Abortion – Ultrasound Information

HB0251 Abortion – ultrasound information – AN ACT relating to public health and safety; requiring physicians to provide patients with specified information before certain nonemergency abortion procedures; providing definitions and amending a definition; and providing for an effective date.

We oppose this bill. This bill is an unwarranted intrusion into private medical care. HB0251 would require women who are considering abortion to be given government-scripted information and then wait 24 hours before having the procedure. This bill interferes with the doctor-patient relationship and inserts the government into the examination room, and allows politics come between a woman and her physician.

Help us protect a woman’s right to choose; call your Representative and ask them to vote NO on HB0251.
