Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

House Bill 3 bans the distribution of abortion pills by mail, raises standards for minors seeking an abortion, and mandates the creation of a new and expansive certification and monitoring system to track details of all abortions administered in the state and the physicians who provide them. Sen. Stephen Meredith said, “If a mother can kill her own child… what prevents us from killing ourselves and one another?”
