A bill that looked like a sure thing once it passed the Senate may now not even get a hearing in the House.
Swindell’s ultrasound theater performance got a standing ovation — from those who support the bill.
Well that’s awkward. Apparently lawmakers can legislate ultrasounds, but can’t watch one.
Oh, Chuck Winder, you need to stop trying to talk about medical procedures…
The sponsor of the state’s mandatory ultrasound bill appears worried women will cry “rape” when seeking abortions.
Not content to let Ohio be the only state where a fetus gets to “testify,” Idaho is also undergoing prenatal theatrics in the legislature.
The senate voted for the flawed, forced ultrasound bill, 23 to 12.
The Idaho Senate may vote as early as Monday, May 19th on a forced ultrasound bill despite the fact that its original author admitted he had no idea exactly what sort of ultrasound he was mandating, nor how women would pay for them. Opposition is building against it.
Despite a lack of resolving the issue of offering free ultrasounds that don’t comply with the law, an Idaho senate committee is sending the bill for a full vote.
The proposed ultrasound bill will give a list of crisis pregnancy centers that provide free ultrasounds. But the ultrasounds won’t meet the legal requirements needed to obtain an abortion.
