On Monday, Congressman Mike Conaway (R-Tx.) introduced the Second Chance at Life Act, a bill requiring 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.

“It is crucial that women making the decision to end their child’s life have access to all the information they need to make a fully informed decision,” Rep. Conaway said. “A chemical abortion can be fully reversed, with no harm to the child, should the mother change her mind halfway through the process. Many women have reported having second thoughts after taking the first dose, but aren’t aware that the abortion can be stopped and reversed. Over 500 babies have been saved by the Abortion Pill Reversal protocol to date, but all too often women don’t know that they have that choice.

Conaway added, “Several states already require women seeking a chemical abortion to be notified of their options, but it’s critical that women across the country have access to this life-saving information. I am proud to introduce this legislation today, and proud to stand for life always.”

National Right to Life has also announced its support for the Second Chance at Life Act.
