The Idaho House voted 55-11 to approve SB 1243 yesterday, giving final approval to legislation which would help women find out that there is a way to reverse a chemical abortion – if she moves quickly.
The legislation, proposed by Right to Life, would add a provision to Idaho’s Informed Consent law. It directs the Department of Health & Welfare to include information about the Abortion Pill Reversal protocol in materials given to women considering an abortion. There has been some success in protecting preborn children from the effects of RU-486 if a woman has not yet taken the second drug.
In fact, a young mother testified before both the Senate and House committees about her own experience with APR. After taking the first pill, she immediately experienced regret and searched for help. She was given hormonal treatments and was able to save the life of her baby boy. This extraordinary young mother brought her beautiful son – Zachariah – to the hearings. He is now a healthy, happy five-years-old blessing to the world.
But, despite the living evidence of the APR protocol being effective, Abortion Industry lobbyists from Planned Parenthood and the ACLU decried the legislation as “fake science”. And all of their Democrat clients in the Statehouse obediently voted against SB1243.
SB 1243, sponsored by Sen. Lori Den Hartog and Rep. Gayann DeMordaunt, is now headed to the Governor for final approval. We need to being praying that Governor Otter signs the legislation into law. Women must have access to this information.
