A Woman’s Right to Know Bill

nc-stampHB 62 – A Woman’s Right to Know Addition/ Ashley’s Law

Primary Sponsors: Rep. Larry Pittman (R – Cabarrus), Rep. Sarah Stevens (R – Surry), Rep. Michael Speciale (R – Craven), Rep. Beverly Boswell (R – Dare)

This bill would require a physician or another qualified health professional to inform a woman before administering Mifepristone that it is possible to discontinue a drug induced abortion by taking a progesterone. Additionally, a medical professional must provide information on how, where, and from whom she can obtain assistance stopping the drug induced abortion. It also requires physicians or another qualified health professional to provide medical proof to a woman that a fetal death has occurred.

NCMS generally opposes legislation mandating conversation or standard practices between physicians and their patients.
