After his success in passing a 2011 law requiring women to undergo ultrasounds before an abortion, Republican Sen. Dan Patrick of Houston is once again pushing legislation to regulate the procedure — this time spelling out how doctors should dispense medications used to induce abortions.

 

Patrick says his proposal, Senate Bill 97, simply requires doctors to follow federal guidelines for use of the drugs, thus ensuring women’s safety. But critics say the bill is counter to best medical practices and intrudes on the doctor-patient relationship. The bill was the subject of a public hearing at the Capitol last week and is awaiting a vote in the Health and Human Services Comittee.
