North Dakota House considers ‘abortion reversal’ bill

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s House will consider legislation that would require abortion providers to inform women undergoing drug-induced abortions that it’s possible they could still have a live birth if they change their mind.

Abortion-rights groups claim there is no medically accepted evidence that a drug-induced abortion can be interrupted.

It’s the first time in six years the Republican-led Legislature has had the appetite to undertake such legislation, after several anti-abortion laws were struck down in the courts and two its most vocal anti-abortion lawmakers were ousted by voters.

GOP Rep. Daniel Johnston says he is sponsoring the bill this session so that “women having second thoughts” are ensured they have “options.”

Abortion-rights groups say it amounts to “misinformation.”
