HB 1336 requires a physician to inform a pregnant person seeking an abortion that it may be possible to reverse the effects of an abortion-inducing drug.

The bill amends informed consent requirements to require physicians to inform patients that it may be possible to reverse the effects of an abortion-inducing drug if the patient changes their mind, but that time is of the essence, and information and assistance with reversing the effects of an abortion-inducing drug are available in the printed materials provided.

The bill requires the printed materials to include information directing the patient where to obtain further information and assistance in locating a medical professional who can aid in the reversal of abortion-inducing drugs, such as mifepristone and misoprostol.
