S.C. Senator Cash Bill Would Outlaw Use of Fetal Tissue

South Carolina Sen. Richard Cash, R-Anderson, a member of the Senate Medical Affairs Committee, today introduced legislation, Senate Bill 648, to put an end to the sale, purchase, donation, or acceptance of the fetal remains of aborted babies for experiment or research. 

The bill states that no person shall conduct research upon or experiment upon the remains of a child or an unborn child resulting from an abortion, not including autopsies performed according to law. Further, no person shall perform or offer to perform an abortion for which all or part of the justification is the research, experimentation or transplantation for the unborn child or any part of the unborn child. One found guilty is convicted of a felony and must be imprisoned not more than five years. 

The impact of S.648 echoes the findings in the Select Investigative Panel of the U.S. House Energy & Commerce Committee Report of 2016, which was formed to investigate the Planned Parenthood scandal involving the sale of fetal tissue from aborted babies. The 400-page report noted a number of universities involved in purchasing fetal tissue from aborted babies, including the University of South Carolina.
