Abortion Sonogram Bill Moves Forward

February 2, 2007, 7:30 AM by News Staff

Abortion Sonogram Bill Moves Forward
A bill that would force another requirement on doctors who do abortions in South Dakota passed its first test today in the Legislature.

The measure would require a doctor who is about to do an abortion to offer the pregnant woman an opportunity to view a sonogram of her unborn child.

If a woman prefers not to look at the computerized ultrasound image, the doctor must document her refusal and get her signature on a form.

The bill is sponsored by Representative Roger Hunt of Brandon. Hunt says the requirement could cause women to at least think about it a little more before going ahead with abortions.

The legislation cleared the House Health Committee by a nine-to-three vote, sending it to the House floor.

HB1296
