On the Wednesday edition of Today, NBC Washington correspondent Hallie Jackson mourned Louisiana’s decision to pass a bill that will reclassify two drugs commonly used in abortion, mifepristone and misoprostol as controlled and dangerous substances.

Co-host Craig Melvin introduced Jackson by reporting, “In a first of its kind move, lawmakers in Louisiana have now passed a bill to reclassify two commonly used drugs in abortions as ‘controlled dangerous substances.’”

Jackson replied that, “If the governor does ultimately sign this bill into law, and he’s expected to, Louisiana would be the first state in the country to criminalize these abortion drugs in this way, but critics fear it may not be the last.”
