Mo. Senate passes abortion drug restrictions

The Missouri Senate has passed a bill that would require a doctor to be physically present when an abortion-inducing drug is first administered.


The Missouri Senate has passed a bill that would require a doctor to be physically present when an abortion-inducing drug is first administered.


The legislation was passed with a 23-7 vote on Monday. It now heads back to the House.


Senate Democrats opposed the measure but allowed it to come to a vote after reaching a compromise. An amendment was adopted to remove a provision that would've required the patient to see the same doctor a few weeks after receiving the drug.


Supporters say the measure protects the health of a mother, but opponents say it restricts abortions, particularly in rural areas where doctors are not always readily available.



Abortion drugs is HB400.
