Federal - HR 552

The "Second Chance at Life Act of 2021"


January 28, 2021


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.
