Abortion foes seeking ban on remote pill program

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- State medical regulators have created a group to study a program that lets doctors prescribe an abortion-inducing drug.

The drug, RU-486, can be given after meeting with patients, even if that meeting is only through the Internet.

Abortion opponents say the system is dangerous to patients.

Planned parenthood officials say the program is safe and meets the needs of women in rural areas.
