Minnesota Telemedicine Ban (SF 2957)
This law was last updated on Mar 18, 2015
SF 2957 would have required the physical presence of a physician and follow-up visits when drugs or chemicals are used to induce an abortion. Physicians would have been required to give the pregnant woman written instructions to return 12 to 18 days after the visit so they may assess the woman’s medical condition.
The bill states that the woman’s medical record must include a brief description of the reasonable efforts made by the physician to encourage the woman to attend the follow-up appointment.
Any person who knowingly or recklessly violated this section would have been guilty of a felony.
Died in committee. Companion bill to HF 3361.
