Miss. Lawmakers OK Restrictions on Abortion Drugs


Posted on April 3rd, in Issues, News, News & Opinion, State Abortion Policy.

A bill headed to Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says a physician would have to be present when a woman takes abortion-inducing drugs.

Senate Bill 2795 also says the woman would have to return to the doctor’s office two weeks later for a follow-up examination.

The Senate passed the final version of the bill 46-6 on Wednesday. The House passed it 84-30 Friday.

If the governor signs the bill, it would become law July 1.
