BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota's Republican-led Legislature has approved a bill that would require abortion providers to tell women undergoing drug-induced abortions that they could still have a live birth if they change their mind.

Senators approved the so-called "abortion reversal" legislation on Friday. The House approved the measure in January.

GOP Gov. Doug Burgum has not indicated whether he would sign or veto the measure.

Supporters say doctors can give a woman the hormone progesterone to stop an abortion after she has taken the first of two medications needed to complete the abortion.
