Legislative Update 

April 29, 2016 -- CALL TO ACTION: 

Our Legislators need to know that you support them as they work to pass pro-life legislation.

Call your Senator, thank him/her for what they have done so far, and, let them know that we need HCS HB's 2069 & 2371passed to give the full force of law to ensure that baby body parts are not being sold in Missouri or around the United States.

What Will HCS HB's 2069 & 2371 Accomplish?
  • Requires the accounting of and reporting of all body parts of the aborted baby.
  • Prohibits donation of baby organs or tissue after an abortion.
  • Imposes penalties for sale of baby body parts of the aborted baby.
  • Requires all remains of an aborted baby to be submitted to a board certified pathologist.
  • Requires a detailed tissue report on every abortion.
  • Requires disclosure of the entity conducting the exam of the remains of an aborted baby.
  • Requires tracking of the baby's remains from abortion facility to pathology lab to disposition location.
  • Mandates that the Department of Health receive report copies which are available to the public.
  • Noncompliance requires an unscheduled inspection of the abortion facility.
  • Un-remedied deficiencies result in a suspended license (1 year minimum).
  • The Health Department will make annual report of deficiencies to the General Assembly.
  • Contains whistleblower protections for people who work in the abortion clinic, the pathology lab, or the research facility.

Take Note: Anything that impedes the financial incentive for the abortion industry decreases the number of abortions. Please call your State Senator and ask him/her to pass HCS HBs 2069 & 2371.

Session ends on Friday, May 13 at 6:00 p.m. So time is critical!
