Full Bill Text

HB 3423 would require a health-care practitioner to provide the same degree of care to a child born alive during an abortion or attempted abortion as they would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.

Requirements for Health-Care Practitioners

If an attempted abortion results in a child born alive, any health-care practitioner present at the time would be required to do all of the following:

  • Exercise the same degree of care to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health-care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age; and
  • If the child was not born alive in a hospital, ensure that the child born alive is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital.

A person who violates this provision would be guilty of a Class C felony.

Reporting Requirements

A health-care practitioner who has knowledge of a failure to comply with these requirements would be required to report the failure to a state law enforcement agency.
