishable by a prison term of up to 10 years and a fine equal to at least twice the amount of the profit received.
