Okla. Senate Approves Tougher Abortion Bills

Ad Feedback

The Oklahoma Senate has passed a bill requiring women seeking an abortion to have an ultrasound. The bill also requires doctors describe the fetus to the expectant mother.

Opponents to the measure say the bill would make it more difficult or uncomfortable for women to get abortions.

The legislation is one of five abortion-related bills passed Monday. The other bills require women to complete a lengthy questionnaire before receiving an abortion and mandate certain signs be posted in an abortion clinic.

The ultrasound bill now heads to the Gov. Brad Henry's desk for consideration.

If the bill becomes law, it would give Oklahoma some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country.
