U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy introduced legislation last week to protect the sanctity of human life by prohibiting chemical abortions from being performed without the supervision of a healthcare provider.

U.S. Sens. John Kennedy (R-LA), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Steve Daines (R-MT), James Lankford (R-OK), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Tim Scott (R-SC), and Kevin Cramer (S-ND) joined Cassidy as original cosponsors of the bill.

The Teleabortion Prevention Act would make it a federal offense for healthcare providers to perform a chemical abortion without first physically examining the patient, being present during the procedure, and scheduling a follow-up visit for the patient. This legislation builds on the efforts of several states to curtail teleabortion.
