Indiana HB 1128 (Rep. Bacon)

Indiana HB 1128: Informed consent requirements for abortion drugs. Requires that a pregnant woman be informed orally and in writing before a chemical abortion that the chemical abortion may be possibly arrested or reversed. Makes a technical correction.

Statement from Planned Parenthood: HB 1128 would require informed consent before a medication abortion to include a claim that the effects of the abortion pill can potentially be reversed if a pregnant person changes their mind. Claims of medication abortion reversal are not supported by the body of scientific evidence, and this approach is not recommended in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist’s clinical guidance on medication abortion.
