Vote to ban telemedicine abortion passed
Five years ago, Iowa became the only state in the nation to have telemedicine abortion. That title may soon be removed.
Iowa Board of Medicine voted Aug. 30 to set rules for telemedicine health care, including a provision that all patients would have to meet with a doctor before being supplied a drug to abort a pregnancy (see definition of telemedicine abortion, right).
Pat Pokorny, a member of Creston Right to Life, agrees with the decision.
