State Senator Steve Huffman (R) has introduced Senate Bill 260, the Telemedicine Abortion Ban, to prohibit the use of telemedicine for providing abortion-inducing drugs.

"What we are seeing in other states is this movement towards abortion providers essentially prescribing abortion-inducing drugs via telemedicine, which means that they're not physically seeing a patient," explains Stephanie Krider of Ohio Right to Life. "They're not physically sitting in a room with a patient while they're counseling them to take this drug that certainly is going to end the life of their child but also is very harmful potentially to women."

24 women have died from complications related to such drugs, and several thousand others have been harmed so seriously they had to be transported to a hospital emergency room.

"They say you can do this in the privacy of your home so you're not at a doctor's office; you don't have to undergo any sort of surgery," Krider relays of the abortion industry's selling point. "They even are pushing now for this sort of at home abortion movement, which really is very scary."

The pro-lifer points out that the rural women and girls, the targets of this movement, often do not have access to sufficient medical care for emergencies.

So far, 17 of Ohio's 33 senators have signed on to the bill, which Krider says is a very encouraging sign.
