Utah House Passes Measure Requiring Abortionists to Be Present When Prescribing AbortifacientsBy Dave Andrusko
NRL News Today - February 8, 2017
On Tuesday the Utah House of Representatives voted to approve HB 154, a bill which (as the Associated Press explained) “mainly promotes the use of telemedicine, a growing practice in which doctors use images and webcams to consult with patients, typically far away or in rural areas, and treat them.”
So why would pro-abortion Democrats howl? Because the measure also explicitly forbids abortionists from using telemedicine–meaning the abortionist is not in the presence of the pregnant woman–to prescribe chemically-induced abortions.
Typically in “webcam abortions, ” the abortionist is located back at a hub office and teleconferences with the woman at a smaller satellite office. He reviews her case, and asks a couple of questions. He then clicks a mouse, remotely unlocking a drawer at her location which contains the abortifacients.
