Federal - HR 552

The "Second Chance at Life Act of 2021"

Introduced

January 28, 2021

Description

H.R. 554, the "Second Chance at Life Act of 2021," has been introduced by Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO).

This bill would require doctors to inform women seeking a chemical abortion that the abortion can potentially be stopped and reversed in order to save the baby, if she changes her mind after taking the first dose. A woman must be informed 24 hours in advance that reversing the abortion is possible after administering the first of a two-dose process.

This bill also requires that this information be publicly posted at the clinic where these abortions are provided.

National Right to Life strongly supports this life-saving legislation.
