North Dakota pro-lifers depending on Gov. Burgum to sign Abortion Pill Reversal Bill

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum

Should North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum do the right thing, there will be six states that require abortionists to inform women they may be able to save their unborn babies from a chemical abortion.

HB 1336, which passed the House 73-16 in late January and the Senate 34-11 last Friday, is the Abortion Pill Reversal Informed Consent bill. HB1336 would require abortion facilities to provide information to any woman seeking an abortion about how she can potentially save her baby if she changes her mind after taking the first medication, but not the second.

“The constituents of North Dakota are depending on Gov. Burgum to sign HB 1336 into law,” said Medora Nagle, executive director of North Dakota Right to Life. Nagle told NRL News Today, “I believe Governor Burgum will sign this into law so that every woman seeking an abortion is given all of the information before making this life-changing decision.”

Nagle encouraged North Dakota pro-lifers to contact the Governor and urge him to sign this bill! The number is (701) 328-2200.

Gov. Bergum had three days to sign the measure after he officially received it.

Five states already have laws that require women to be told about APR– “Abortion Pill Reversal.” Medication Abortions [“RU-486”] involve two drugs: Mifeprex, taken at the abortion clinic, and then 48-72 hours later, misoprostol, a prostaglandin. The science behind the Abortion Pill Reversal technique is solid and begins with a woman not taking the second of the two drugs and then being given large dosages of progesterone in order to counteract the effect of the first pill.
