S.B. 67 was passed out of committee today and will go to the full House for a vote.
Senator Bramble and Representative Lisonbee made changes to this bill yet again today, and despite their claims that they are “giving women more choices”, this bill STILL clearly takes away options for women and families experiencing miscarriage and abortion. The bill only allows for burial or cremation, which is already possible, and prohibits fetal tissue from being disposed of with other medical material.
The TRUE purpose of this legislation is clear: to impose more government regulations on deeply personal medical experiences in an effort to undermine reproductive health care and safe and legal abortion. Here’s our updated fact sheet on the bill.
