HB 2329 would amend current Missouri law relating to aborted tissue report requirements.

Current law requires only a representative sample of aborted tissue to be submitted to a pathologist who is required to file a copy of the tissue report with the state department of health.

HB 2329 would require all tissue removed at the abortion to be sent to a pathologist.

The tissue report would need to include:

  • The pathologist’s estimation of the gestational age of the fetal remains;
  • Whether all tissue and products of conception were received that would be common for a specimen of such estimated gestational age;
  • If the pathologist finds that all tissue and products of conception were not received, what portion was not received; and
  • The date the tissue and products of conception were remitted to be disposed and the location of the disposal.

Physician Reporting Requirements

HB 2329 would also require an individual abortion report to be submitted by the attending physician. The report would need to include:

  • The physician’s estimation of the gestational age of the fetal remains;
  • Whether all tissue and products of conception were received that would be common for a specimen of such estimated gestational age;
  • If the physician finds that all tissue and products of conception were not removed, what portion was not removed.

STATUS

Similar to HB 2071.
