House passes bill that seeks to change "abortion-inducing" drug process - The Missouri Times
The bill is one of the only pieces of legislation from Republicans vocally opposed to abortion that deals with access to the service. While most proponents have argued that the bill is meant to ensure the health and well-being of the woman and protect them from abusive or irresponsible medical professionals, opponents say the new requirements could prevent women, especially in rural areas, from receiving treatment.
Rep. Jeanne Kirkton, D-Webster Groves
“A requirement to take the second drug in the presence of the doctor would have the woman traveling back home at a time when cramping, bleeding, chills, GI symptoms and delivery of the fetus my occur. That is unwise and unsafe,” Kirkton said.
“The American College of Gynecologists recommend taking the second dose in the privacy of your home,” Kirkton said.
The bill passed its third reading by a veto-proof majority of 115-39.
