What It Is

If the abortion occurs in an institution, the head of the institution must file this report. If the abortion was performed outside an institution, the attending physician must file the report. The report must provide all information cited in KRS 311.782.

Institution heads and physicians must report each prescription issued for RU-486, cytotec, pitocin, mifeprex, misoprostol and other drugs or combinations of drugs for which the primary indication is induction of abortion as defined in KRS 311.720. This report must occur within 15 days after the end of the month in which the prescription was issued.
