Abortion provider Planned Parenthood is reportedly suing the state of Arizona for making a law requiring doctors to inform patients seeking abortions that the procedure can be reversed.
Charisma News reports the Arizona law is due to take effect on July 3. According to supporters of the law, a high dose of a hormone can reverse the effects of an drug-induced abortion procedure.
However, critics argue that the law could harm women, as the research is based on “junk science.”
"This reckless law forces doctors to lie to their patients, and it puts women's health at risk," said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
As previously reported, the abortion pill reversal procedure is gaining attention in the medical community.
“Many women are ambivalent about their abortion decision, and there is increasing evidence that many abortions are coerced. These women welcome the opportunity to reverse their initial decision, and should be given accurate information about this process,” said physicians Mary L. Davenport and Donna J. Harrison in a statement.
