Protecting the Dignity of Unborn Children Act of 2017 (H.R. 718)
This law was last updated on Sep 26, 2018
HR 718 would make it a crime to recklessly dispose of or abandon fetal remains in a landfill or in any navigable waters of the United States.
The bill defines “fetal remains” to mean any part (except a cremated part) of a deceased human fetus following an abortion.
A person who violates this provision would be subject to a fine, up to three years in prison, or both.
Identical to H.R. 5637.
