Take Action

Dear
Find My Legislator

I'm writing to urge you to support the Telemedicine Abortion Ban. 

This bill would prohibit the use of telemedicine for the purpose of providing abortion-inducing drugs. According to a Reuters article, “since the telemedicine program began in Iowa in 2008, medication abortions increased to 64 percent of all pregnancy terminations, the highest U.S. rate.”

This is a dangerous practice of providing a risky medication to a woman without the physician actually being present. This legislation has already been enacted in nineteen other states, proving that it has widespread support.

I urge you to support the passage of this legislation to ensure that abortion-inducing drugs can only be prescribed after an in-person examination by the prescribing physician.
