SB 175 banned telemedicine. It required the administration of the initial dose of RU-486 (mifepristone) or any other abortion-inducing drug to occur in the same room and in the physical presence of the physician who prescribed, dispensed, or otherwise provided the drug or chemical to the patient.

The bill also required that the physician or a person acting on the physician’s behalf make all reasonable efforts to ensure that the patient returns after the administration or use of any abortion-inducing drug for a follow-up visit.

STATUS

Companion bill to HB 400, which became law in August 2013.
