La. House Panel Passes Measures Targeting Planned Parenthood, Medication Abortion
The measure now proceeds to the House floor for consideration.
The House Health and Welfare Committee also approved a bill that would ban the use of telemedicine during the provision of medication abortions and require that a physician be present while a woman takes the drugs (Shuler, Baton Rouge Advocate, 5/22).
The Senate approved the bill last month (Women's Health Policy Report, 4/24).
