ALERT: NC Senate Committee Acts to Ban the Sale of Baby Body Parts!

This afternoon, the N.C. Senate Rules Committee approved a bill that will ban the sale of body parts or other remains of aborted unborn children in North Carolina. This action follows the release of a series of undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood executives and other staff callously picking through organs and other tissue from aborted babies and haggling over the price, as if they were used car parts.

The bill, adopted as a committee substitute for House Bill 297, states, “No person shall sell the remains of an unborn child resulting from an abortion or a miscarriage, or any aborted or miscarried material,” and it creates a Class I felony offense for a violation of the law. The bill does provide that a mother may “donate the remains of her unborn child after a spontaneous abortion or miscarriage to a research facility for research…” with informed written consent.

The full Senate could vote on this bill as early as tomorrow morning, so please contact your State Senator and urge him or her to support House Bill 297, which will ban the sale of baby body parts in our state!
