Five pieces of legislation that would provide stricter laws on abortion were put forth this week before a House committee at the state capital. Four of those bills are sponsored by State Representative Diane Franklin of Camdenton. The proposed legislation would ban fetal donations, provide whistle blower protection for employees who report the selling of aborted fetal remains, change the definition of “remains of a human fetus” and require tissue reports. Several testified for and against the bills including medical professionals. However, the committee did not vote on the legislation when it met on Tuesday (23).
