Ohio House Passes Ultrasound Bill

Wednesday the Ohio General Assembly approved a bill, which would require doctors to offer women seeking abortion care the option to view an ultrasound image of the fetus prior to the procedure. While a woman should have the option to view such an image, legislation mandating policies around ultrasounds is yet another intrusion by lawmakers into the doctor-patient relationship.

The measure passed the House with no debate and will be taken up by the Senate once they reconvene in January.
