View Amendment Current Amendment: 12 to Bill 3548 Rep. BAMBERG proposes the following Amendment No. 12 to H. 3548 (COUNCIL\VR\3548C008.NBD.VR17):

Reference is to Printer's Date 3/22/17-H.

Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 1, Section 44-41-610, beginning on page 3548-1, by striking subsection (A) in its entirety and inserting:

/      (A)      Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a physician who knowingly performs or attempts to perform a dismemberment abortion and thereby kills an unborn child unless necessary to prevent serious health risk to the unborn child's mother is guilty of a felony and upon conviction must be fined ten thousand dollars or imprisoned for two years or both. There is a rebuttable presumption that a physician acts in the best interest of the mother and may only be charged if a preponderance evidence exists to the contrary. 'Serious health risk to the unborn child's mother' means that in reasonable medical judgment she has a condition that so complicates her medical condition that it necessitates the abortion of her pregnancy to avert her death or to avert serious risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function, not including psychological or emotional conditions. No such condition may be determined to exist if it is based on a claim or diagnosis that the woman will engage in conduct which she intends to result in her death or in substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function.            /
