Some women who lose their babies during their pregnancy never know what happens to the remains and in many cases, are never told they have a say in the matter. The State Senate is asking the House to join it in approving a new law saying those women can say what they want and the hospital has to follow those instructions. Rolla Senator Sarah Steelman says the bill alleviates a long-standing problem. The bill says the medical facility must notify the mother within 24 hours she has a choice, if she wants to use it. If she makes no choice, the facility can dispose of the remains as it sees fit.
