“Valuable consideration” would not include any reasonable payments associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue.
The bill would require all facilities that perform abortions to dispose of the remains in a manner limited to burial, cremation, or approved hospital-type incineration.

Failure to comply with the Fetal Dignity Protection Act would be considered a violation of the professional standards of any person holding a professional license.
