Mifepristone in Australia and TRAP in Indiana

Australia moved one step closer to approving mifepristone today, as the Australian parliament, after a long and emotional debate, voted to remove the Australian Health Minister’s power to veto the drug. Mifepristone may be available for use in Australia in the coming months.

The Indiana based Lafayette Journal and Courier denounced the state’s proposed TRAP legislation, which they call a “back-door ban on abortions.” Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) bills are one of the most common ways that states try to decrease access to abortion. These bills single out clinics and force them to submit to politically motivated, unnecessary regulations that sometimes can force a clinic to close.
