This week, committees in the House and Senate heard testimony on a bill designed to ensure the respectful disposition of fetal remains after an abortion. HB 2012, sponsored by Rep. Hannah Kelly (R - Mountain Grove), and SB 737, sponsored by Sen. Andrew Koenig (R - Manchester), would prohibit the donation of fetal remains after an abortion and prohibit the hoarding of fetal remains.
HB 2012 was passed out of committee while no immediate action was taken on SB 737. Once the bills are voted out of committee, they will head to the rules committee before being debated by the full House and Senate. The MCC testified in favor of both bills.
