Bill summary

Adds new subsection (d) to GS 130A-114 to provide that either parent of a stillborn child may apply for a certificate of birth resulting in stillbirth, which must be based upon information available from the fetal death report. Provides that the certificate may not include any reference to the name of the stillborn child if the fetal death report does not include a name and the parent does not elect to provide a name. Requires that the certificate clearly indicate that it is not proof of a live birth. Provides that no certificate may issue for a fetal death that occurred prior to July 1, 2002 unless the application is accompanied by a certified copy of the fetal death report. Directs the Department of Health and Human Services to use available funds to implement this act.
