Abortion reversal bill moves forward in the Kansas House

News

The Kansas House is moving forward with a bill that will force health care providers to let women know that some chemically-induced abortions can be reversed.

After about two hours of debate, the House passed the bill on a voice vote Monday.

The proposed bill would require doctors to tell women that a chemical abortion can be stopped if a doctor intervenes before a second dose of medication is taken.

Opponents of the bill say this takes away the doctor’s choice, while supporters say it gives women a chance to re-think their decision.

Under the rule, an abortion provider would be charged with a crime and fined $10,000 for not displaying a sign telling patients about the possible reversal. 

If the bill passes a final vote on Tuesday, it will head to the Senate.
