Abortion Pill Reversal Act Passes House Health Subcommittee

Tennessee Right to Life Proposes Bill to Allow Abortion Pill Reversal Information

Right to Life proposal seeks to provide life-saving information to women seeking abortion

From the moment a woman takes the abortion pill, she has about 72 hours to change her mind and save her baby, because of the proven Abortion Pill Reversal protocol.

More than one-third of abortions in the U.S. occur through the "abortion pill." As these numbers continue to rise, we know that no woman should ever feel forced to finish an abortion she regrets. Tennessee Right to Life seeks to ensure that women who are prescribed the abortion pill are given information about the abortion pill reversal protocol.

House Bill 2568 sponsored by Rep. Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby) and Senate Bill 2465 sponsored by Sen. Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) would require abortion facilities to display a sign informing women that a chemical abortion may be reversed following the first dose of a two-dose protocol and requires a physician provide the same information during informed consent, 48 hours prior to the abortion.

House Bill 2568 sponsored by Rep. Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby) passed in the House Public Health Subcommittee today and will be heard next in the full House Health Committee.

Please thank members of the House Public Health Subcommittee for supporting the bill: Rep. Jerry Sexton, Chair (R-Bean Station), Rep. Matthew Hill (R-Jonesborough), Rep. Bryan Terry, M.D. (R-Murfreesboro), Rep. Micah Van Huss (R-Gray) and Rep. Ryan Williams (R-Cookeville).
