Oppose: These bills would reduce the timeframe for medication abortion from 70 days to 49 days, essentially banning medication abortion in Texas. They would also prevent the mailing of medication abortion drugs and add additional, medically unnecessary reporting requirements for abortion providers, including an impossible requirement that providers report on pregnancy complications that occur during subsequent pregnancies.

Update July 19, 2021: HB 6 has been referred to committee and SB 4 is out of committee moving to the floor.
