Bill Caption

Relating to the disposition of an unborn child's remains after an abortion. 

Fiscal Notes

From the LBB: No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

Under current law, abortion facilities may dispose of fetal remains in the same manner they dispose of medical waste. This bill creates a disposition of remains form for a woman getting an abortion to fill out in order to fulfill her request as to what is to be done with the fetal remains. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill deals with what we view primarily as a social issue. Texas Action does not make vote recommendations for social issues. Therefore we remain neutral on this legislation.
