Reproductive health care, including abortion, should be safe and available to those who need it, and not restricted by certain politicians who want to ban abortions. Yet, HB 1577 is an omnibus anti-choice bill that runs afoul of the Constitution, placing multiple new restrictions on abortion access.
HB 1577 would force minors to jump through even more hoops to get abortion care. It would limit the use of telemedicine for reproductive health care services, a particularly dangerous proposal during a pandemic. This bill would also force health providers to lie to their patients and provide dangerous, false and misleading information about abortion reversal, putting patients at risk while ignoring science and the first amendment rights of medical providers.
