Idaho Senate Passes Abortion Ultrasound Mandate
Idaho senators approved a measure requiring all women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion. Monday’s 23-12 vote sends the bill to the House.
Idaho’s measure, similar to Texas and Virginia laws, requires a doctor performing an abortion or prescribing medication to terminate a pregnancy to conduct a fetal ultrasound. The woman would have the option of viewing the image and listening to a heartbeat.
