Wisconsin Senate passes bill allowing optional ultrasound before abortion
The Wisconsin state senate approved a bill this morning that would allow women considering an abortion a chance to see an ultrasound of their baby beforehand. In other states with similar laws on the books, abortions have declined as women choose life for their baby.continue at LifeNews
After the vote, Wisconsin Right to Life hailed passage of Senate Bill 206 (Sonya’s Law) in the State Senate.
“Wisconsin Right to Life is deeply appreciative to Senator Mary Lazich for her tremendous leadership on this issue and to the members of the State Senate who voted for this important legislation,” said Susan Armacost, Legislative Director for Wisconsin Right to Life.
I'm not sure if this will be enforced since Wisconsin abortion facilities are not subject to health inspections anyway, unless someone goes under cover.
It is not mandatory, via WRTL:
Will Sonya’s Law force women to have a specific type of ultrasound?Or maybe I'm not understanding what the "options" are.
No. It is up to the woman to choose the type of ultrasound she prefers, after all options are explained to her. The actual language in the law states:
“…perform an obstetric ultrasound on the pregnant woman, using whichever transducer the woman chooses after the options have been explained to her.”
