Donda West Pushes Bills from Beyond

5/27/2008 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donda West's death after plastic surgery is spurring lawmakers to make big changes -- or at least try -- to protect people who are going under the knife, including one bill named' after Kanye's mama.

Yolanda Anderson, niece of Donda and cousin of Kanye, along with Calif. Assemblywoman Wilmer Amina Carter, introduced a bill into the Cali legislature that would require patients to receive a physical exam before plastic surgery. Anderson tells the L.A. Times that Dr. Jan Adams didn't give her aunt a physical exam, though a rep for Adams insists he "thoroughly questioned" West before the procedure.

Other bills inspired by Donda's death are currently in state legislatures in Florida and Canada, amongst others.
