Colorado state Sen. Tim Neville, who last year introduced a bill requiring a doctor to perform a vaginal ultrasound on a woman seeking an abortion, is a leading GOP contender so far to take on pro-choice Sen. Michael Bennet next year.
While many legislatures are moving full steam ahead to pass abortion restrictions, Kentucky is knocking down anti-choice bills.
A state law requiring women to receive an ultrasound at least a day before having an abortion has already caused a Northern Virginia health clinic to reduce its non-abortion services in the month since it took effect, according to a clinic official.
Women in Virginia who want to terminate a pregnancy may find themselves with new roadblocks as the state tries to trick them into visiting crisis pregnancy centers first.
The judge who ruled Oklahoma’s forced ultrasound bill was unconstitutional has refused the state’s attempt to appeal.
