An Act To Amend Title 14 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Providing Medication Abortion Prescription Drugs And Emergency Contraception.


Like Senate Bill No. 301, this Act, Senate Substitute No. 1 for Senate Bill No. 301 requires public universities in this state to provide access to medication for the termination of pregnancy and emergency contraception. The medication and contraception must be provided on-site, but consultation to provide them may be performed by a provider at the student health center or by a provider who is associated with a university-contracted external agency. This Act takes effect on July 1, 2025. Senate Substitute No. 1 for Senate Bill No. 301 differs from SB 301 as follows: - Defines the term "student." - Provides an exception for a university that does not have a student health center, including requirements that the university provide information and referral services to students and ensure that the university's health services website provides specified information relating to reproductive services. - Adds a requirement that universities maintain confidentiality of information a student provides relating to a request for a referral. - Removes references to private institutions of postsecondary education.
