Pre-filed Bill S. 0084 ultrasound requirement

Before an abortionist can perform the procedure on a patient, they must verify the baby's gestational age with an ultrasound, they must review the ultrasound pictures with the mother, and the mother must sign an informed consent that she has reviewed the ultrasound pictures. This language simply builds upon current abortion language in the code. This bill has support among those called “pro-life” and “pro-choice”. I am told by those in crisis pregnancy centers that when an ultrasound is viewed, most patients (an estimated 85%) choose life.http://www.scstatehouse.net/sess117_2007-2008/bills/84.htm
