Nebraska senator proposes bill to ban selling fetal tissue

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Doctors and clinics could be banned from performing abortions if they are found selling human fetal tissue under a bill proposed by a Nebraska senator.

Sen. Al Davis of Hyannis introduced a bill Friday that would require monthly reports from abortion providers about how they disposed of each aborted fetus.

The measure would require the Department of Health and Human Services to adopt rules ensuring abortion-authorized facilities dispose of remains by burial, cremation, or hospital-type incineration. If an individual or organization is found selling fetal tissue for profit, a court could ban their abortion services.

Planned Parenthood is the only abortion clinic in Lincoln and one of two in Omaha. The other is operated by Dr. Leroy Carhart in Bellevue.
