Abortion-inducing drugs now state-regulated
Published: April 28,2013
JACKSON — Gov. Phil Bryant has signed a bill that regulates the prescription and use of abortion-inducing drugs.
He signed Senate Bill 2795, and it becomes law July 1.
It says a physician must be present when a woman takes drugs prescribed to end a pregnancy in its early weeks. It also says the woman must have a follow-up physical examination two weeks later.
The current practice at Mississippi’s only abortion clinic is for each woman to have a sonogram to determine how far along the pregnancy is. Those who take the prescription are given some of the medication at the clinic and the rest to take at home on subsequent days. The clinic advises women to have a follow-up exam three weeks later.
