The Tennessee Senate has placed the Abortion Pill Reversal Act, SB 2465. Senate Bill 2465 sponsored by Senator Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) on a calendar that they are not planning to consider this session. The bill would require abortion facilities to display signage informing women that a chemical abortion may be reversed following the first dose of a two-pill protocol and requires a physician to provide the same information during informed consent, 48 hours prior to the abortion procedure.

Last week, the state House overwhelmingly passed the legislation by a vote of 71-22-1. Before the legislation can become law, the Senate must take action.

Please contact your state Senator today and ask for SB 2465 to be considered in the state Senate before adjourning for the year.

Women have undergone the progesterone reversal process, carried their babies to term and delivered healthy babies. To date more than 900 babies and women have been saved by the Abortion Pill Reversal protocol.

Currently, there are over 800 medical professionals, including several in Tennessee, trained to administer the Abortion Pill Reversal protocol. Visit Abortion Pill Rescue for more information about the process.
