  • Requires these materials include the following statements (Sec. 2):

    • “Research indicates that Mifepristone alone is not always effective in ending a pregnancy. You may still have a viable pregnancy after taking Mifepristone. If you change your mind and want to continue your pregnancy after taking Mifepristone, it may not be too late”; and

    • Materials including contact information, that will assist the person on whom an abortion is performed in finding a medical professional who can help them continue their pregnancy after taking Mifepristone.
