Bobo's World

Virgina House Bill 1677:

When a fetal death occurs without medical attendance, it shall be the woman's responsibility to report the death to the law-enforcement agency in the jurisdiction of which the delivery occurs within 12 hours after the delivery. A violation of this section shall be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor.

fetal death=any miscarriage, no matter how long after conception.

Not law... yet. Punishment? $2500 fine and up to 1 year in prison.
