Texas and Oklahoma trying to limit access to abortion-inducing drug

Both Texas and Oklahoma are considering limiting access to RU 486 — a pill that is used to induce early labor and end a pregnancy. #

Abby Johnson, The former Planned Parenthood director-turned-anti-choice activist, testified in Texas’s state capital yesterday in favor of legislation that would limit access to RU 486 in Texas. #

According to Life News, “Abby Johnson will address the legislation both from her professional experience as a clinic operator in Bryan, Texas, and from her personal life story, having gone through an RU 486 abortion herself.” #

Texas’ legislation would limit the pill’s use to “49 days after conception instead of 63 days, as is practiced in some Texas facilities.” #

The Oklahoma Senate also passed legislation yesterday that would limit access to RU 486. The bill would reduce the amount of time a woman has available to her to take RU 486 to end her pregnancy. #

According to Tulsa World, Oklahoma’s House Bill 1970 would require physicians to “administer abortion-inducing drugs, including RU 486, in accordance with U.S. Food Drug Administration guidelines.” It would reduce the amount of time an abortion-inducing drug could be administered from 8.4 weeks to seven weeks. #

Kate Neary-Pounds, the director of Reproductive Services of Tulsa, says that reducing the time available to the woman would result in the need for more medication, which could cause more side effects. #
