HB 1210 would exempt a health-care professional from penalties for violation of Texas’s informed consent law or medication abortion restriction law as those laws apply to a specific patient if in the professional’s good faith professional judgment, compliance with those laws in that patient’s case would be inconsistent with accepted, evidence-based medical practices and ethical standards.
