House Bill 115: Reporting Prescriptions that Terminate Pregnancy

March/April 2018

Rep. Robby Mills: This bill would require a physician to report a prescription for mifeprex, misoprostol, or any other drug or combination of drugs that are intended to end a pregnancy. The FDA requires this combination of pills (often called RU 486) to be given to a woman in a doctor’s office, clinic or hospital setting. However, in October of 2017 the ACLU sued the FDA wanted regulations relaxed in order to have pharmacists in local communities dispense with a doctor’s prescription. HB 115 would require reporting of these potent drugs. This bill is particularly important given the fact that Planned Parenthood wants to expand this kind of abortion in Kentucky.
