By Rep. Robby Mills – HB 115 requires a physician to report prescriptions for misoprostol, mifeprex, or any other drugs that are intended to end a pregnancy. Currently, the FDA requires such to be given in a hospital, clinic or doctor’s office. The ACLU has filed suit to make them available at a pharmacy
Advocates: These are strong drugs that can have dangerous side effects. It is appropriate that a record be kept of who is receiving chemical abortions, their age and other vital statistics.
Opponents: This decision is between a woman and her doctor and no one else should be involved and no reporting required.
Status: Has been filed in the House but has not moved out of Committee.
