Prohibits a woman from undergoing artificial insemination unless she consents in writing and her husband both requests the procedure and consents in writing. Requires the physician that performs the artificial insemination to file the request and consent form with the vital statistics register after the birth of a child conceived via the procedure. Requires the registrar to seal the filing and prohibits disclosure of the information unless ordered by a court or done for statistical or research purposes pursuant to Idaho’s Public Records Act (Idaho Code Ann. § 74-101 et seq.). Requires the parents of the child to notify the physician that performed the insemination procedure if that physician does not deliver their child. Immunizes physicians that do not receive such notification from liability that would arise because of their noncompliance with the reporting requirements.
