    House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.

    Amends proposed GS 130A-421 to require consent from the mother before disposing of fetal remains when unintended fetal death results from accidental injury, stillbirth, or miscarriage (previously, did not refer to unintended death). Requires the mother's consent to be obtained by the attending physician or individual in charge of the institution where the fetal remains were expelled or extracted (previously limited to the attending physician). Adds a new limitation to restrict disposal to means of burial, cremation, or incineration in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Makes conforming changes. Now provides that if neither the mother or father is able to give consent within seven days from the time the remains were expelled or extracted, the remains must be disposed of by burial, cremation, or incineration in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Restricts disposal of fetal remains that have been developed beyond completion of the second trimester of gestation to burial or cremation. Eliminates the explicit option for either the mother or father to request the release of fetal remains for burial or cremation, and the subsequent authorization for the disposal by the attending physician if no such request is made within seven days.
