HB1667 is a bill currently under consideration. If this
bill is passed, all fetal deaths, or miscarriages, must be reported to the state. If a mother doesn't report a miscarriage,
she could go to jail. Delgate John Cosgrove proposed this bill to the House of Burgesses. The House of Burgesses
is in the legislative branch of the Virginia government. Cosgrove is a Republican and has been in the House for 3 years.
He represents part of the city of Cheasapeake, Virginia. In general, people with a liberal standpint wouldn't want this
bill to be passed because it would invade the privacy of the mother. People with a conservative standpoint would like
the law because it could prevent miscarriages.
