By Rep. Joe Fischer – Requires a physician or qualified technician to provide a written medical description of images depicted during a required ultrasound prior to an abortion so the woman has all the information about the decision she is making prior to the abortion. Note: The 2017 Ultrasound Bill is tied up in court.
Advocates: A woman needs to receive complete information on her pregnancy and unborn child. Currently, she does not see an ultrasound image of her unborn child.
Opponents: A woman does not need to see anything prior to her abortion. It’s her body and it’s her choice.
Status: Has been filed in the House but has not moved out of Committee.
