Emergency Contraceptive Education Act (SB 370)
This law was last updated on Feb 3, 2014
SB 370 would have required the Michigan Department of Health to develop information on emergency contraceptives and disseminate that information to the public. The bill also would have required the department of health to consult with medical and public health organizations to develop information on emergency contraceptives and disseminate it to health-care professionals, facilities, and agencies.
The bill includes legislative findings that emergency contraception does not cause abortion, that the use of emergency contraception could cut the number of unintended pregnancies by half, thus reducing the need for abortion, and that a public awareness campaign will help remove barriers to emergency contraception.
Companion bill to HB 4722.
