Posted on: 13 Feb 2022

Bill HB 5 does the following: -Establish the Fetal and Natal Infant Mortality Review Committee to review and analyze rates, trends, causes, and other data related to fetal and infant mortality and morbidity in its geographic area -Develop findings and recommendations for interventions and policy changes to reduce fetal and infant mortality and morbidity rates. -A physician may not perform a termination of pregnancy if the physician determines the gestational age of the fetus is more than 15 weeks ACTION HB 5 has passed all of it House committees and will be voted on this week on the House Floor for 2nd read and then final passage. If it passes the House, it will then be messaged to the Senate for their vote. We expect the final House vote will come this week and the Senate vote may come this week or more likely next. We urge you to support life and send the petition below to your state and senate legislators today. It would also be helpful if you shared this with all in your network.
