S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 9655 I N A S S E M B L Y March 28, 2022 ___________ Introduced by M. of A. PAULIN -- read once and referred to the Committee on Health AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to establishing the "donor-conceived person protection act" THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "donor-con- ceived person protection act". § 2. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature acknowledges the importance of parents and donor-conceived persons knowing the medical history of individuals who have donated reproductive tissue to a reproductive tissue bank for purposes of an artificial insemination or assisted reproductive technology procedure and disseminating this histo- ry information to a recipient and donor-conceived person upon request, if any. The legislature further acknowledges knowing the medical history of a donor will provide recipients with the necessary information to make informed decisions regarding the process of artificial insemination or assisted reproductive technology procedure and for donor-conceived persons to obtain essential medical information, which may reveal any genetic or mental health disorders. The legislature finds that reproductive tissue banks, including semen banks, oocyte donation programs and embryo banks have a duty to collect and verify medical history information provided by donors on donor self- reported medical histories and during the donor screening processes and to keep detailed records of such for use by recipients and donor-con- ceived persons, if any, prior to a procedure and in the future. The legislature further finds that the protections currently afforded to reproductive tissue bank donors' medical records be waived and that donors' identify all recent medical professionals on such donor self-re- ported histories and during the donor screening processes, in order to effectuate the provisions of this act. § 3. Section 4360 of the public health law is amended by adding five new subdivisions 1-a, 11, 12, 13 and 14 to read as follows: EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
