NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Abortion rights groups have challenged newly enacted Tennessee law that would require women undergoing drug-induced abortions be informed the procedure can be reversed.
The lawsuit, filed Monday, is the second legal battle targeting a sweeping anti-abortion measure Republican Gov. Bill Lee signed off on earlier this year.
Under the new law, doctors will be required tot inform women drug-induced abortions may be halted halfway starting Oct. 1.
Medical groups say the claim isn’t backed up by science and there is little information about the reversal procedure’s safety.
Lee has promised to do “whatever it takes in court” to defend the law.
