HB 1041 would prohibit abortion after the point of conception.

This bill would allow exceptions to prevent the death of the mother, if the physician makes a reasonable effort to save the life of the mother and the fetus; and if a licensed physician provides medical treatment and accidentally or unintentionally injured or caused the death of the fetus.

The bill would exclude pregnant mothers from criminal penalty. It would also exclude the sale and use of contraception prior to conception, if the contraceptive measure, device, drug, or chemical is used in accordance to manufacturer instruction.

HB 1041 would ban abortion with no exception for rape or incest. In addition, it would eliminate certain medical choices for women, including some cancer treatments and in vitro fertilization.

Violation of this bill would result in a class 3 felony.

STATUS

Similar to HB 1033 and HB 1133, which failed to pass in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
