H.B. 1890

Mandatory Burial/Cremation of Fetal Remains (Rep. Ryan)

SUMMARY: This medically unnecessary bill places new mandates on health care providers that would require all health care facilities in which a miscarriage or abortion take place to have the embryonic or fetal tissue either buried or cremated, regardless of the gestational age, essentially imposing a funeral ritual of sorts on families. This restriction is intended to shame a person who has already made the personal decision to have an abortion.
