Bill would require doctor give morning after pill5:38 pm - 04/19/2012
A Senate panel approved the measure on Wednesday, sending it before the full chamber. An earlier version would have required women to undergo an exam by a physician before taking the pill.
The proposal also requires a follow-up visit to determine whether the contraception was effective.
Democratic Sen. Linda Coleman brought up objections during the committee, saying sections of the bill had little to do with administering the pill.
Republican sponsor Sen. Gerald Allen says the intent of the legislation is to protect life.
Parts of the legislation deal with who can bring suit if the measure is violated.Source
