Danny Carroll of The FAMiLY Leader provided testimony in support of House Study Bill 672 on Thursday. It’s a bill to provide information to pregnant women regarding medication abortion and the possibility it could be reversed.

“This bill itself seems very reasonable,” he said. “It provides some meaningful information about the risks of taking medicine to terminate a pregnancy, what options there might be for reversal and how do you access those options.”

Carroll said lost in the debate are the women who are hit hard by reality.

“She’s already been through a lot,” he said. “From a pregnancy, she really hadn’t intended or planned for, then to have to come to the conclusion that an abortion is the only answer and then to show up and begin that process, take the medication and then reality hits. Finally, it’s become real. It’s no longer a political discussion or moral dilemma. There’s nobody else there, just her and reality. It seems reasonable to me that she at least know it can be reversed. It’s not too late.”
