ANNAPOLIS, Md. - A bill that prevents the use of sperm or eggs for assisted reproduction without prior permission after the donor dies has cleared the General Assembly.
The bill, which would require a donor to give consent to use his or her genetic material after death, was approved Thursday in a 43-2 vote.
The measure raised questions in the House of Delegates about whether children conceived after a donor's death would be entitled to inheritance benefits.
The House amended the measure to apply inheritance rights to children conceived under the new regulation.
